Rivals250 QB Brandon Wimbush has been working towards a commitment for the past few months. An offer from Alabama may have delayed the Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep signal caller's decision.
"I heard little flurries about it maybe coming in last week but they called my head coach couple days ago and made it official," the 6-foot-2, 208-pound Wimbush said via text message. "My reaction was very similar to anyone else who gets an offer from ALABAMA!! Excited! I told Minkah right away."
Alabama commit and five-star defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick is Wimbush's teammate at St. Peter's Prep. Fitzpatrick immediately went to work on trying to make his current teammate his future teammate as well.
"He was telling me to at least take a visit because he feels like I would fall in love with the place," Wimbush said. "He was also talking about how we could possibly play together on the next level."
Penn State, Ohio State and Miami are the three schools that are linked to Wimbush most but there are some other schools that could be right in the thick of things.
"Stanford came by to watch me throw and they went back to report to coach Shaw," he said. "I'm waiting on that and then I will know for sure with them.
"Alabama is definitely a school I would like to consider and it's an honor being looked at by them," said Wimbush. "I don't know exactly where they fall in my standings.
He does not have any visits planned at this time.
