Christopher Walsh

The University of Alabama football year added yet another defensive back to the recruiting Class of 2020 when junior college All-American Ronald Williams Jr. announced his pledge to the Crimson Tide on Saturday night. 

Williams tweeted: "My recruitment is officially shut down & I will be committing to the University of Alabama!!" 

The sophomore at Hutchinson C.C. is listed as 6-2, 188 pounds. 

Nick Saban visited his home in Ferriday, La., on Wednesday. 

Per the 247Sports composite rankings Williams is rated the No. 5 cornerback and the No. 14 junior college player in the nation. He's considered a consensus four-star prospect.

His addition gives Alabama 25 commitments, although the Crimson Tide is expected to sign a couple more. The Early Signing Period begins Wednesday.

Very important get for Alabama here. Probably the top cover guy among the DBs on board in terms of playing corner with leverage. Good instincts and ball skills here, which you'd expect with his great size at 6-1+. Tech is solid but could be polished up in Tuscaloosa. Like with the other DBs, a bit curious on his speed at that size, but experience and production should afford Williams early chances in 2020.
