Alabama picked up its 21st commitment in the 2012 recruiting class Monday when Buford, Georgia native and three star tight end Kurt Frietag announced he would be taking his talents to Tuscaloosa. At 6-foot 4-inches and 235 pounds, Frietag is a very solid prospect who comes from a program with a long history of championships. Kurt is Alabama’s second commitment in this class from Buford, joining teammate and linebacker Dillon Lee.
The two Tide commitments are not only teammates, they are best friends, and have been since early childhood. Back in February both expressed their interest and hope that they could continue to play together if the right college extended offers to them both, and that has now become reality.
Check in with us with a comprehensive breakdown of Frietag in the near future. Roll Tide Kurt, we are extremely glad to see you become a part of the Alabama tradition of excellence.
