Anderson feels 'home' at Bama

When the University of Alabama offered Ryan Anderson a scholarship last week, it didn't take long for the Daphne native end to decide where he was going to school.

Anderson committed to Alabama on Saturday during his visit to Tuscaloosa for A-Day. He chose the Crimson Tide over close to a dozen offers, including Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee.

"I just feel when I go to Alabama, I'm at home," Anderson told Rivals.com recruiting analyst Keith Niebuhr last week. "I've been three or four times. It feels good when I'm there. It's a good vibe."

At 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, Anderson played defensive end for Daphne High School last year and recorded 14 sacks, but the UA coaching staff is recruiting him to play the Jack linebacker position in the Crimson Tide's 3-4 defense.

Alabama assistant coaches Jeremy Pruitt and Sal Sunseri served as Anderson's main recruiter during the process.
