Alabama secured its fifth recruiting commitment on Saturday, when Blake Sims of Gainesville, Ga., committed to the Tide.
Sims, a 6-foot, 180-pound quarterback and safety, picked UA over offers from Arkansas, Florida State, and Georgia. He is not yet rated by Scout.com or Rivals.com.
"Blake feels like he has a chance to come in and play quarterback right away at Alabama," Gainesville High offensive coordinator Todd Wofford told BamaOnline. "Blake said if he doesn't play quarterback, he wouldn't mind playing defensive back because of Coach Saban's reputation."
