Alabama football hosted Theodor Melin Öhrström from Uppsala, Sweden Friday for an unofficial visit before offering him Saturday.
The tight end out of Europe has collected multiple offers from D1 college football programs as of late. Georgia Tech and Arizona State are among the programs that have offered the rising prospect. Öhrström said he had been working to garner attention from a program like Alabama.
“It felt incredible,” Öhrström said. “Getting an offer from a powerhouse like Alabama is something I have been working for a long time.”
Öhrström is quite familiar with Alabama football’s success.
“I think it is an amazing program that has obviously proven itself to be the best in college football in the last 15 years.”
Alabama’s coaching staff extended an offer to Öhrström after watching him participate in camp. The Crimson Tide’s special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Drew Svoboda was very impressed with his understanding of the game.
“Coach Svoboda said that I had a way higher football I.Q. than expected and that I had natural hands,” said Öhrströ.
