SOCIAL MEDIA SLANT: Alabama commits react to Kadyn Proctor's flip to Bama
Nick Saban and his staff at Alabama continued to stay hot on the recruiting trail ahead of the Early Signing Period. Just over a week after earning a commitment from Keon Keeley, the Crimson Tide added fellow five-star Kadyn Proctor to the fold on Tuesday.
Proctor had been committed to the Iowa Hawkeyes since June 30, but ultimately decided that Tuscaloosa will be his home for the next three-to-five years. His flip comes days after a multi-day unofficial visit to T-Town.
Early Signing Period: Final predictions on Alabama targets
Proctor is the No. 12 overall player on the On3 Consensus, as well as the second-ranked offensive tackle in this recruiting cycle. As such, his decision to join Alabama’s class on Tuesday drew reactions from some of Bama’s top commits in the 2023 and 2024 classes.
Here are some social media posts from Alabama’s commits, a staff member, and even a current starter following Proctor’s announcement.
Social media reactions to Kadyn Proctor’s commitment to Alabama
Elite 2023 running back Richard Young posted last week, “We want Kadyn Proctor,” tagging the five-star o-lineman in his tweet. He also tweeted a similar message to Keon Keeley shortly after Young committed to Alabama in July.
It’s safe to say that Young was thrilled with today’s announcement.
Jaylen Mbakwe, Bama’s highest-rated commit in the 2024 class, also chimed in on Tuesday afternoon.
Both Mbakwe and Young are hoping that Bama will add in-state five-stars James Smith and Qua Russaw to the fold on Wednesday.
Fellow running back commitment Justice Haynes also expressed excitement following Proctor’s commitment.
Bama offensive lineman Tyler Booker spent time with Proctor this past weekend, and took some credit for his commitment today.
Fellow Crimson Tide o-lineman JC Latham took to Twitter as well on Tuesday.
