Alabama added another ESPN 300 prospect to its No. 1 ranked recruiting class on Sunday when defensive back Ga’Quincy McKinstry announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide.
McKinstry is a 6-foot, 175-pound prospect from Pinson Valley high school in Pinson, Alabama, and chose the Tide over Auburn and LSU. McKinstry is the No. 38 recruit overall and is the sixth top-50 commitment for Alabama in the 2021 class.
Coach Nick Saban and his staff got off to a slow start to this recruiting cycle, but have now added 15 ESPN 300 commitments since May and catapulted themselves into the No. 1 spot past Ohio State.
That included commitments from five-star offensive tackles Tommy Brockermeyer and J.C. Latham and five-star linebacker Dallas Turner.
McKinstry joins Brockermeyer, Latham, Turner, as well as defensive tackle Damon Payne and wide receiver Jacorey Brooks as the six commitments ranked in the top-50. The class now has 17 ESPN 300 commitments and 22 total commits in the class.
