Alabama lands commitment from CB Maurice Smith
The Alabama Crimson Tide landed its fifteenth commitment of the 2013 recruiting class late Thursday night. Maurice Smith, a cornerback from Sugar Land, Texas, committed to play for the Crimson Tide via a press release.
Smith is rated as a four-star prospect by most recruiting services and chose the Crimson Tide over offers from schools such as LSU, Notre Dame, Texas, Florida, Florida State and Oklahoma.
“Maurice Smith II (Fort Bend Sugarland Dulles c/o 2013) has researched, evaluated, and visited and has reached his decision to commit to University of Alabama and play for Nick Saban’s defense,” the release stated.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder was recently in Tuscaloosa participating in the camp and likely made his decision based on what he saw from Tuscaloosa and the University of Alabama during his stay.
“Recently, Maurice Smith II made a string of visits which included LSU and Alabama . Plans to visit OSU, Texas Tech, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, and a couple of Florida schools were underway, as well as return visits to OU, UT, and Texas A&M, however, all have now been cancelled,” Smith’s press release said.
“The recent camp held at Alabama provided an opportunity for Maurice to evaluate the program in more depth as well as Saban’s style of coaching. The intensity and structure of the Alabama program rested comfortably with Maurice as he likened it to training by his fathers own program as well as that he is currently under at Dulles High School with Coach Jim Creech.”
