Early in the summer, 6-foot-5 220-pound tight end prospect Miller Forristall was meeting with small D-I schools like Jackson State. Now two months later the three-star recruit has committed to arguably the top college football program in the nation — Alabama.
“Just to think that two months before I had been visiting Jacksonville State. Nothing against Jacksonville State — they should’ve beat Auburn, but sitting in front of Saban was kind of terrifying,” Forristall told SEC Country reporter Thomas Scott earlier this week. “He’s the most powerful man in college football. It was very surreal, but it was a lot of fun. Crazy, but fun.”
The senior tight end received offers from Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi State and California, but ultimately decided to play for Bama because as he says, “I wanted to go play for the biggest and the best college football I can. At the time, I never thought I’d have the opportunity to go play at the University of Alabama or anywhere in the SEC.”
