Coveted 2023 Quarterback Commits to Alabama
Highly touted 2023 quarterback prospect Eli Holstein out of Zachary High School in Louisiana announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide on Tuesday with a post on Twitter.
Holstein, a four-star prospect, is a former Texas A&M commit who reopened his recruitment in March. Since his decommitment, the Zachary native wowed scouts all across the country with his Elite 11 performance where he put up record numbers, blowing several former Alabama quarterback's performances out of the water.
Holstein told Andrew Bone of Rivals, after visiting Tuscaloosa for the Tide's spring game, "The key message from the staff is that they really want me to be their 2023 quarterback," Holstein continued, "The visit was great (...) The relationship with Coach O'Brien is coming along great. I've been keeping in touch with him a lot and the more I spend time with him the more I can see myself playing for him as well."
The top-rated signal caller in the class, Arch Manning, recently announced his intention to visit Alabama this summer in June, but with the Tide landing a commitment from a fellow 2023 quarterback will the Manning prodigy take Alabama out of consideration?
