2011 Prospect Marvin Shinn Commits

Though NSD 2011 is still almost two years away, Alabama picked up a commitment today from Marvin Shinn, the out-of-this-world receiver prospect from Vigor. Those of you who do not follow recruiting may not think much of this one, but it is absolutely huge.

Shinn is currently a sophomore in high school who just turned 16, and he is already nearly 6'3 and 180 pounds. He grabbed 46 passes for 872 yards and 17 touchdowns last year at Vigor, and was arguably the state's top receiver prospect even last year. This kid obviously still has a lot of growing left to do, and at this point he looks to be on pace to be a Julio Jones clone. Browse YouTube for some of his highlight videos... trust me, you'll be impressed.

Shinn had the following to say:

"I didn’t feel like there was any point to wait any longer. Alabama is the school I wanted to go to my whole life. I have always wanted to play at Alabama."
