The Alabama Crimson Tide began its close towards National Signing Day by pickup up a commitment from one of the nation's top cornerbacks. 

Four-star Nigel Knott from Mississippi made his announcement through a well-produced video from Bleacher Report, which you can watch above. The 5'11", 175-pound defensive back from Germantown High School was an Under Armour All-American after recording 112 tackles, 16 pass breakups and four interceptions as a junior.

Knott is considered a top 100 prospect in the class of 2016 by every major recruiting service and has already moved Alabama's team ranking up to No. 5 on 247Sports.

If you are wondering what type of player the Crimson Tide will be getting, the answer is a freak athlete. Watch these videos and you'll understand why.
