Ouachita Parish High receiver Cameron Sims picked two-time defending national champion Alabama over Southern on Saturday.

The 6-foot-4 210-pound star had his options down to Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Southern, the only FCS school on his list.

Sims, in front of a nationwide audience, donned an Alabama cap and gave a “roll tide.”

A member of Rivals’ Top 250 prospects, Sims’ pledge gives the Crimson Tide its 19th commitment of the 2014 class.
