4-star RB to take official visit to Alabama
Four-star running back Markese Stepp (Indianapolis, IN) re-opened his recruitment on Dec. 2 after decommitting from Notre Dame and plans to make an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 12. Stepp is a high school teammate of current Tide commit Emil Ekiyor, which the Alabama coaching staff likes.
"He said they want me to run behind Emil for the next three to four years," Stepp said. "He said they're looking for a big, fast back like myself and that I'd do great in their offense. It's always a plus when you know someone like Emil is going there. The competition fires me up how they bring the best out of you. I feel like you're always getting better every day no matter what."
