Central’s Markail Benton makes his commitment to Alabama official

Central linebacker Markail Benton is joining the Crimson Tide.

Benton made his verbal commitment official on National Signing Day by inking his name with the SEC team.

Benton is one of the top-rated linebackers in the country and the state of Alabama.  He’s made official visits over the last few weeks but says Alabama was the only place for him.

“There’s just something about Alabama that makes me feel so good about them,” Benton said. It feels like family when I’m up at Alabama and I can’t ask for anything else. All the recruitment is over and I’ve officially signed with Alabama.”

Benton was one of fourteen Central High players who signed scholarships.
