The Crimson Tide added its sixth commitment in the 2020 class on Tuesday afternoon in 3-star tight end Caden Clark out of Akron (Ohio) Archbishop Hoban. 

The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder chose Alabama over Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia, over several others.

Clark announced his decision on Twitter: 

"First I want to thank God for giving me the ability to play this great game and blessing me with a great family to support me and my decisions. My beautiful mom and great dad have got me to where I'm at today and I couldn't be more thankful for all that they have sacrificed for my brother and I. I also want to thank my head coach Tim Tyrell for always being there for me through it all and because of these people I'm proud to announce my commitment to the University of Alabama." 

Clark is rated the No. 6 tight end and the No. 344 overall player in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Tide quarterbacks coach Dan Enos is Clark's primary recruiter. 

Alabama's 2020 class ranks No. 3 in the nation, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings. 

The Tide's 2019 class has been riding a wave of momentum this spring and summer on the way to holding the top spot in the recruiting rankings standings. Bama's 2020 class has also experienced momentum adding several big-time commitments since March. 

The Tide's class is headlined by the state's No. 1 player in 4-star defensive tackle Jayson Jones out of Calera (Ala.). Jones jumped on board earlier this month. A couple other in-state prospects help makeup the class including 4-star receiver Dazalin Worsham and 4-star inside linebacker Jackson Bratton. The Tide has also turned to Georgia and Florida to land 4-star cornerback Javier Morton and 3-star quarterback Carson Beck, respectively. 

After not signing the nation's No. 1-ranked class for the first time in seven years this past February, Alabama looks in prime position to take back the crown in 2019. And with the way things are trending it appears ready to make a run in 2020 as well with several elite prospects already showing heavy interest in the Tide like 5-star running backs Kendall Milton and Zachary Evans, 5-star defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson, 5-star linebacker Sav'ell Smalls, 5-star edge rusher Chris Braswell and 4-star offensive tackle Tate Ratledge to name a few. 

Like 2019, the state of Alabama is strong in 2020 once again. Along with the aforementioned Jones, Worsham and Bratton, guys like 4-star athlete and Tennessee commit Kristian Story, 4-star quarterback Robby Ashford, 4-star cornerback Malachi Moore, 4-star running back Roydell Williams and 4-star receiver Kris Abrams-Draine call the Yellowhammer State home.
