Christopher Walsh

Alabama's recruiting grip on the state got even tighter when Kristian Story committed to the Crimson Tide on Thursday morning.

Story, considered a 4-star athlete, is from Lanett, Ala. With his addition, Alabama has seven of the top nine in-state players committed for the Class of 2020.

Listed as 6 foot 1, 210 pounds, he's expected to come in as a quarterback, but could also play defensive back. The Crimson Tide landed highly-rated quarterback Drake Maye for the Class of 2021 on Wednesday.

Story, a one-time Tennessee commit, is rated the No. 10 athlete and the No. 224 overall player in the nation per the 247Sports composite rankings.
