Did you know: Yeldon had 231 carries for 2,196 yards with 31 touchdowns in 12 games during the 2011 season. He was named the MVP in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Classic after rushing for 116 yards on 16 carries and three touchdowns.

Recruitment: Yeldon committed to Auburn this past summer, but decided to switch his commitment to Alabama just before the dead period. Yeldon will enroll at Alabama in January.

Andrew Bone says: Yeldon had an incredible senior season and backed it up with an MVP performance in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Classic. He is bigger, stronger and faster than he was a year ago. He has developed into a premier back with his speed, quickness, vision and patience. He really pushed Winston as the No. 1 recruit in the state.
