Alabama has received a commitment from defensive lineman Darren Lake from Sumter County High School in York, Ala.
Lake, who is Alabama’s 14th commitment for the 2012 class, received a scholarship offer from Alabama earlier this month. He gave his pledge to the Crimson Tide after competing in a camp in Tuscaloosa during the weekend.
“I talked with Coach Nick Saban and he said he was happy to have me and he wanted me to work on my grades,” Lake told 247Sports.com. “It feels great to commit to Alabama. I chose Alabama because it’s close to home and is a good program. I think I did great today. There were a lot of other really good players there, but I thought I did pretty good.”
Lake chose Alabama over an offer from rival Tennessee. Auburn, Mississippi State and Alabama-Birmingham had also shown interest.
