Alabama picks up commitment from OL J.C. Hassenauer

Posted: Updated:

Alabama football picked up a commitment from offensive lineman J.C. Hassenauer.

Hassenauer didn't waste time accepting Alabama's scholarship offer. He attended the Tide's OL/DL camp last weekend. Coach Nick Saban offered him a scholarship on Saturday and Hassenauer accepted a little more than 48 hours later.

"Hassenauer is a true offensive center prospect, which adds value in college coaches' eyes," Rivals.com recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt said. "In his pass-pro he is able to punch, extend and move his feet to stay in front of the defender while never lunging and losing his balance."

The three-star prospect from Woodbury, MN is the Tide's 14th commitment for the class of 2014. Hassenauer also had offers from Minnesota and Vanderbilt.
