Tenpenny Decides on Alabama

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The North Little Rock running back tweets he is 100% going to Alabama.

Minutes after the newest Razorback, running back Alex Collins, became an Arkansas commit on national television, North Little Rock's Altee Tenpenny tweeted the following:

This, and a pending signature on Wednesday, reaffirms Tenpenny's pledge he made to Nick Saban more than a year ago.

Was the Collins commitment just enough put him at 100%? That we may never know. The good news is, if you watched Collins' television spot, you know the Hogs got an all-around great kid.

The state's top prospect enjoyed his visit a couple of weeks ago, but it was not enough to woo him away from the world's top recruiter.He will split carries with T.J. Yeldon and Alabama commit Derrick Henry, who set the all-time Florida high school rushing mark formerly held by Emmitt Smith. Tenpenny told Richard Davenport of WholeHogSports.com that he called Brett Bielema earlier today, which helps explain Bielema's honest excitement tonight when Collins became his feature back:

Tenpenny also tweeted this to a follower, who called him out for trying to steal Collin's spotlight.

P.s. Don't be that bitter guy who tweets at recruits who doesn't choose their school. Even Bar Rafaeli wouldn't makeout with that guy.
