Alabama picked up a four-star quarterback out of enemy territory on Tuesday.
Eli Holstein, from Zachary, La., and rated the nation’s eighth-ranked QB in the Class of 2023, committed to the Crimson Tide over LSU, Florida and Oregon, to name a few.
He had previously committed to Texas A&M last June 25, then decommitted in March.
Alabama coach Nick Saban and Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher are at odds over comments Saban made last week that alleged Texas A&M is buying players’ commitments.
The 6-foot-4 Holstein is the 54th ranked recruit overall, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
“I’m very excited and excited to be over with it,” Holstein told On3 Sports. “Now, I know where I’m going and it feels like home and I’m excited for my future and what I can do at Alabama.”
Quarterback Arch Manning, the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2023 class, still has Alabama on his radar. It is one of three schools — Georgia and Texas are the other two — he has scheduled for official visits in June.
