Alabama OL commit backs off of verbal commitment, set to sign with PAC-12 program

Recently, reports circulated that  2023 Alabama offensive line commit Raymond Pulido had backed off of his commitment to the Tide.

Later on, his father, Robert, confirmed the news via Twitter.

The caption read, “Very proud of our son….many might not see it as the popular decision.

Having trust in your position coach matters,” Pulido said. He then went on to add,

 “Development matters, being close to family and friends matters…keep working, dedication and be the best at what you do son.”

The native of Apple Valley, California was one of five offensive linemen committed to Alabama as a part of the 2023 recruiting class.

 However, Pulido will now be spending his college days in the PAC-12 for the Wildcats football program.

As for the Tide, they will likely look to add one more offensive lineman to the class.

There is a strong chance that it could be five-star offensive tackle Kadyn Proctor.

The Iowa commit took an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa over the weekend and has been trending toward Alabama ever since.

 I would be surprised if the Iowa native doesn’t flip his commitment to the Tide.

He is set to make his official college decision on Wednesday.
