Kenyan Drake Reflects On Signing With Alabama

Posted by | Apr 17, 2012 | -

By Michael Carvell, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Alabama’s Nick Saban finished with this year’s No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the nation, and it was boosted immensely by the signing of eight prospects from Georgia. One of Alabama’s top imports from Georgia was Kenyan Drake, the AJC Super 11 running back from Hillgrove High School. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Drake committed to Alabama over UGA and Georgia Tech nearly a year before signing day, and never wavered. He reflected on his recruiting journey with the AJC:

What do you think it will be like to play for a guy that many consider to be college football’s best coach? “It’s like you really don’t want to disappoint him. You see how hard he works and how prepared he is, day in and day out, to be the best at what he’s doing. He’s a very good role model. Once you see everything he’s accomplished and trying to accomplish, it’s almost like all that success is going to rub off on you. Because Coach Saban is your coach, you’re definitely going to strive to be the best you can be, regardless.” Drake will report to Alabama on May 27, the day after his high school graduation. [More]
