Alabama added another big lineman to its 2014 recrutiing class on Tuesday, as Plant City (Fla.) 3-star guard Montel McBride committed to the Crimson Tide while competing at The Opening on Oregon, according to 247Sports' Keith Niebuhr.

McBride (6-4, 332), who could project as an offensive guard or a defensive tackle, also had offers from Auburn, Florida State, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Louisville, Marshall, South Florida, Central Florida, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Ohio and Western Kentucky.

Rivals.com rates him as the No. 21 offensive guard in the country, while 247Sports lists him as the No. 24 defensive tackle. Both rate him as a 3-star prospect.

McBride told Rivals.com earlier this month that the Tide had just begun recruiting him in May. "I like how dominant they are," he told Rivals. "They impose their will on anyone. They make the other teams quit. They are successful every year. They aren't good for a time, and then fade away. They are always good. They are known for putting linemen in the league. That's what I really like about them."
