A near handful of Florida natives that are currently committed elsewhere invaded the University of Alabama‘s campus this weekend for one of their five official visits that the NCAA grants seniors each year.
Amir Rasul, a Florida State running back commit who attends high school just a short drive up the street from the University of Miami (Fl) at Coral Gables (Fla.) High, was one of those highly-regarded seniors that spent their weekend mingling with Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.
Checking in as Scout’s 13th-ranked running back and 209th-ranked player overall, Rasul is a hot commodity on the recruiting front with additional offers from Miami, Florida, Georgia, USC, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Wisconsin and West Virginia among others.
“It was amazing,” Rasul said when asked about his Alabama visit. “With this being my first official, this was probably one of the best campuses I’ve seen. The coaches and everyone were really nice. I think that was probably part of their job, but I really got a good feel for them.
“There was a lot to do on the campus itself. There’s a building going up every 100 days, so there’s going to be a lot more people this year, next year and the year after, which is just a lot more networking for me as a student.”
