HUNTSVILLE - The University of Alabama landed its second commitment in as many days when Huntsville High School offensive lineman Grant Hill gave a verbal pledge to Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban.
“That’s where I belong,” Hill said. “I can see myself going to Alabama. I feel like they will develop me better than any other school as both a person and a football player. I feel like the coaches are the best fit for me."
Hill visited Tuscaloosa on Saturday for Alabama’s junior day over the weekend where he spent the majority of the day with UA offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland.
“Me and Coach Stoutland clicked when we met,” Hill said. “We have similar personalities, and I can see him as my coach.”
Hill becomes the ninth commitment in the 2013 class, and the second this week. ESPNU 150 Watch List running back Tyren Jones committed to the Crimson Tide on Tuesday night.
