Full Ride@BR_FullRideB/R VideoMay 22, 2012

Five-star defensive end recruit Jonathan Allen has said that he is joining Alabama’s monster 2013 class. 

Allen’s pledge gives Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide their 14th 2013 verbal commitment, good enough to be ranked as the No. 2 class in the nation behind Michigan.

The star pass-rusher racked up 102 tackles and 15 sacks as a junior at Stone Bride High School in Ashburn, Virginia. Allen chose Alabama over offers from powers USC, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Michigan.

How will Allen fit in with Saban’s Crimson Tide? Watch as Full Ride has 247Sports.com’s National Scouting Director J.C. Shurburtt break down just how Saban will utilize Allen’s edge-rush skills in Tuscaloosa.
