Cullman's Jayden Sullins runs the ball.

Cullman's Jayden Sullins has reached a decision regarding his football future.

The rising senior running back committed to head coach Ken Niumatalolo and the United States Naval Academy on Saturday following an unofficial visit to campus.

The Division I Midshipmen compete in the American Athletic Conference.

Sullins netted 370 rushing yards, 699 receiving yards and 177 return yards last season. He also scored 11 touchdowns.

"I'm extremely blessed to be committing to Navy," Sullins said. "After a great visit and talking with the running backs coach and head coach, I felt it was a great place for me. It was nerve-racking at first making the decision, but it was a weight lifted off my shoulders. I'm extremely grateful to be a Midshipman. Go Navy, beat Army."

Sullins was also recently selected to participate in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl next January.
