Highly-touted Daphne running back T.J Yeldon flipped his commitment from Auburn to Alabama over the weekend. His plans are to enroll in January in order to be a part of spring practice according to al.com.

T.J. will follow current teammate and linebacker Ryan Anderson to the Crimson Tide. Rated as the No. 3 running back and No. 24 overall recruit by Rivals.com, T.J's five stars pushes the Tide's 2012 recruiting class to the second spot behind Texas.

With his 6' 2" 205-pound frame, Yeldon had a stellar senior season carrying the ball 231 times for 2,196 yards and 32 touchdowns. T.J. looks to have all the tools necessary to fit into the Tide's process.
