The Alabama Crimson Tide received a commitment Saturday evening for its 2015 recruiting class from defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter.
Ledbetter, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive tackle from Tucker, Ga., is ranked a four-star recruit by 247Sports. He had offers from Auburn, Georgia and Clemson among others.

Alabama has been hosting several recruits over the weekend, and Ledbetter made the announcement during what was an unofficial visit.
The news of Ledbetter’s announcement should help Tide fans still dealing with the news that top recruit QB Ricky Town rescinded his commitment to the Crimson Tide and pledged to the USC Trojans on Saturday.
