According to one Alabama prospect his mind has been made up for a while.

Oxford, Ala., defensive tackle Allan Carson made his pledge known Tuesday night when he announced his intentions to two Tennessee assistant coaches.

“I called Lance Thompson and Chuck Smith,” Carson said. “I didn’t get to tell Coach (Derek)Dooley about my commitment; he is out of town right now. Coach Thompson and Coach Smith were excited.”

“I had my mind made up for Tennessee for a while,” Carson added. “I made the final decision tonight.”

Tennessee was the first to offer the 6-foot-1, 308-pound Scout.com two-star athlete.

“They were the first to offer me, now I have eight offers,” Carson told InsideTennessee.com. “They always made me feel very welcomed on their campus.”

Carson is excited to get the decision out of the way so he can focus on his senior season.

“I love the UT coaching staff a lot,” Carson said. “Now I can focus on my senior season.”

Carson has made three unofficial visits to Rocky Top in the past year.
