Recruit picked Alabama’s ‘family environment’

Rivals.com reports that the Alabama Crimson Tide landed a commitment from a tight end recruit out of Mississippi. Malcom Faciane is 6’6″, 265 lbs, according to Rivals.

“I basically decided on Alabama because it is a family environment and I felt at home every time I ever visited Tuscaloosa. I just got more and more comfortable with the coaching staff and my family really likes Coach Saban and the program,” said Faciane who picked the Tide over offers from Ole Miss and Southern Miss.

According to the Picayune Item, “tight end Malcolm Faciane was selected to the second team offense” of the Class 5A All-State team.

A-Day looms as an important recruiting tool for several top prospects in the 2011 class. A large crowd would continue Alabama’s recruiting momentum.
