The 3-star tackle from Senatobia, Mississippi has decided to take his talents to Tuscaloosa instead of Baton Rouge.

Womack made the switch Sunday afternoon during his official visit to Alabama. According to an interview Matt Womack's father did with al.com, he did not know his son was going to flip during the visit, but did say that he had been thinking about it for awhile.

His father told them that Matt felt it was just "a better fit" in every aspect. He also said that coach Saban, Napier and Cristobal "were high-fiving" and "pumped."

Womack's flip wasn't a huge surprise, especially with George Brown's flip to LSU from Florida, but take it as you will.

The 6-foot-7, 320 pound tackle is a massive player with long arms and a heavy punch. He is a mauler in the run game and will most likely stay at right tackle with Cam Robinson solidifying the left side.

His feet need to get a bit quicker along with his athleticism in general. Clearly he has the frame, so it is just a matter of getting his feet underneath him and finding balance in the pass game.

He will not start immediately, but could definitely be in the second line so he most likely won't redshirt.
