Just because Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young is returning to Alabama in 2022 doesn't mean Nick Saban takes a break from the recruiting trail.

And he doesn't mind burning a fellow SEC school in the process.

On Wednesday, walk-on quarterback Cade Ott Carruth flipped his commitment from Mississippi State to the Crimson Tide. He announced his decision via his Twitter account.

"After a great meeting with Coach Saban and Coach O'Brien and discussion with my family I’ve decided to flip my commitment to the University of Alabama," Carruth

An Alabama native, its not a complete surprise to see the young QB jump at the opportunity be a part of one of the best programs in college football.

In his home state nonetheless.
