"When I went on my visit, it was just about a family atmosphere," Tabor said. "They play for each other, and I believe I can provide a spark right away."
With the addition of Tabor, Arizona now has 28 commitments, including five ranked in the ESPN 300. Tabor is the team's highest-rated commit.
No. 22 OVERALL RECOMMITS TO ALABAMA: Hours after Alabama picked up the commitment from Brown, No. 22 Laurence Jones (Monroe, La./Neville) announced he again will be a part of the Crimson Tide's class.
"I just talked to my mom about it," Jones said. "I really appreciate the way Ole Miss tried to keep recruiting me, and I really appreciate the coaching staff from Ole Miss. They were like the only school I was still talking to after I decommitted from Alabama, but I just felt more at home at Alabama."
Jones, the No. 2 safety, informed the staff this week that he likely was headed back to the Crimson Tide.
"I told them there was going to be a great chance I was going to come back, but I wasn't for sure I was going to come back. They told me to take my time, go wherever I'm happy at, wished me the best of luck wherever I ended up, but they told me they hoped I came back," Jones said.
Jones first committed to Nick Saban and his staff Dec. 2, but backed off his verbal commitment Dec. 18.
NO. 3-RANKED SAFETY TO LSU: Jamal Adams (Lewisville, Texas/Hebron), the No. 3-ranked safety in the ESPN 300 and the 23rd player overall, committed to LSU over Florida and Texas A&M during the second quarter.
The 6-foot, 204-pound Adams, a four-star prospect, said his comfort level with the Tigers was what ultimately led to his decision.
"I just felt more comfortable there," Adams said. "The opportunity at LSU is there for me. I'm just ready to go win some national championships."
As a senior, Adams had 75 tackles on defense and also totaled more than 1,000 all-purpose yards for Hebron.
MOTHER AGAIN DISAPPOINTED BY SON'S CHOICE: Two years after she publicly disapproved of older son Landon Collins choosing Alabama over LSU, April Justin was again disappointed as younger son Gerald Willis III (New Orleans/Edna Karr) chose Florida over the Tigers.
It was much-needed good news for the Gators, who earlier in the week lost a commitment from No. 20 recruit Dalvin Cook
Willis III, the No. 3-ranked defensive tackle and the No. 29 player overall, chose the Gators over LSU and Alabama.
"I will take my talents to Gainesville, Fla.," Willis said when he announced his commitment. "Go Gators."
His mom didn't appear as upset as she did two years ago but still didn't seem thrilled.
"It is what it is," Justin said. "Florida Gators, that's where we'll be. LSU is still No. 1."
The Gators now have 19 commitments, including 11 ranked in the ESPN 300.
SEMINOLES LAND NO. 7 WR: Travis Rudolph (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) verbally committed to Florida State in the second quarter. The No. 61 player in the ESPN 300 surprised many and committed to the Seminoles over Alabama, which he had named his leader earlier in the week.
