Former Texas Commit A'Shawn Robinson Flips, But to Alabama

Stephen Dunn

Five-star defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson withdrew his commitment to Texas earlier in the week, but chose Alabama over USC Wednesday afternoon.

Highly ranked defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson of Fort Worth, Texas. announced he would be signing with the University of Alabama Wednesday afternoon.

Word spread Tuesday that the 6-foot-5, 305-pound behemoth, who played at Arlington Heights High, de-committed from Texas, but it was Alabama, not USC, receiving the spoils.

Robinson took an official visit to USC in December. However, the trip to Los Angeles wasn't enough to convince him to spend the next four years in cardinal and gold.

He was once believed to likely choose between the Longhorns and the Trojans, but Alabama snuck in for the steal instead.

Scout lists Robinson as the top defensive tackle and a top five player overall. While Rivals still thinks he is a five-star recruit, they rank him as the No. 4 DT and 33rd overall. ESPN holds him in less esteem, listing him 105th overall as the No. 11 defensive tackle.

Robinson also has the potential to play on the offensive line should Nick Saban decide to use him on that side of the ball.
