4-star defensive tackle T.D. Moton was in Tuscaloosa for the first day of Alabama's first High School Football Camp of the summer (June 1-4) and came away with an offer. It didn't take long for the Shreveport, Louisiana lineman to say "Roll Tide!" But this was not a spontaneous decision.
"I've known I was going to commit to Alabama this week for a while," Moton told scout.com. "They have been on top for a long time and I want to be part of the Alabama program."
With several scholarship offers from across the country (FSU, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Texas A&M, and So Cal just to name a few), the Woodlawn High School product was just waiting on Alabama to offer.
"Oh yeah, Alabama is the school," said Moton. "It has been Alabama for a long time now. I just haven't been talking about them or telling anyone.

At 6-2.5/310, Moton is a mass of a man much in the mold of A'Shawn Robinson.
Before transferring to Woodlawn, Moton helped lead Calvary Baptist into the playoffs with 30 solo tackles, 55 assisted tackles, 1 FF, 1 FR, and 2 sacks.
Coach Billy Napier is credited with bringing in Moton. He has also gotten 2015 verbals from LB/S Keaton Anderson (Florence, AL), WR Calvin Ridley (Pompano Beach, FL), and WR Daylon Charlot (Patterson, LA).
Napier was the lead recruiter responsible for bringing in the 2014 Monroe, LA area players Cameron Robinson, Cameron Sims, and Laurence "Hootie" Jones , as well as Bossier City, LA lineman O.J. Smith.
Moton is the 18th verbal commitment to Alabama from the 2015 class.
