Alabama's Signing Day push got started early as four-star Louisiana defensive back Shyheim Carter announced his decision to play for Nick Saban.

Carter held a ceremony at his school in Kentwood, Louisiana, early on Wednesday morning and picked the Crimson Tide over Ole Miss and Miami. You can watch the ceremony on Periscope here while the video is still available.

The 6'0", 190-pound athlete is rated as a top 100 prospect by nearly every recruiting service and played in the Under Armour All-American game.
