CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - It's been a newsworthy week for the Crisp County football team.

And on Thursday, one of the team's biggest stars committed to a top program.

Cougar star linebacker Quay Walker is on his way to Alabama.

The four-star recruit made his announcement on the website SEC Country Around 6 p.m.

Walker narrowed his search to five schools in May and didn't wait much longer to announce his plans to play for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.

He is the 18th ranked prospect in Georgia according to 247 Sports and is the Tide's third commit for the Class of 2018.
