Tide Football Picks Up Two More Commits
TUSCALOOSA, AL| Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban picked up two more commitments for the 2007 season as Houston, TX safety Tarence Farmer and Dora, AL defensive end/linebacker Chavis Williams committed to play for the Crimson Tide.
Farmer, who just received a scholarship offer this week, picked the Tide over multiple other offers including Tennessee, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Houston, Kansas, and UTEP.
The 6'1 190 lbs. head hunter is also extremely fast as evident by his 40 yard dash time, which is clocked at 4.4. Former Texas star quarterback and current Tide assistant coach, Major Applewhite, who recruits Texas for Alabama, was one of the biggest factors in landing Farmer.
Dora, AL defensive end/linebacker, Chavis Williams, informed the Tide staff he would sign with Alabama on Friday morning. He was also considering Auburn, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Marshall.
The 6'5 220 pound Williams, a lifelong Alabama fan, had not received an offer from the Tide until the last few days as coach Nick Saban is trying to figure out how many scholarships he has available for this year's class. When Williams got the offer from the Tide he committed right away.
Both are expected to sign their letters of intent on National Signing Day this coming Wednesday, February 7.
