Five-star defensive back prospect Tony Mitchell committed to Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide in late June and has been putting in work on the recruiting trail since.

On Saturday, Mitchell tweeted out his recruiting pitch to fellow in-state prospect Hunter Osborne. Mitchell’s technique was straight to the point by simply saying, “why not ‘Bama?”.

Current Texas Longhorns commit Johntay Cook responded to Mitchell’s tweet by saying “why not Texas?”. That’s when things got interesting and Mitchell jumped from the proverbial top rope. Mitchell responded in the most Alabama way possible by saying “cause ppl wanna win”.

Cook would reply with “bet on ya self” but Mitchell’s point was made and it’s hard to argue with the facts.

Here is the series of tweets:
