Four-star wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is off the board.

Bellaire (Tex.) Episcopal four-star receiver Jaylen Waddle was one of the last 2018 recruits to announce on National Signing Day.

Waddle revealed his choice between a pair of SEC schools moments ago.

He's going to Alabama, picking the Tide over Texas A&M, TCU, Florida State and others.

Waddle is a quality addition to an Alabama class that is ranked surprisingly low at No. 9 in the country. Yes, the Crimson Tide are still top 10 but they've been No. 1 for several years in a row, so this is a drop-off.

Waddle is the No. 5 wide receiver and the No. 39 player in the 2018 class.

Alabama also inked four-star wide receiver Xavier Williams.
