Jalyn Armour-Davis committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide on Friday afternoon.
The news of the Mobile, Alabama native’s commitment to the Tide was reported by Ben Thomas of the Alabama Media Group.
The four-star cornerback is the fifth member of Alabama’s class of 2018, which currently has four four-star players. Armour-Davis joins wide receiver Xavier Williams, outside linebacker Quay Walker and defensive end Jordan Davis in that company, with three-star punter Skyler DeLong being the fifth player in the bunch.
Armour-Davis was thought to be in contention for both Alabama and the Auburn Tigers, among a few other pursuers of the 6-foot, 160-pound cornerback out of St. Paul’s Episcopal High School. He ranks third among players in the state, trailing five-star wide receiver Justyn Ross and four-star pro-style quarterback Jack West, a Stanford commit. He also checks in at 15th among cornerbacks in the class of 2018 and is ranked 121st overall.
The Tide’s class, a bit of a slow builder, ranks 54th in the country and 12th in the SEC for 2018 as of now. One might expect that number to climb up eventually.
