Da’Shawn Hand of Woodbridge High School in Virginia has just announced his commitment to attend Alabama on Thursday.
Hand made frequent trips to Alabama to establish a relationship with the entire coaching staff and he thought it was, “Amazing.”
“The campus life is amazing,” Hand said. “I know half the team already. The coaching staff is amazing. Why not go where it’s a great possibility you could win a national championship?
When I took my visit, I took two visits. I got to see what the campus life is outside of football season as well as my official. I saw how the gameday atmosphere is, the culture. They have a winning tradition. They don’t lie to you. I know when I go in, I won’t be No. 1 on the depth chart.”
Hand will be joining offensive lineman Cameron Robinson, giving the Crimson Tide two five-star prospects.
According to Hand’s mentor John Harris, the coaches were honest and caring and expressed that they wanted to see hand excel in the classroom and the football field.
“The coaches showed him you can go into civil engineering and be an elite football player,” said Harris. “They made him a believer on that, and that meant a lot.”
