Alabama football signed one of the most athletically gifted defensive prospects in the 2021 recruiting class when they got a signature from Keanu Koht during the early signing period.
Koht flipped his commitment from the LSU Tigers to the Crimson Tide on National Signing Day. The Tide did not only secure a signature from a special athlete, but they also secured a signature from an intelligent young man with an infectious personality, according to Vero Beach’s head football coach Lenny Jankowski.
“When you have a kid, who signs with Alabama and is recruited by everyone else his talent is going to speak for itself,” Jankowski told Touchdown Alabama. “Recruiting was kind of weird this year with coaches not being able to come out. But doing his junior season when coaches were able to see and learn about him, it was clear he was much more impressive in person with his personality. You are talking about a kid who is athletically gifted as he is, who also has a 3.9 GPA. He carries himself well in every phase of life. Alabama is getting a kid with the full package.”
