According to’s Andrew Bone, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team now has its seventh commitment for the Class of 2012.

Kenyan Drake, a star running back at Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, chose the Tide over Georgia, Georgia Tech, Purdue and Tennessee, among others.

Bone—who also writes a weekly recruiting column for The Tuscaloosa News—reports the 6’0”, 184-pounder had 1,000 rushing yards and over 500 yards receiving last season.

Drake joins “watch-list” defensive tackle Dakota Ball of Pepperell High School in Lindale as Alabama commitments who hail from the Peach State.
