Alabama played host to a major offensive tackle in Arie Kouandjio this past weekend. The Rivals250 lineman was joined on the trip by his star brother, 2011 offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio who took an unofficial visit.
"It was pretty fun," he said. "I liked it a lot.
"I got there Friday and stayed until Sunday. I mostly went around with my brother and his host, Chance Warmack. It was a lot of fun and a great experience. I love the players down there.

"I also hung out with the coaches including the strength and conditioning coach. He was my favorite. He's high intensity and not a shy person at all. They were all real nice guys. I love the coaches there.
"I did get to talk to Coach Saban a lot too."
One thing stuck out from interacting with the players more.
"The thing I liked about the team is that they just won the national championship, but they are all humble and respect the job. They are all good people."
What did the visit do for the Crimson Tide?
"They're up there," he said. "It was overall a great experience and one of the better visits I've been on. I like that they do it the biggest and best. Everything they do is best and the outcome is from that."
No other visits are set for Kouandjio at this time.
Meanwhile, two new schools have offered the junior lineman.
"The last offer I got was from Virginia Tech and then Nebraska also offered," he said. "I'm going to call the coaches from those schools sometime soon."
