"I went ahead and committed to Alabama
yesterday," said William Vlachos
from Birmingham, (Ala.). "I accepted the greyshirt offer. I actually received a written offer in the mail last week."
"Right now it's still a greyshirt offer but, coach [Bob] Connelly is working on trying to make it an offical offer so I can come in next fall. They recruited me to play center."
"I went to LSU last weekend. I had a week to think about my decison. I felt real good about Alabama."
"I felt real comfortable with the coaching staff. I talked to coach [Mike] Shula for a while after camp yesterday. He spoke to my mom as well. We all felt like it was the best decision for me."
The Crimson Tide has a solid commitment in the Mountain Brook standout.
"I am finished with my recruitment," Vlachos said. "I am committed to Alabama."
Vlachos becomes Alabama's first in-state high school commitment for the 2007 class.
