News and notes from Friday night's MVP Camp held near Atlanta.
Antonio Riles talks Tide offer
"I was at Alabama's camp today," said Antonio Riles. "The camp was real intense. I liked it a lot. They are real intense coaches. They want you to get better. They try to perfect your skills. I had a real good time hanging out in T-Town.
"I did everything. I worked at 5-technique, the 3, and I did one rep at the zero. They told me they don't know yet where they will play me. I could turn into a big 3 or play the 5. They talked about playing tight end as well."
Riles was invited to coach Saban's office following his camp performance.
"After we got finished with the second practice we went to coach Saban's office," he said. "He was saying it's a real good opportunity. We can get a good education and shot at the NFL. He said we'll stay out of trouble at Alabama."
The 6-foot-4, 271-pound prospect enjoyed working out with the Tide's defensive line coach.
"Coach [Chris] Rumph is a real good guy," Riles said. "He is funny. He doesn't cut you any slack. He is going to work you real hard. He is intense. He wants you to get better."
Alabama has quickly become a contender for one of the South's top defenders.
"This was my second visit over there," Riles said. "I went on a visit there in January. I like everything about Alabama. That's all I can say. I just like everything about them."
