Cam Newton 'dissed' Alabama to Tide commit
Cam Newton 'dissed' Alabama to a Crimson Tide recruit recently.
The world of college football recruiting is ... interesting. It's always funny when pro players get involved because they're clearly fans of certain schools and not fans of other schools.
Like, for instance, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton who's a big Auburn fan and, naturally, not a big Alabama fan. And Newton apparently took the chance to "diss" Alabama to Crimson Tide commit Mekhi Brown at a 7-on-7 tournament hosted by Newton's foundation.

Newton, like any good alum of a rival school, pointed out that Alabama "ain't where" Brown needs to be.
"(Newton) was just like, Alabama ain't where I need to be," Brown said via 247Sports.com. "He was talking to one of my teammates who had on an Alabama visor. He was talking about how he needed to get an Auburn visor and stuff like that. It was crazy."
Brown pointed out to Newton that he was already committed to Alabama.
"He was like, 'you don't need to worry about that," Brown said. "Come with Auburn."
