Damon Payne, the top-ranked defensive lineman in the nation, committed to Alabama today.
USC was a finalist for Payne, who is Alabama's fourth five-star prospect in its Class of 2021 recruiting class.

But it had plenty of money to give former president Max Nikias a $7.7 million golden parachute and a $3 million housing loan?
So USC has money when it wants to spend it.
