Adrian Hubbard, a defensive end from Norcross, Ga., announced today that he is committing to Alabama, according to BamaOnLine.com.
The 6-foot-7, 225-pound prospect is likely to play the "Jack" outside linebacker position for the Crimson Tide. This position was filled by Dante Hightower earlier this year until his season ending injury. Now the position belongs to Eric Anders. Hubbard is the second DE/Jack LB commit for 2010. N.C. DE prospect Alfy Hill gave his verbal earlier this year.
Hubbard, rated a four-star prospect by Rivals.com, reportedly chose Alabama over Florida State and South Carolina. Hubbard is ranked #79 in ESPN's Top 100 and is the Nations #8 DE prospect and also an Under armor All-American. Not bad for a kid who recently switched from basketball to football in his Senior year. At 6'7'' he will be a pass break up specialist. What's really amazing is he runs a 4.44 - 40 yd. He will give OC's fits with this speed in backside pursuits.
Welcome aboard Adrian Roll Tide.
