Ricky Town went to Alabama's camp to show off his talent. He did. And the 2015 quarterback from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure landed a huge offer on Sunday.
"We were here (Saturday) night and the camp started today," Town said.

"I like it a lot. The coaches like me. They pulled me aside and I talked to coach (Nick) Saban for 30 minutes and I've been fortunate enough to get an offer from them.
"It was awesome. It kind of took me back for a little bit being in the presence of Nick Saban and for him to present me with the offer. It's amazing. It's something I dream about so it's a great feeling. I worked out first and then they told me coach Saban wanted to talk to me and he offered me there."
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound quarterback has now been offered by Alabama, Arizona State, Florida State, Miami and UCLA.
During their conversation, Town said Saban especially appreciated that the 2015 quarterback runs a pro-style offense at St. Bonaventure, is comfortable in that system and that's what the Crimson Tide is looking for.
Town, who's also hearing from other major programs and has a full schedule of camps ahead, said the Alabama offer is big and a commitment is considered but that he wants to discuss his entire recruitment with his family first. [rl]
"(Saban) said he was excited and that they usually don't offer kids in my grade this early," Town said. "He said he was excited to find somebody with my skill set that runs a pro-style offense like St. Bonaventure does and to do it so well. He said it's becoming rare with all the spread teams and he said he was really excited about that.
"It's definitely a huge offer. I'm definitely considering it. I still need to take my time and talk to my family about it."
After the Alabama camp, Town will return to California before heading to camps at Texas and Georgia in the coming weeks.
A trip to LSU is also now being considered since offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Cam Cameron has been in contact. Workouts at USC and UCLA later this summer are also planned.
