Alabama football pulled in another signee from the DMV recruiting area by signing offensive lineman, Darrian Dalcourt to the 2019 class.
Alabama football has reaped some important rewards from cultivating connections and prospects from the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia) in recent recruiting classes. This year’s class had four verbal commits from Maryland and the District.
Mike Locksley has played a major role in further expanding the Crimson Tide’s presence in the area. Last year’s big get was 5-Star, Eyabi Anoma. Eyabi helped persuade 2019 prospects, Shane Lee and Darrian Dalcourt. Lee and Dalcourt played for the same school Anoma did, St. Frances Academy.
Fortunately for Alabama football, Mike Locksley’s move from Tuscaloosa to Maryland did not negatively impact Alabama football recruiting. Darrian Dalcourt was one of the multiple Crimson Tide prospects who received offers from Maryland. Like Shane Lee, Dalcourt decided he was choosing a school more than a person.
Darrian Dalcourt is one of the lower rated recruits among the 2019 Crimson Tide Signing Class. Based on the 247Sports Composite, he is the No. 332 player overall in the nation. Alabama football coaches have a much higher opinion of Dalcourt. The rating services rank Darrian as a guard/center combo. The Crimson Tide staff projects him at center, a position he has played for just one high school season.
With Darrian Dalcourt’s inexperience at center and a deep offensive line roster, the young man will have to bide his time in Tuscaloosa. A realistic goal would be reaching the two-deep by his second season.
Besides the Alabama Crimson Tide and Maryland, Darrian Dalcourt had offers from Syracuse, Tennessee, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan and Michigan State.
