Markail Benton was looking like an Auburn lean but commits to Alabama:

"I would like to thank the schools that have recruited me," Benton told the crowd. "It was a very hard decision to decide, but I think I've found the right school for me to further my education and play football. Every child should have that dream to be successful in life.

"My decision is, as you all should see, the University of Alabama. Roll Tide."

Benton is the third commit this week for Alabama - all of whom were at camping in Tuscaloosa.

Brent will have a more in depth look at the latest commit sometime this weekend.

Roll Tide!
