OT James Carpenter decides on Alabama
When did that decision take place?
"When I got back home from my Ole Miss visit, I talked it over with my offensive line coach, Coach Powers, and he helped me make it."
What put Alabama over the top?
"That is the place for me. I can start over there next year and take Andre Smith's spot, and I want to win. They have Coach Saban, and they have Coach Petry, and I feel like he can make me the best offensive lineman I can possibly be."
Will the 6' 5", 305 pounder take anymore visits?
"That is it. I have taken all five visits. I went to Iowa State, Texas Tech, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss. In that order. When I went to Alabama, I felt it was the place for me, but I wanted to take all of my visits to make sure. After taking all of my visits, I just did not get that feeling that I got while I was at Alabama."
