Keilan Robinson, a 5-foot-9, 184-pound rusher out of St. John's College High School in Washington, D.C., announced on Twitter Wednesday evening that he has committed to the Tide.

"If you would've told me as a lil kid playing ball over at Beacon House that I would be in this position, I would not have believed you!" Robinson said in his post which included a video of his workouts and highlights.

Robinson is a four-star prospect ranked as the No. 18 running back in his class by the 247Sports.com Composite Index. He chose Alabama over offers from 23 other schools, including Georgia, Florida State, Michigan and Southern California.
