December Commits:

  • 4-star EDGE Javion Hilson
  • 4-star RB Kevin Riley
  • 4-star WR Aeryn Hampton
  • 4-star EDGE Jayshawn Ross
  • 4-star DL Steve Mboumoua

A team that was one of SEC football's biggest winners from this month's Early Signing Day, Alabama also had a notable month on the recruiting trail by landing five total commitments. Of the five, four came via the Crimson Tide's 2024 class, with the other coming in the 2025 cycle with Javion Hilson, a highly-rated four-star edge rusher out of Cocoa High School in Florida, who was arguably Alabama's biggest overall addition of the month.

As for the 2024 commitments, Alabama flipped two prospects on Early Signing Day in Kevin Riley and Aeryn Hampton, the former of which is a four-star running back out of in-state Tuscaloosa County High School in Alabama who flipped from Miami. Hampton is a four-star athlete out of Daingerfield High School in Texas who flipped to Alabama from Texas.

Alabama's final two commitments came from Jayshawn Ross and Steve Mboumoua, both of which are in the Crimson Tide's 2024 class. Ross is rated as a four-star edge rusher out of Liberty North High School in Missouri, while Mboumoua is a four-star defensive lineman out of Notre Dame de Foy in Canada.
