Cyrus Kouandjio (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha Catholic), the nation's top offensive line recruit - and top-five overall - has committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide. And this time, he signed his national letter of intent.

The mammoth offensive tackle from Maryland ended a crazy and confusing three-day odyssey by committing to Alabama on Saturday.

Beginning with an uneasy pledging to Auburn followed by a lot of second-guessing, the 6’7”, 325-pound 5-star recruit has now shut down all the talk. Kouandjio finally faxed a national letter of intent, sealing the deal and adding to what was already a superior recruiting haul (No. 1, according to forNick Saban and Alabama.

On Wednesday, during ESPNU's coverage of national signing day, Kouandjio announced that he would attend Auburn, but did not send his letter of intent to the Tigers. His committment to Auburn came as one of the biggest suprises of national signing day, but immediately crumbled later that afternoon upon word of Cyrus' wavering.

Alabama's No. 2-rated class now has 25 signings including 11 from the ESPNU 150.
