Breaking: Quarterback commits to Alabama

A statement from highly-recruited quarterback Cooper Bateman just arrived in my email. It sounds like the rising high school senior be attending Alabama, according to the message delivered by his offensive coordinator at Cottonwood (Utah) High, Scott Cate.

“This has been a great time in my life, I have had the rare opportunity to be able to choose from many great schools that would allow me to get a college degree and continue to play the game that I love.This has been a very difficult decision only because I was able to meet and get to know so many wonderful coaches at so many great universities.

“I have chosen to attend the University of Alabama. I am honored that I will get to learn from Coach Saban and Coach Nussmeier and will get to represent Alabama, the state and the University. I want to thank my coaches at Cottonwood for all they have done for me and mostly to my parents who have made this all possible.”

Bateman is a 4-star prospect according to both and The statement also says he plans on enrolling in January and would be available for 2013 spring practices.
