As was speculated and later confirmed in the fan posts, Tampa, FL QB Phillip Ely has committed to the Crimson Tide. This is a little out of the blue as Rivals didn't even list an offer from Alabama as of this morning, but apparently Ely was considered an LSU lean until the commitment of Stephen Rivers and Alabama swooped in with an offer. Welcome aboard. Update: two notes from Andrew Bone 1) Ely informed the staff two weeks ago of his decision. 2) He will graduate early and enroll in January. Anyone care to speculate how much his being able to enroll early helped land him that offer to begin with?
