Moton executed his plan

T.D. Moton committed to Alabama Tuesday and that is exactly what he planned to do...

It is official. It is public. It happened in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Tuesday. T.D. Moton committed to Alabama.

Billy Napier went into northern Louisiana a year ago and helped the Tide land O.J. Smith, Laurence Jones, and Cameron Robinson, and Cameron Sims. Now he has led the way in the Moton recruitment.

Alabama has been Moton's top choice for some time, he has just been quiet about it.

"I've known I was going to commit to Alabama this week for a while," said Moton. "They have been on top for a long time and I want to be part of the Alabama program."

Alabama wins championships, both SEC and national ones, and Moton wants to be part of some of those titles in the coming years.

"Alabama wins -- they win a lot. They produce a lot of great defensive linemen and they have great coaches."

Moton had over 20 scholarship offers and the four-star defensive tackle out of Shreveport (La.) Woodlawn is now just where he wants to be.

He made an early commitment to Mississippi State, but decided to back off that early in 2014. Moton is sure of this decision.

"Oh yeah, Alabama is the school," said Moton. "It has been Alabama for a long time now. I just haven't been talking about them or telling anyone.

"I have kept it quiet, but Alabama is where I will be going."

Moton is the No. 13 defensive tackle and No. 147 overall prospect in the country on Scout. Recommended Stories
