He’s rankedas the No. 12 edge in the country, and the No. 11 player in the state of Alabama, according to the 247Sports Composite. His finalists were Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Florida.
“I’m looking for people that want to bond with you,” Faulk said at Big Cat Weekend when asked what’s important in his recruitment, per the Montgomery Advertiser. “People that are really about family.
