Considered by many to be the best cornerback prospect in the nation, Kirkpatrick is ready to play college ball today, yet still has room for improvement. A bit more muscle on his long frame will match will with his great speed and hands.
Nick Saban doesn’t lose many in Alabama, and he’s not likely to lose this one. The run of defensive backs that Texas has put into the NFL gives Texas a shot, but not a very good one.
Kirkpatrick is expected to announce today at 2pm.
Update #1: As expected, Kirkpatrick chose Alabama. He said that Texas “doesn’t have enough swagger”, whatever that means.
