Cornerback Tony Mitchell, a five-star prospect ranked No. 15 in the Class of 2023 per the 247Sports composite, committed to play for Alabama late Sunday.

Earlier in the week, the Alabama native whittled down his list to four finalists. He picked the Crimson Tide over Auburn, Georgia and Texas A&M.

Mitchell is listed at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds. He plays for Thompson High School in Alabaster, Ala. He is 247Sports’ second-ranked cornerback in the class.

Alabama previously landed another five-star corner, Jahlil Hurley — the third-ranked player at his position in the class. Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide also have commitments from four four-star players in the class, including quarterback Eli Holstein.
