Brandon Deaderick has been torn for the last weeks between the University of Alabama and Auburn University. On Friday afternoon he decided to end his recruitment.

"Roll Tide! I committed to Alabama 30 minutes ago. I called Coach Randolph and told him. He was very excited," Brandon Deaderick said.

Why did he pick the Tide?

"I like it because I fit in with their defense more than I would anywhere else and I would excel more there."

"The broadcasting school at Alabama played a big part in my decision."
