2012 Mobile star experiences SEC atmosphere

Mobile (AL) Faith Academy star Chris Casher has shown himself to be one of the most versatile big men in the state for the Class of 2012, capable of playing on either side of the line of scrimmage. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound athlete holds early offers from Georgia, Florida State, Auburn and Alabama and this weekend was in Tuscaloosa to check out the Tide's big win over the Florida Gators.

"This was one of the first times I have had to really get to hang out and get to know some of the other in-state guys in my class," said Casher. "It was the first time I had met Jameis Winston. He was a real good dude. He seemed excited to be at Alabama. He has a lot of good things to say about the program. I also hung out with Kwon Alexander and Reggie Ragland. They have been to Alabama a lot more than me, and we really just talked about what we thought of the game and program."

"The game was really loud. I have heard loud crowds before, but nothing like that. Even in the fourth quarter when it was a blowout it stayed pretty loud."

"I talked to Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt before and after the game. He just asked me how my season was going. We are struggling because we are young, but I am having a pretty good year. I had six tackles and a sack last Friday. Alabama likes me at Jack linebacker."

Casher said that despite some claims that he's close to choosing one particular school, he's still very much undecided and won't likely make a decision until after he's had a chance to visit more schools.

"I have heard some of the rumors recently that I am leaning towards committing to Florida State soon, but I don't know where that came from. I like FSU. My dad is a big fan, and I had fun on my last visit. Coach (Dameyune) Craig and I are starting to really get along, and he is one of my favorite coaches I talk to. But I also like Alabama and Auburn a lot too. I want to visit a lot more schools before I start narrowing things down and making decisions."
