Crimson Tide gets 12th verbal committment for 2013

Alabama pulled off a recruiting coup on Wednesday when one of the nation's top pro-style prep quarterbacks verbally committed to the Crimson Tide.

Cooper Bateman of Cottonwood HS in Salt Lake City, Utah selected 'Bama over what has been described as over 50 Division I scholarship offers.

The 6-3, 190 pound Bateman is ranked in the national top ten among pro-style quarterbacks after a junior season that saw him throw for 2,484 yards and 26 touchdowns with only seven interceptions.

Bateman's announcement gives Alabama 12 verbal commitments for the 2013 recruiting class.
