2014 WR Derek Kief uses baby sister to commit to Alabama

Kids these days will announce their commitment to schools in weird ways. Some still use the hat selection in the middle of a crowded high school gym, while others shave the school's emblem into their high-top fade. Some even use baby bulldogs like Isaiah Crowell did.

2014 four-star WR Derek Kief had his choices narrowed down to Kentucky, Ohio State and Alabama. The receiver out of Cincinnati's LaSalle High School committed to Alabama by gathering his family and friends, dressing up his infant sister in crimson and filming the reveal for YouTube. Kief has a website which has kept track of the entire recruitment process, including a post that announced the time and date of his commitment on Twitter. Welcome to the future.

Apparently, kids these days don't need camera crews or "commitment countdowns" on ESPNU. All that they need is a camera and the internet to advertise their intentions. Kief's video already has 37,000 views since Sunday.

The infant has been offered a scholarship by Saban, but Lane Kiffin is also interested. Roll Tide.
