Nation’s Top Long Snapper Commits to Alabama
Two weeks after adding the one of the nation's top kickers, the University of Alabama grabbed a commitment from another top specialist.
Fletcher will be well-traveled by the time he reaches Tuscaloosa in 2017. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound snapper grew up in Vancouver, Washington before moving to Georgetown, Texas last summer. After a year there, he is headed to IMG Academy in Florida for his senior season.
He'll be following another West Coast standout at the position in Cole Mazza. The California native has started since his freshman season in 2013 and will complete his career this fall for the Crimson Tide. That will give Fletcher an opportunity to earn a starting position when he steps on campus.
The latest commitment gives Nick Saban the top spot in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings once again.
