King Mwikuta made his decision.

Lagrange (Ga.) Troup County four-star linebacker King Mwikuta announced his commitment to Alabama.

Mwikuta is one of the top recruits in the 2019 class, and has been the top target of several SEC schools including Auburn and Texas A&M.

On Friday morning, the No. 5 outside linebacker recruit in the 2019 class according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings announced the Tide is where he wants to further his football career.

He announced his decision on Twitter.

Mwikuta chose Nick Saban and company over his home state of Georgia. Just five days ago, Mwikuta released a top three which included Florida State, Miami and Georgia. Despite those being the "final three" on his list, the top linebacker went with the Tide.

Who can blame him? Alabama has produced some of college football's best linebackers in recent years, and Mwikuta could become the next in a long line.
