Speculation on whether the son of the Alabama legend would choose Bama or FSU has surrounded his recruitment ever since he was given the nickname "Florida State" during Under Armour All-star practices. Well, with this tweet it looks like he's finally made up his mind.

It goes without saying that Alabama picking up at least two elite corners in this class was a high priority for the Alabama coaching staff and it looks like that goal has been firmly met. Both Tony Brown and Marlon Humphrey look the part and should solidify the Alabama defensive backfield for at least the next three seasons.

With Humphrey's commitment Alabama now has 25 commitments for this year's class but there are rumors floating around this morning that three star DT O.J. Smith out of Bossier City, LA may not be able to qualify. He's set to visit Mississippi State this weekend, giving at least some credence to the rumors.

Anyways, welcome aboard Marlon and Roll Tide!
