Alabama had an advantage when it came to recruiting 4-star 2023 offensive lineman Wilkin Formby.

Despite Nick Saban and his staff recruiting well nationally, often pulling in top recruits from California, Florida and everywhere in between, Formby calls Tuscaloosa home.

And, in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Formby took to Twitter to announce he was staying home, revealing his commitment to the hometown Crimson Tide:

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Formby is the No. 10 offensive tackle in the class of 2023 and the No. 10 overall recruit from the state of Alabama.

Alabama now has 5 players in its 2023 recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 35 in the nation, per 247Sports.
