As expected, coveted 5-star linebacker Trey DePriest of Springfield made his decision Friday evening to verbally commit to the University of Alabama. Ohio State was widely viewed in the process as his second choice.
Some believed DePriest's zero hour visit to Columbus may have meant a last second change of heart, but DePreist stayed true to much of the recruiting buzz in deciding to
take his talents head out of state and go south to play for Nick Saban & the Crimson Tide. Florida, LSU, and West Virginia were said to also be in the mix.
