I’d say Hillgrove running back Kenyan Drake’s commitment to Alabama is solid.
Drake, who Rivals has ranked as a 4-star prospect for the 2012 class and the 17th athlete overall, shared the photo on his Twitter feed and clearly the Georgia prospect is ready to take his talents to Alabama sooner rather than later. He also had scholarship offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee as well as others.
Unfortunately for Alabama, they will have to wait a full year to get Drake into the RB mix. They could certainly use him now, however, following the news that heralded RB prospect Dee Hart tore his ACL and will likely miss the entire 2011 season.
Although Drake won’t officially sign for quite a while, he might as well submit this photo as his National Letter of Intent and call it a high school career.
