Ionata Commits The Alabama
Jul 28, 2023·By David Green
Joseph Ionata, our No. 9 prospect on Pinellas Top 25, has firmly committed to joining the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. His recent camp visit to Tuscaloosa left a lasting impression on him as the staff extended an offer, and he has decided to join their team without hesitation. As a 3-Star IOL whose recruitment has been on the rise over the past few months, Ionata's decision is a testament to his dedication and hard-work. With his commitment made, he can now focus on his senior year with determination to continue his growth and development for his future success.
“I know coming to Alabama means playing for the Natty, and I am ready!”
What are the Crimson Tide Getting in Ionata?
Ionata is a highly versatile player, standing at 6'5" and weighing 295 pounds. He excels at center and tackle positions, but can also effectively play as a guard if required. His strength, balance and quick feet enable him to move laterally with ease. He can sink his hips and powerfully engage with defenders, bringing a fierce attitude to the line of scrimmage.
Alabama's acquisition of Ionata has elevated their rankings to No.11, with a high likelihood of finishing in the top 5 with further recruiting efforts by Saban and his team.
Ionata chose Alabama over several other prominent schools such as Miami, Florida, FSU, Georgia, UCF, and Georgia Tech.
