You people are taking what he said way out of context
This must be the case.
If the interviewer sets the question up with that scenario, that is an understandable reply for someone who still doesn't know.
But, if not, the reply is clearly understood to mean that he will commit to Bama on Jan. 4th.
I haven't read the article, so I don't know. And, if the interviewer didn't make that clear, he's irresponsible at the very least.
I'll say this, if Beckwith can go on national television, and follow up the Collins commitment with a similar announcement, this will not be just a matter of favoring Alabama, but sticking it to LSU.
I've heard that the Beckwith family is very pro-Saban. I seem to remember Darry's family being outspoken about Miles on several occasions.
The fact that many of you are confident on this kid does give me a little hope, but you can put me in the guardedly optimistic category on this one.
