Alabama stopped by Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep on Friday which sparked rumors that the Crimson Tide are interested in quarterback Tyler Bruggman and wide receiver Devon Allen as a package deal.
Bruggman, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound four-star quarterback, said he wasn't so sure about that but he's definitely interested in hearing more from the SEC powerhouse.
"They actually came by (Friday) to Brophy," Bruggman said. "I don't know what their plans are as far as a package deal but I'm pretty sure they're interested in both of us.
"They came and watched me throw and then I guess they're going to take the tape back and look it over and go from there."
Bruggman, who threw for 2,497 yards with 37 touchdowns and two interceptions in his junior season, said he hasn't talked much with Allen about being a package deal to Alabama but he's definitely open to all ideas.
The four-star quarterback plans to take a little more time with his decision-making process which means Alabama could sneak in late.
"I haven't talked with Devon too much about it but I'm definitely interested in Alabama," Bruggman said. "It's obviously a great program, they're very disciplined and they know how to win so that's something that intrigues all recruits."
Rated as the No. 14 pro-style quarterback and No. 232 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, Bruggman said he's getting closer to making a decision but will probably wait until after his junior year.
He recently visited Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan State, Purdue and Washington State and Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State and Iowa State have also offered.
Bruggman said recently that Alabama along with Utah, Iowa, Oregon State, Vanderbilt and Houston have reached out. A commitment could be close but Bruggman is not ready yet.
"I'd say I'm fairly close," Bruggman said.
"I'm kind of focusing on spring ball right now and we have finals coming up and then once school is over I'll have some time to sit down and reflect on the visits and kind of think about which place is the best for me."
