According to reports by ESPN, Scout.com, and PalmettoSports.com, Chris Bonds has committed to Alabama.
Bonds is a 6'4 and 280 pound defensive end prospect out of South Carolina. He is listed as a four-star with both major recruiting services, and he chose the Tide over offers from the likes of USC, Notre Dame, Tennessee, South Carolina, and others.
Bonds has a sister at Tennessee, and many thought that he would eventually be a Volunteer, but they dropped out of the running after he watched us (on a visit to Knoxville) hammer the Vols in late October and the resignation of Phil Fulmer.
Moreover, Bonds said he will not take any other official visits, and with a 3.2 core GPA, he will have no problems qualifying academically.
