Katherine Webb and AJ McCarron started dating while attending the University of Alabama

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Katherine Webb is engaged to former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron.

Webb, 24, and McCarron, 23, announced their engagement on Twitter Saturday.

Webb also posted a picture of the diamond sparkler McCarron had designed for her by Optimum Diamonds.

The young couple celebrated their engagement at Fisher’s in Orange Beach, Ala., with an elaborate cake designed by Couture Cakes.

Webb and McCarron met while attending the University of Alabama. During those years, McCarron became one of the most highly touted quarterbacks and Webb was crowed Miss Alabama. Webb’s fame grew during McCarron’s second BCS National Championship win in 2013 when ESPN analyst Brett Mussberger zeroed in on her appearance.

McCarron will likely be drafted into the NFL during the 2014 draft in June.
