The Crimson Tide received a pledge from Kevin Harris, a 6-foot-4, 218-pound weakside defensive end. Harris is rated sixth nationally at his position by 247Sports, which also lists him as the nation's No. 86 overall prospect.

Alabama's crop of 11 commitments is ranked No. 1 by 247Sports.

Auburn landed a commitment from Grayson's highest-rated player, No. 1 outside linebacker Owen Pappoe. The 6-1, 209-pound Pappoe, who picked the Tigers over Georgia, is the nation's No. 8 overall recruit.

Pappoe is just the sixth commitment for Auburn, which has the No. 19 class nationally.

Grayson held a ceremony in which four of its players committed, with four-star offensive tackle Wanya Morris selecting Tennessee over Auburn and four-star cornerback Kenyatta Watson picking Texas over Notre Dame.
