Patrick Surtain II signs with Alabama in National Signing Day decision

Five-star receiver Jusytn Ross is the top rated player in the state of Alabama
Surtain becomes the second highest-ranked prospect in Alabama's 2018 class, behind only Saint Frances (Md.) Academy defensive end Eyabi Anoma, who signed a National Letter of Intent with the Crimson Tide during the early period in December. The 6-foot-2, 183-pounder could use a little added playing weight, but already has the look of an SEC corner and a future National Football League player. He was one of the few remaining unsigned members of the 2018 class that can step in and help fill the void of NFL-bound defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.
Campbell is the No. 2 ranked corner in this class, behind Surtain Jr., and is the 12th commitment for Georgia ranked in the top-5 of his position. Surtain is also a fan of LSU secondary coach Corey Raymond, a former LSU cornerback and safety who has handled most of Surtain's recruitment.
Still, the Tigers had nine defensive backs in the National Football League in 2017, including Super Bowl winning cornerback Jalen Mills with Philadelphia, to Alabama's seven.
Surtain's announcement comes after he reportedly took official visits to LSU, Alabama and Clemson in January and Miami last weekend. Foster is choosing between Alabama, LSU, Florida State and Texas A&M. Alabama signed five recruits Wednesday to finish with 20 signees. The Bulldogs had the nation's best class.
"So rather than reach for somebody, we'd rather solve the issue another way with maybe a more experienced guy down the road", Saban said.
Joseph committed to LSU last week over such schools as Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas and Clemson.
LSU had apparently previously dropped out of the running for Foster (6-3, 188), the No. 18 dual-threat quarterback in the nation out of Sidney Lanier High in Montgomery, Alabama.
It looks like LSU will come in under 25, which means it would have space for a possible quarterback graduate transfer after spring practice when quarterbacks often made a decision to transfer.
If LSU does not get Goodrich and still decides to go for a 25th signee, that could be No. 41 ranked tight end Glenn Beal (6-5, 245) of John Curtis High in the New Orleans area. He visited Alabama, Texas A&M and Ole Miss last month.
