Alabama Football Recruiting: LSU Tackle Flips to the Tide

In what has been an eventful week on the recruiting trail, Alabama adds a behemoth lineman to the 2015 class

After taking his official visit to The University of Alabama on December 12th, Matt Womack officially flipped his commitment from LSU to the Tide today. The 6'7" 320-pound mountain of a man is projected to play offensive tackle at the next level, but also plays on the defensive line. He reportedly never leaves the game on offense or defense, and has great conditioning for someone his size.

He ran a 5.05 forty yard dash, which is really impressive for a person of his size. He mentioned back in September that coach Saban is recruiting him for his "size, speed, and toughness."

The three star lineman out of Magnolia Heights High School is the 15th best player out of the state of Mississippi and the 68th ranked offensive tackle in the nation. Overall, he is the lowest ranked member of the Tide's 2015 class so far by 247Sports' composite rankings.

Alabama already has Lester Cotton (T/G), Dallas Warmack (G), Brandon Kennedy (G/C), and Richie Petitbon (G), so adding Womack as a tackle could round out the class and make an entire offensive line of freshman. Thinking wishfully, that could lead to some really great chemistry between these guys in the upcoming years.

With Daylon Charlot still holding to his Alabama pledge despite many rumors circulating, Womack's commitment brings the Tide's class up to 23 players for 2015.
