    Alabama picks up big-time RB commitment who attends Kirby Smart’s alma mater


    Alabama has snatched up the nation’s No. 7 running back who happens to play at the same high school that Kirby Smart attended.

    Dameon Pierce, a 2018 4-star prospect from Bainbridge (Ga.) High School, has committed to Alabama. Pierce becomes the Crimson Tide’s second commitment in the Class of 2018.

    “Nick Saban told me that he’s glad to have me and Alabama is a hard-working program,” Pierce told SEC Country. “He said I am going to be a great fit and asset for his program.”

    Pierce said Georgia was his No. 2 school, but ultimately Alabama beat out the Bulldogs because of the school’s tradition.

    “Alabama speaks for itself,” Pierce said. “They have a great running backs coach in (Burton) Burns. They are on a level with how I want to do it and how I want to be the best. I want to be great back and Coach Burns can get me there. He’s an excellent coach and I think I fit well in their program.”
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    -- Coach Bryant

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    I've seen his films and we are getting a complete back.
    very good speed, great balance and vision, no wasted movements, his legs are always moving, he is strong and finishes runs with authority.

    welcome. RTR!!

    I love how Coach Saban keeps recruiting for the future, cause it gives the rest of college football heartburn, knowing "The Process" will continue dominating the future of the game & all the can do is take it..

    Really hope this young man sticks. REALLY looks good for someone as young as he is. Looks pretty stout in his lower body to me.

    Agreed all around. Just saw a brief video on Fox 6 here in Birmingham, and he didn't look like any sophomore I've ever seen.

    But Kirby Smart won't stop recruiting him, signing day is 19 months off, and young Mr. Pierce will have UGA fans in his ear for every one of those 570 days.

    I'm glad for the commitment and would love to see him in Tuscaloosa. But this one is far from over.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    South Georgia is such a fertile recruiting area so getting a commitment from such a high profile, albeit young player is terrific for us in the long term. Mods, can you change the town's name to Bainbridge?

    Absolutely. Will have to continue recruiting him as though he were not committed. I`m sure the staff will.

    Good points SJC. Just watched his soph video and I totally agree about his vision and when he sees the hole he hits it hard and decisively. Another stud to add to the stable. Like some others have said we will have to fend off Kirby/UGA to get his signature.
