New linebackers make Kirby a happy man

Another big get for Saban and company as North Shore High (Houston, TX) LB Zach Whitley commits to the Tide over Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, and others. Folks, any time you can pull a prospect out of Texas who holds an offer from the big Texas programs you've done well. Whitley is a consensus four-star, ranked as the #5 ILB prospect nationally by 247sports. He has a college-ready body at 6'2" and 220 pounds with plenty of speed (SEVENTH grade? seriously?) who should have plenty of flexibility in Kirby's scheme.

Roll Tide, Zach. (and a h/t to CarrotTop4 for bringing it to our attention)
