Kelby Collins tweeted Thursday he will announce his commitment on Aug. 13.
Collins attends Gardendale High School in Alabama, and he is rated as a four-star prospect on multiple recruiting sites. He currently has Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma and Florida listed as his top 5. He officially visited the Gators, Gamecocks and Bulldogs in June.
The Crimson Tide have actively recruited Collins since offering him in April 2021. Alabama’s defensive line coach Freddie Roach has led the Tide’s push for Collins.
“My relationship with Alabama is good,” Collins said. “I talk to them a couple of times a week. They talk to my parents a lot. I feel like my relationship with them is pretty good.”
Alabama’s coaches are not the only ones recruiting Collins. A few of the Tide’s commits are pushing to get him on board as well. Hunter Osborne, who committed to Alabama Monday, said Collins is a player he wants to join him in Tuscaloosa minutes after announcing his decision.
“Kelby is next,” Osborne said. “I am trying to get him. I am going to continue to be on him.”
