HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

One of Huntsville's own came home Sunday to meet and greet friends, family, and Crimson Tide fans. 

Reggie Ragland signed autographs at Furniture Factory Bar and Grill. He brought along his former Alabama teammate Jarran Reed as well.

Ragland actually was scheduled to leave the signing and hop on a plane and head to Los Angeles to meet with the Rams as the NFL Draft is right around the corner April 28.

For Reggie, It's always great to come back home.
 
"As a kid, I dreamed about it," Ragland said Sunday. "The opportunities I've gotten, I've fulfilled them.”

He added, “As a kid I always thought that I would be here. I'm thankful and blessed that I've been in a position to do what I'm doing now. Thanks to my mom and my dad, and the people that have helped me.”

Ragland is projected as a first round draft pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Ragland and his family will head to Chicago to attend the draft night festivities.
