While Texas A&M and LSU have been busy the past month or month and a half, Alabama’s 2015 hadn’t grown since Feb. 1–until Thursday.
Defensive end Anfernee Jennings, a defensive end who registered 30 quarterback hurries as a high school junior last year, committed to the Crimson Tide following a junior day visit and scholarship offer this past weekend. Jennings is 6-foot-3, 260-pounds and out of Dadeville (Ala.). He is a three-star prospect and considered one of the top players in the state of Alabama.
Mississippi State and Arkansas had also offered Jennings a scholarship.
Alabama’s 2015 class, which bumped past LSU for No. 2 in the nation after Jennings’ addition, has three defensive ends now–five-star prospect Mekhi Brown, four-star Jonathan Ledbetter and Jennings. Jennings is the third in-stater to join the class. Texas A&M currently holds the nation’s top spot in the recruiting rankings.
