Quinton Dial
Scout.com Rating: Four-star
Scout.com Rank: No. 2 Defensive Tackle, No. 4 overall prospect
Size: 6-foot-6, 310-pounds
School: East Mississippi Community College Scooba, Miss.; Originally from Clay-Chalkville High School
Projected Position: Defensive End

Stats: Dial had 76 tackles this past season and 7.5 sacks in 10 games. He will have three years to play two at the Capstone.

Commit Date: 6/8/2008
Recruiting Competition: Auburn, Florida

Why Alabama: "I knew Alabama was always the right place for me. I like all the people there. The coaches kept in touch with me in junior college. I knew I was going there. I like the coaching staff a lot. Coach Saban is a great coach. I like where the program is at right now. Everything about Alabama is great. I love the facilities and the stadium."

Strengths/Improvements: "I felt like I had a pretty good year. There is always room for improvement. I am trying to get better everyday. I wasn't in good shape when I first arrived in junior college. I worked hard to get in the shape I am in now."

Scout.com says: Always a big kid. Dial has really made strides with his agility and conditioning since his high school days. A player I once pegged as direct to offensive guard now routinely hurdles guards as he charges down the line of scrimmage to cut off a running back going off tackle. Dial must still work on keeping his pads low when he's occupying a double team, but he has a lot of the right tools for the defensive line.
