Remember Landon Collins’ mom? She’s a Bama fan, now…


Remember the lady who caused such a stir last season over her son’s commitment to Alabama? April Justin, who famously objected to his spurning of hometown favorite LSU, has had something of a change of heart. Her youngest son is Gerald Willis—a 2014 defensive end prospect who is already drawing the interest from Alabama, Florida, LSU, Oregon and others.

This time, when he puts the hat on to signify where he's going to school, he might want to hope for a better reaction from his mom. Although she caught a lot of flack for what happened, Justin is ready to do it all over again with Willis. And this time, she's pulling for the Crimson Tide.

"It's going to be crazy," Justin said. "I'm not looking forward to it, but I am looking forward to it in a sense, so [Willis] can move on. But I'm hoping that everything works out with him to be on the same team as his brother. I really would love to see them play together.

"That'd be once in a lifetime, like winning the lottery, to see them on the same team. That'd be awesome, but it's where he's going to be happy."

National signing day for 2014 is a long way away. Anything can happen. But if Landon didn’t make momma happy with his decision, maybe Gerald can?
