Gators 2016 RB Commit Lamical Perine Talks Alabama Offer, Visit

Florida Gators 2016 RB commit Lamical Perine was visited by Alabama Crimson Tide running backs coach Burton Burns last week in Theodore (AL), and Perine came away pleased with the meeting.

“Everything went good we just had a good little conversation,” Perine said. “He just kept being honest with me. He just came by and told me about the depth chart and said I could come in and contribute early.”

Alabama offered Perine back in November and turned the heat up on a potential flip before the dead period. However, things don't look rosy quite yet. In fact, Perine remains iffy on the Tide in spite of seeing what a Tide running back can do in Nick Saban's system during Derrick Henry's 2015 Heisman campaign.

“I don’t really look at that,” Perine said. “It all comes down to if I can get playing time. That’s a big thing I’m going to college for – education and playing time.”

Ranked as the #29 running back in the country by 247Sports, Perine remains a hard commit to Florida. However, he did leave the door slightly ajar with a bit of vague wording.

“I’m going to stick with Florida right now,” he told reporters.
