Alabama Lands Verbal Commitment from Opelika DB Stephen Roberts

By Matt Scalici | mscalici@al.com

Alabama picked up its fifth commitment of the 2014 recruiting class on Wednesday when Opelika cornerback Stephen Roberts pledged his commitment to the Crimson Tide. Roberts, a 6-foot, 177-pound defensive back rated a four-star prospect by 247Sports and ESPN, informed Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart of his decision after Smart visited Opelika to observe Roberts during spring practice.

"It was an easy decision for me," Roberts said. "Everything about Alabama fits me perfectly from their style of play to the relationships I have built with the coaching staff. It's just the perfect fit for me as a player and as a student."
