4-star DE Cameron Latu spurns west coast powers with commitment Twitter/@cameronlatu40

One of Utah’s top prospects is going to be heading east.

On Friday, four-star defensive end Cameron Latu (6-foot-5, 236 pounds, Salt Lake City, UT) announced that he had picked Alabama over west coast powers like Utah, Washington and USC.

This was the hardest decision I have ever made in my life and I know people were expecting this. Please respect my decision and know this is what’s best for me. With that being said I’d like to announce that I am officially committed to The University of Alabama.

This comes after Latu’s mother said that she would love to see her son at Alabama, and it looks like Latu is fulfilling his mother’s wishes.

Latu is Alabama’s ninth commitment for the 2018 class, which is currently lacking the volume that other classes have. For now, they rank 51st in the nation over at 247Sports.
