Brandon Greene ends recruiting early with commitment to Alabama

"College football prospects have all sorts of different attitudes toward recruiting. Brandon Greene is one of those who pretty much knew what he wanted and wasn’t all that interested in the courtship part of the recruiting game.

Well, now he’s got what he wanted.

The 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive tackle from Cedar Grove committed to Alabama over the weekend. He did it without a lot of pomp and circumstance and without a whole bunch of other offers. Before he committed to the Crimson Tide while on an unofficial visit this past Saturday, Greene’s other scholarship opportunities were from Central Florida, Louisville, Ole Miss."

Chris Black WR, 2012.  He just had a visit to Tuscaloosa.
(http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/74/743757m.jpg)
He has the hair of a great receiver.

Scout, "Junior Chris Black was named First Team All-First Coast WR by Florida Times-Union. He finished his junior season with 990 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. He says he can bench 250-pounds and claims a 36-inch vertical jump.

Black hopes to major in sports medicine or psychical therapy and reports a 2.9 core GPA. He is taking the SAT for the first time in April.

Black: “I can make plays. I run creative routes and am very elusive after the catch. I’m a good deep threat too and I can turn a short 10-yard pass into something much more.

'I want to get stronger. And I’m still working on my route-running and footwork'.”

There aren't many 5-star recruits this early.  Most services keep evaluating them and add stars as necessary.

Here are the top ones (5 stars) on 247 Sports: LINK (http://footballrecruiting.247sports.com/Article/247Sports-releases-the-first-five-star-prospects-of-2012-15388)

Dorial Green-Beckham is believed to be Julio-comparable.  He's a certainty to be a star player.  Alabama NEEDS him and WANTS him.  So does everyone else.

Alabama just offered 3-star (Scout) WR D'Vario Montgomery. LINK (http://alabama.scout.com/a.z?s=14&p=8&c=1&nid=5069626)

Rivals has him a 4-star. LINK (http://rivals.yahoo.com/footballrecruiting/football/recruiting/player-D%27Vario-Montgomery-115466)

From Winter Park, FL.  This kid is big and fast (6'3" and 211).  Just like me, only less weight. :D

"I am most familiar and comfortable with Oklahoma State right now. I have been around that program so long. But I will say that it is a growing program and they are so close to getting to that next level. Coach [Mike] Gundy has done a great job. They improve each year, and I am keeping a close eye on them.

"Alabama is a proven school with a great coach like Nick Saban. He knows what he's doing. I also know that that is a place that will get you ready for the next level."

Alphonse Taylor
Defensive tackle (6'6" and 330 lbs), Mobile (Davidson H.S.).

This 2012 prospect is big and strong.  He'll play defensive tackle for some lucky school.  Alphonse said he enjoyed his March 5 visit to Alabama (his early favorite), but so far Alabama hasn't made an offer.

The 38-10 win over Florida might be even bigger than it first appeared.  Florida had assembled a large number of 2012 and 2013 recruits for the game, and they saw Alabama showcase itself, not the intended UF show.

http://www.gatorcountry.com/football_recruiting/article/weekend_visitor_preview_florida_vs_alabama/

Here's the way it was billed pregame:
Quote
It's Florida vs. Alabama. In prime-time. On Saturday night. Naturally, this is going to be a game where prospects from all over the state of Florida (and the rest of the Southeast for that matter) are going to show up in droves to attend. The #12-ranked Gators head into the weekend hoping to knock off #2-ranked Alabama. But they're also hoping use the SEC battle as a showcase game to recruits as to why they should attend the University of Florida in the future. Much like the Florida State-Oklahoma game was two weeks ago in Tallahassee, this is the big-ticket game for a vast number of recruits on Saturday.

(http://images.maxpreps.com/site_images/editorial/article/2/6/6/266338d1-bdee-e011-beac-002655e6c45a/d50d10a1-1def-e011-beac-002655e6c45a_original.jpg)

Now a powerful 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, Sanders runs 40 yards in an outstanding 4.31 seconds and probably will finish his career with most of the Heritage Hall rushing records.

Sanders is ranked as the No. 2 running back and No. 10 overall player in the nation by CBS/MaxPreps recruiting analyst Tom Lemming.

Lemming says that Sanders "Shows remarkable balance, vision and speed, plus the ability to break tackles. As competitive and confident as they come, he can turn a game around with one play. He accelerates as quick or quicker than any other back in the country."

The highly sought Sanders, who carries a 3.39 GPA, has narrowed his college list to Alabama, Florida State, Stanford and LSU. Sanders says his decision will rest on "mainly just the environment and academics." He is expected to announce his college choice at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 7, 2012, at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

My grandson plays for American Christian here in T-town and they have a pretty good team in the 2A division, ranked 4th. I received a video today of the QB Grammer and their RB Davis, these two should do well at the next level. Grammer has already committed to Houston and I'm not sure that Davis has committed.

There are at least 6 on this team that will play at the next level with some going to the Ivy League, their ACT scores were 30,31,and 32. Just wanted to share.

Armstead, one of the nation's premier lineman and the top-ranked player in the West in the ESPNU 150, said he'll still consider the Trojans but is now wide open to other colleges.

Allen, which is trying to win its sixth straight district title before taking aim at the Class 5A Division I state crown, has a more balanced offense with Alabama-bound quarterback Alec Morris and highly touted running back Jonathan Williams. Morris has passed for 1,878 yards and 25 touchdowns on the season compared to just one interception.

Pretty darn good stats.

Top QB Gunner Kiel reopens his recruitment

SHELBYVILLE, Ind. -- In news that was shocking only with regards to its timing, Columbus (Ind.) quarterback Gunner Kiel decommitted from Indiana and opened up his recruitment Friday.

"To be honest I'm just reevaluating my decision," Kiel said. "I just want to go out and see other places and see if IU is the right place."

Ranked as the top quarterback in the class of 2012 and number two overall in the country by Maxpreps, Kiel committed to the Hoosiers in late July over national powers such as Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan and USC.

"I think I made the right decision," he said of his original pledge. "Things happen. I thought hard about it but decided to go out and reevaluate it."

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder told new Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson Thursday night, two days after he was officially selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"I just called him and told him I was re-evaluating my decision and will go out and visit some more schools," Kiel said.

Kurt Freitag, Georgia tight end, commits to Alabama.  Woooooooot.

Quote
Freitag largely fits the mold of most Alabama tight ends in recent years under Nick Saban. At 6'4 and roughly 240 pounds, he has the size to be a legitimate threat as both a blocker and a receiver in the passing game, and with that frame he at least has the raw size needed to be an early contributor.

Many reports have had Freitag as a silent commitment the past several weeks, and that would be no real surprise. Having fellow Alabama commitment Dillon Lee coming out of the same high school probably only helped our chances with this one and by pledging to the Tide Freitag becomes the eighth commitment of the 2012 recruiting class out of the Peach State.

I agree.  He was considered a long shot for Alabama earlier, but now we seem to lead.

I haven't heard anything about other recruits since Saturday's game.

What are Alabama's chances of landing OL Laremy Tunsil?

Did you see the Alabama thrashing of Michigan on Saturday night? I did and I've come to the realization the success of Nick Saban can help factor into anything ranging from his three national championships, superior game day preparation, and recruiting.

Quote
The performance moved Henry ahead of Emmit Smith on the career rushing yard list in the state of Florida and put him within one game of tying the national record for the most consecutive 100-yard rushing games (39 games).

Henry is scheduled to take his official visit to Alabama on Saturday for the Crimson Tide's home game against Florida Atlantic. He has publicly named the Tide the current leader for his signature and plans to make a decision about his college choice before the end of the month.

Recruiting article "Team Rankings: Mapping the path to No. 1".

http://alabama.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1464225

Quote
1. ALABAMA
 Current class rank: No. 3
Current point total: 2,721
Spots remaining: Up to six
Breakdown: Dee Liner, Vonn Bell and Eddie Jackson can be conservatively considered to have solid chances to end up in Tuscaloosa. If all three sign with Alabama, the Tide would finish with 2,947 points. Even if Alabama loses Bell to Ohio State or Tennessee, the Tide have proven to show a lot of muscle down the stretch. They are soundly in the game for Alvin Kamara. A Liner-Kamara combo would give Alabama 2,928 points -- right at last year's mark. A quartet of five-stars, Laremy Tunsil, Eddie Vanderdoes, Montravius Adams and Reuben Foster are all long shots, but Nick Saban has closed hard on five-star prospects before.
Title shot: Alabama has a better shot than any school to end at No. 1. If the Tide don't lose anyone, get who they are supposed to get and pull one other big-name surprise, this race is over. Even the most conservative scenarios seem to place Alabama in a near-unbeatable position.

Aside from having the Tide ranked #1, I feel RIVALS is the most accurate of the services followed by ESPN, then SCOUT. Big 12 folks will say SCOUT is best. BTW, can you imagine how much BS Ed Orgeron and Kiffen are feeding to Eddie Vanderous. He probably has been told Bama does not allow freshmen to play and he will be gauranteed a starting position at USC.  ???

The Daily Bama Blog article titled "Some Tide recruiting bits and pieces".

Quote
Alabama has at least four spots to fill in its 2013 recruiting class, and at the moment, it’s too murky to predict exactly who the Crimson Tide will pull in by national signing day.

However, we’re willing to guess these three appear decent bets to land in Tuscaloosa and Alabama would be glad to have them: Wide receiver Eddie Jackson, 6-foot-0, 180 pounds, Boyd Anderson High in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.; running back Alvin Kamara, 5-10, 190, Norcross (Ga.) High; defensive lineman Dee Liner, 6-4, 295, Muscle Shoals.

Other possible commitments include defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes of Placer High in Auburn, Calif., linebacker Reuben Foster of Auburn High, offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil of Columbia High in Lake City, Fla., and defensive lineman Jarran Reed of East Mississippi Community College. There are others, but those are four who are gaining plenty of attention.

Well the excitement of recruiting will really intensify the next seven days and Bama has gotten off to a good start with Eddie Jackson commiting this morning. I think he is a good pickup for Bama in that he can do so many things, pass receiving, kick returns, defense, etc.. I don't know the status of Dee Hart since his latest injury, but Jackson might be of help on special teams.

The Rueben Foster saga appears it's ugly head again as news leaked out last night about Foster leaving Auburn on his official visit and coming to T-town. After what Foster did to the Bama program nationally when he decomitted from them earlier, you have to wonder if this is another scheme to try and tarnish the Crimson Tide again on a national level.

The story involved with the reason for his leaving Auburn seems a little farfetched to me but again we are talking about Auburn and the conduct of their players in the past. This might have happened and this isn't just another publicity ploy by Foster trying to get his name on the headlines of the sports world again. The idea of Foster to commit on Monday and the NSD is on Wednesday sure leaves a time frame for another decommit by Foster on NSD to get that media attention that he seems to love so much.

NSD 2013: Who Is Left On Alabama's Recruiting Board (Article by RollBamaRoll)

Quote
National Signing Day is Wednesday, February 6, 2013 and everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation as to whether the Bama Fax Girl will be back!

After that major development is settled, it comes down to counting up the faxes that arrive on campus. At this point, 22 young men have given their verbal commitment to attend the University of Alabama. The exact total that Coach Nick Saban can sign is unknown at this time due to Brandon Hill's possible back-counting to 2012 and Bradley Bozeman taking a greyshirt to count towards the 2014 class. More greyshirts are possible as well.

Crazy things happen on NSD, but we should expect a pretty uneventful one as far as guys possibly flipping away from Alabama (mostly because I don't think there will be any). Instead let's focus on who may fill the last few openings and who might flip to the Tide. From the list below, it is pretty evident defensive line is a priority, followed by one O-lineman and maybe one more defensive back. Also, there is one RB that they might take and a certain 5-star that you may have heard of.

I think you are right. The only problem......is there room for them all? With the Foster commitment, I believe that makes 22 so far. If A'Shawn Robinson is truly going to commit, that will make 23. All talking heads say Liner is solid to Bama so he would be 24 and if Kamara is truly a Bama lean, then that's 25, the limit. If Vanderdoes, M. Adams, Connor and Jarran Reed commit, not to mention long shots V. Bell and Nkemdiche, where do you put them or who do you grey shirt or cut loose?

It's a great problem to have, but has got to be giving our beloved head coach some gray hairs.

I think the grey shirt route will be the escape route. I also feel there are some on the team that hasn't progressed to become competitive for a position (injury or lack of skills) that might go work on their studies and give up football.

You can bet that the coaches are burning some time working on the numbers game though, I don't see them letting highly skilled players get away at this point and time. If CNS and staff were to pull off something to land these players, you can bet there will be another new rule imposed for next year. ;)

Looks like LSU stands to gain the most, or lose the most, depending on how you look at it. They've got a lot of in state talent to either haul in, or run off.

Like Alabama, Georgia is pitching Evans on the idea of playing as an outside linebacker specializing in rushing the passer, an idea that Evans' father says appeals to the young star.

"Georgia likes him as a Jack linebacker similar to Jarvis Jones and they see him contributing very quickly in their program," Alan said. "I think Rashaan is comfortable with that kind of role because it utilizes the skills he has developed as a defensive end in high school."

Elizabethtown (Ky.) John Hardin defensive tackle Matt Elam looked on Saturday as Alabama beat his other favorite, Kentucky, 48-7 at Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday. While he was there as a guest of the Wildcats, Elam said he got as much out of watching the Tide and envisioning where he'd fit in its defense than he did from watching Kentucky, with whom he's well familiar.

Alabama has a strong chance of landing the 6-foot-6, 350-pounder, who could be Alabama's best nose tackle commit since Terrence Cody. If the lure of staying close to home wins Elam over in the end, however, the Tide also is still working on Brighton (Tenn.) DT Charles Mosley, who is rather mountainous himself at 6-5, 345...

"The atmosphere was just electric," said Evans' father Alan Evans. "Rashaan had a great time and it was great seeing the campus but just being there in that stadium was a highlight. It felt special to be there."

Evans, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound star who could project at linebacker, defensive end or safety at the college level, remains split between his top four schools, with Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and UCLA all remaining equal in the race for his signature. Evans' father said the Tide's continued success this season has confirmed everything the Evans family has liked about Alabama from early on.

"At Alabama, you know you're going to be developed properly," Alan said. "You're going to receive the coaching and the training you need to give you the best possible chance of getting to the NFL. They've proven that year after year. There's a lot of competition at Alabama for sure but like I always discuss with Rashaan, if you're going to be the best you can't be afraid of competition. Competing is how you become better."

What Alabama needs: Nick Saban has begun showing an interest in recruiting smaller, quicker players at linebacker capable of making plays in coverage, due in large part to the increase in popularity of spread formations. Reuben Foster and Tim Williams both fit that mold last year and Alabama could be looking for similarly versatile linebacker prospects going forward.

"I have to weigh my options," Moton said in a text message. "I haven't seen Alabama, Ole Miss or Florida State, so I'm taking my time. I haven't talked to coach [Dan] Mullen yet, either. But Mississippi State is one of my favorites."

We currently have 21 commits with 2 JUCO players already singed for 23. We do not have much room left. Talking heads are saying this could be CNS best signing class at Alabama.

I think we will get at least two of the three. I believe CNS knows where he stands with these guys. As long as CNS is our coach there is no need to worry about recruiting.

I agree and probably the last few possibilities that committed elsewhere were maybe not the hot priorities we thought they were in Saban's mind. I am curious, though, as to why Hootie Jones decomitted.

I wondered about this kid when i looked at the list last week. Hes a bit small for SEC play, unless he was moved to SS, and we have some higher rated players coming in there, too. The kid from SC is going to be a great player, imo, just watching his film. Look at the LBs we have and the size. This class coming in is outrageous! the under armour all-american game showed some great talent coming to Bama. It was interesting that zero were committed to UGA, and i think 2 were committed to LSU. Bama was represented all over the field and got a HUGE pickup with Brown. That kid looks like Barron, but moves like Julio, and is a high-character leader like Clark. Very, very good class coming in.
I wish this kid good luck at UCLA, for sure.

The "skinny" on where the uncommitted go on NSD, from ESPN Campus Union".

http://college-football.si.com/2014/02/03/national-signing-day-uncommitted-recruits/

Quote
Rashaan Evans, LB, Auburn High (Auburn, Ala.)
Rivals.com rank: No. 1 outside linebacker, No. 14 overall

The skinny: Evans canceled his planned trip for UCLA over the weekend after visiting his other two finalists, Alabama and Auburn, the two previous weeks. Tigers coach Gus Malzahn reportedly lined up Davis in formation with linebacker commits De’Shaun Davis and Tre Watson. Evans called it an “eye-opening” moment, telling AL.com, “[Malzahn] was like, this could be one of the best linebacker corps that have come through Auburn in recruiting history.” The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder has a 38-inch vertical leap and was clocked at 4.51 in the 40-yard dash, according to Rivals.com. The Tigers are the perceived favorite, though many observers insist the Crimson Tide shouldn’t be written off. Malzahn and Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart reportedly visited Evans’ house on Saturday.

Interesting article, though poorly written. The writer obviuosly meant Evans lined up with Davis and Watson.

I don't hold out much hope for him or D. Mama, but we shall see.  :popcorn2:

Thanks.

They extend many offers every year, but of course only a certain percentage accept. I'm guessing they calculate that only about 10-25 percent will accept. I would also think that out of that 100, their efforts are only concentrated on a select few, with others at that position as 2nd or 3rd choices if they don't land their first or 2nd choice.

Keith Mixon, who is ranked No. 11 on AL.com's A-List, has seen the Internet speculation and message board rumors that an Alabama offer could be coming his way. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound athlete heard rumors that if Alabama misses on a wide receiver committed to Georgia -- likely Terry Godwin -- that he could be next in line to get a scholarship offer.

He's also seen the message board speculation that if he gets an Alabama offer, he'll flip his commitment to the Crimson Tide. He can't control what fans will post anonymously on the Internet, though he hates the idea of Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen thinking he could de-commit in the near future.

He's insistent that he's happy with the Bulldogs and has no intention of changing his decision, but he wants that Alabama offer. He grew up as an Alabama fan and landing an offer from the in-state SEC power has long been a goal of his.

"I've heard a lot of people say I'm too small to go to Alabama, or too slow," Mixon says. "I just want to prove people wrong."

McPherson said he anticipates Jefferson fitting in as a JACK linebacker if he chose Alabama. He's ranked as the No. 2 strong side defensive end in the country.

His commitment will likely not be known until National Signing Day.

"I think he's still up in the air," McPherson said. "I think he's narrowed it down to ... he took a visit to Alabama, he took a visit to Ole miss, he may take one to Georgia, not sure (unofficial visit). He's still wide open right now and still up in the air. I think he's going to keep it that way until the first week in February." ....

Payne, the top uncommitted player in Alabama, is primarily considering Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State, though he recently said he'll likely stay in-state. His teammate Keith Mixon, who is committed to Mississippi State, will join him.

Mixon isn't the only player committed elsewhere that'll be in Tuscaloosa. Auburn commits Jalen Harris (St. James School) and Darrell Williams (Hoover) are both expected to be there.

Really I don't have an opinion.  I remember Tony Dorsett as a RB for the Cowboys, wearing full pads and a helmet.  I was a teenager then, playing football myself.  As a RB, I watched RBs for their running style, their moves, feet, recognition, etc.  I didn't pay attention to whether they would win a beauty contest.   :lol2:

Maybe.  But he also has a tough decision.  It appears he wants to play at Alabama, but Cam Robinson has a year left, so Little would have to play behind him (at best).  He could compete for the other tackle spot, but that doesn't seem to be his interest.  If he signs with Ole Miss he could play right away. 

Like many of these 5-star linemen, he expects to be in the NFL within 4 years.

The previous article the journalist wrote on Mr Little, Could Bama or Auburn get No2 recruit, inconsistently says Little will commit on Friday but then says he is considering Ole Miss and plans to visit Ole Miss in January.  That made no sense.  Clearly he did not plan to commit on Friday if he plans to visit Ole Miss in January.  I'm thinking the kid, at one time, might have said something like, "I'd like to commit on my birthday," and some journalist blew it out of proportion.  Or maybe the journalist is just a complete idiot.

Greg Little, a five-star offensive tackle from Allen, Texas, will make his commitment. Little has made official visits to Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Georgia and is expected to make one to Ole Miss in January. He'll likely pick from one of those five schools.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Alabama commit Deonte Brown is firmly cemented with the Crimson Tide, so he has turned his attention to recruiting a couple of 5-star prospects.

Brown, the nation’s No. 7 offensive guard, said he is working hard on the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker Lyndell Wilson and the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker Ben Davis. Brown says Alabama’s chances of landing both look promising.

“Probably very high,” Brown told SEC Country. “We have a lot to offer them. We are Alabama.”

The link below is to Bama Online line 2018 recruiting targets. We currently have 16 commitments. They are noted with the Script A in the far right column. We are still after some of the bigger fish. The Under Armor All-Star game is 1/4/18 and some of the nations best recruits announce live on TV during the game. Do not get hung up on only signing less than 20 during the early signing period. I think we end up Top 3 again this year.

How are coaches expected to recruit and prepare for national championship playoffs? 

I suppose all that can be accomplished in an early signing period is to shore up those recruits who have been on-board since day one so that the coaches can focus on the rest of the recruiting targets after the playoffs.

Not sure what I think of all this.   :-\

But I do believe that Bama will end up with another great class when it is all over.   ;)

Nick Saban’s opinion of early signing period hasn’t wavered: He still hates it

Quote
Nick Saban looked a little weary Friday evening, but it wasn’t because the University of Alabama football team had just held its first postseason practice in preparation for the College Football Playoff.

You think your schedule is a little chaotic now?

In addition to starting to get his team ready for the rematch with the opponent it faced in the last two national title games, he is dealing with coaching issues, new players already arriving and, of course, the new early signing period.

Alabama had scores of prospects at practice Friday, and it is a huge weekend in terms of recruiting.

Nick Saban’s opinion of early signing period hasn’t wavered: He still hates it

Quote
Nick Saban looked a little weary Friday evening, but it wasn’t because the University of Alabama football team had just held its first postseason practice in preparation for the College Football Playoff.

You think your schedule is a little chaotic now?

In addition to starting to get his team ready for the rematch with the opponent it faced in the last two national title games, he is dealing with coaching issues, new players already arriving and, of course, the new early signing period.

Alabama started off Wednesday’s Early Signing Period with a bang!

DT Christian Barmore (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) pulled the trigger for the Tide in a message from his Twitter account. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound prospect chose the Tide over numerous other schools, including Georgia, Miami and Tennessee.

Barmore is rated a 4-star and ranked as the nation’s No. 17 DT and the state of Pennsylvania’s No. 6 overall player, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

-- Alabama currently has the No. 5 class in the country, according to 247Sports.com. It would take something of a miracle to overtake top-ranked Georgia. That would end the Crimson Tide's streak of seven straight No. 1 recruiting classes dating back to 2011.

-- The Tide signed 15 players in the early signing period. Saban on Dec. 20 said they can only take 23 in this class.

-- It was a big recruiting weekend for Alabama for the national championship celebration. A few of the top uncommitted players in the nation were spotted at Bryant-Denny Stadium including Patrick Surtain Jr. (five-star CB), his high school teammate Tyson Campbell (five-star CB), and Nicolas Petit-Frere (five-star OL).

A one-time Florida commit, Jacob Copeland is coming off a visit to Texas A&M. His trip to Alabama will be an interesting one, as the Tide are already considered the ever-so-slight favorite to land the four-star receiver. The weekend will be about erasing doubt from Copeland and making a lasting impression that will linger beyond his scheduled visit to Florida on Feb. 2. The Gators being gifted Copeland’s final visit shouldn’t be dismissed as insignificant, and it makes Nick Saban’s weekend task more difficult.

He visits this weekend.  4-star WR

There has been so much talk for such a long time that Patrick Surtain was leaning toward LSU, with its defensive back tradition in Baton Rouge and so many other factors playing in the Tigers’ favor. But this one is much closer than people think, and Alabama is not only a serious contender, it could be the team to beat after his visit to Tuscaloosa this past weekend. If the five-star cornerback picks Alabama, it would be another huge coup as the Crimson Tide continue to dominate college football. But if LSU can wrap up Surtain, then the Tigers have another potential superstar at cornerback and coach Ed Orgeron would notch a recruiting win over Nick Saban.

A late visit to Auburn could put the Tigers within striking distance, but this seems to be a two-team race between national powerhouses Clemson and Alabama. Clemson has been the favorite for a long while, and the five-star receiver took his official visit there during the season. The Tigers’ ability to crank out top-end wide receivers almost every year - plus a loaded quarterback group - can only help Clemson’s chances. But Alabama rarely loses the top-rated, in-state prospect (the last time it happened was 2012 when Jameis Winston
picked Florida State) so the Crimson Tide could never be counted out. On top of that, Ross had a great visit to Tuscaloosa this past weekend so Alabama is right there, even if Clemson has been the longtime front-runner.

"No surprise regarding his decommitment from Alabama on Sunday. I spoke with Gant on Sunday afternoon after he visited Alabama for A-Day. He said he did not speak to any Alabama coaches during the visit. Imagine how it may have been for him to take recent visits to Florida, Florida State and Miami- these schools trying hard to flip him. They spend as much time as possible with him. Then he goes to Alabama and doesn't speak to a single coach. Gant never spoke with Nick Saban regarding his decision in December. He committed only to former DBs coach Derrick Ansley. While he may rank high, he was not considered one of Alabama's top safety targets. Alabama does not plan to recruit Gant."

Look for Bama to pick up another top 100 commitment this evening! 

Kevin Harris - 4* WDE out of Grayson HS (Loganville, GA) - is announcing his commitment along with 3 of his teammates. He's the 6th ranked WDE and 86th ranked overall player.

He was temporarily swayed towards the Hurricanes after taking an official visit to Miami during our A-Day game, but we got him back on campus immediately on that Monday and made back up the ground we'd lost.  In the last day or two, all signs have pointed to BAMA!  It's good to steal one from Kirby!

Quote
With big brother and Heisman-frontrunner Tua Tagovailoa watching, 2019 Alabama QB commit Taulia had another huge game.

While not the 500-yard, 4-TD performance of last week, this video by Overtime SZN shows a little more diversity. His mobility frees up the ground game with the backs, he makes some really nice reads on double-crossing patterns ......

Not sure about the mass exodus.  Might lose JJ.  Others could stay for their senior season.  Depends on how high in the draft the receivers are projected.

Georgia's class has taken a lot of hits this month.  This one might not be good news as Emery is now said to be leaning towards LSU.

Quote
The up-and-down month on the recruiting trail continued for Georgia on Thursday when John Emery, the nation's No. 1-ranked running back, announced he was reopening his recruitment.

Emery's decommitment is the fourth major loss the Bulldogs have suffered this month to their top-10-ranked 2019 class.

Five-star wide receiver Jadon Haselwood backed off his pledge to the defending SEC champions on Oct. 2, just days before cornerback Jalen Perry and linebacker J.D. Bertrand -- both rated at four stars -- decommitted.

Emery, a 5-foot-11, 202-pound all-around talent out of Destrehan High in Louisiana, committed to Georgia in July over Mississippi State, LSU and Florida State. The Under Armour All-America Game selection was on the campus of nearby LSU earlier this month for the Tigers' 36-16 win over the Bulldogs.

LSU is now considered the front-runner for Emery, with other programs still in the running, including Florida State.

Will LSU-Alabama impact Sopsher's recruitment?

https://n.rivals.com/news/take-two-will-lsu-alabama-impact-sopsher-s-recruitment-

Ishmael Sopsher is the top-ranked defensive tackle in the 2019 class. A 6-foot-4, 305-pound five-star prospect from Amite, La., Sopsher was one of many outstanding recruits who attended the Alabama-LSU showdown Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

What made Sopsher’s visit even more important is that the five-star defensive tackle is down to the Crimson Tide and the Tigers in his recruitment...

The Tide’s 2019 offensive line class currently consist of 5-Star offensive tackle, Pierce Quick, and 4-Star recruits: Amari Kight, Tanner Bowles, and Darrian Dalcourt. This group of guys is pretty impressive. Kight and Quick are tackles that could come in and make immediate impacts. Bowles and Dalcourt recruits that will most likely lineup as guards and are very mobile.

The Tide is far from finished with their offensive line class. They have room for possibly two or more commits and they have their eyes on the prize as they still remain in the mix for multiple 5-Star guys. Clay Webb, Evan Neal, and Darnell Wright are all on the Tide’s radar. They are also all 5-Star recruits and are included in our 2019 Most Wanted Recruits list.

The Bama haters are going to hate for a long, long time.  8)

I had not heard that about Clay Webb's family, but he's considered the best center prospect to come out of the state in a long while.  Still stinks that we couldn't pull him in, but I agree that the circumstances make it feel better than if he'd been born in-state.

As of Tuesday morning, Alabama has 24 commitments, and 23 are rated four- or five-stars. Alabama’s only non-blue-chip commitment is a kicker.

Ten of the top 100 nationally on the 247Sports Composite are committed to the Tide. That’s ridiculous. The entire Pac-12 combined has eight top-100 commits.

There’s a decent chance that this happens, especially after Nick Saban got No. 1 safety Daxton Hill to flip from Michigan to Alabama. No. 1 is locked up for 2019. That much we know.

Saban and Josh Gattis were up in the DMV on Monday. They dropped in on Bama commits Shane Lee, Darrian Dalcourt, Keilan Robinson, and DeMarcco Hellams. (I have a feeling they may have run into 2020 5-star commit Chris Braswell as well but don’t tell anyone.)

On Tuesday, Saban jetted to Northern Misssissippi to have an in-home with 5-star LB Nakobe Dean with Pete Golding. Then, he was off to Houston to meet with 4-star CB Marcus Banks and 4-star RB Deondrick Glass.

Other staff members were fanned out across the country visiting, among others, commit Justin Eboigbe from the Atlanta area, commit Tanner Bowles from Kentucky, 5-star Louisianan Ishmael Sopsher, and an Arizona pair, Ty Robinson and Noa Pola-Gates.

Wednesday Saban, Gattis and Kuligowski head back up to the Mid-Atlantic to visit 5-star commit Antonio Alfano, and 4-star commit John Metchie who is currently the only wide receiver in this class. And then the tireless one heads to IMG Academy.

The five-star said, "Me and Rodney (brother) will go to school together. There is zero chance we go separate ways.

Yes, he's shopping a deal for his brother.  Looking out for family -- you can't say that makes him a bad character -- but he might have a handful of demands by the time he gets to the NFL.

The brother is already at East Miss CC.  I guess it's possible he wouldn't meet the requirements for his 2yr program for next year's class, but I have no reason to think that is the case.

His brother currently has one offer.  LSU.  I guess that pretty much wraps it up.

Under-Armour All America Bowl will be Saturday at noon CT.

https://247sports.com/college/alabama/Article/2019-All-American-Bowl-best-players-Thursday-127279682/

LB Christian Harris (145) - Among the linebackers in the All-American Bowl, and nationally, there are very few that have as much upside as Harris. Despite his background at cornerback and receiver, he has taken to linebacker really well. He sees things naturally, has easy athleticism, can play both inside and outside and hasn’t shied away from the physical side of the position. Harris is an Alabama signee.

DL Antonio Alfano (28) - It was more of the same from Alfano. The Alabama signee showed quickness and strength at the snap and the flexibility to get skinny and penetrate the line of scrimmage. He landed another sack in 11 on 11 play and created a lot of negative plays once again.

Trey Sanders (Alabama signee) has impressed with just the speed of play that he brings. He presses the hole effectively and has been really versatile with his ability to catch out of the backfield and show big time burst in space...

Found this on the Rant:

Marcus Banks, the No. 189 overall prospect and No. 21 cornerback in the 247Sports Composite, will announce his college commitment Saturday, Jan. 5, during the All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

According to NBC, Banks' commitment announcement will occur during the first quarter.

Banks is choosing between Alabama and Texas A&M. The 247Sports Crystal Ball favors the Crimson Tide for the 6-foot, 170-pound Houston (Texas) Dekaney product, who is regarded as a four-star recruit.

I've been reading a lot on the Bogle commitment. He had strong ties to Manny Diaz at Miami, but called CNS Friday night and told him he may come to Bama. He didn't make up his mind until shortly before making his commitment. He said he prayed, coming out of the tunnel for today's all-star game, and it came to him.

He's one we weren't really expecting, so this is a real bonus. I know there is time for him to change his mind before the February signing date, but I think him making this decision, with the agony involved in making it, bodes well for us to keep him.

I'm also reading that we are still in the lead for To'oto'o.

On paper, this is rated as Bama's greatest recruiting class ever.

ROLL TIDE!!!!!

"Sopsher drops in rankings"

Former 5-star DT Ishmael Sopsher has been plummeting down the rankings after a long stay in the top ten. Once he matched up with elite talent at the Under Armour All-America Game, his flaws began to show. He is still talented but not quite the catch once believed. Rivals took away a star and dropped him down to No. 72 overall...

"Crimson Tide hosting important recruits this weekend"

https://bamahammer.com/2019/01/25/alabama-football-crimson-tide-hosting-important-recruits-weekend/

Most Alabama football fans classify T’oto’o as a must get. Not only is he a talented and physically gifted player, his inside linebacker position is one needing more roster depth. While too early to make a prediction, there are some who believe To’oto’o could make the Tide’s two-deep as a true freshman. The major competition for To’oto’o is Tennessee and Tide fans hope the loss of Tosh Lupoi will not drive the young man to the Vols. Nick Saban and Pete Golding have been working hard to close him.

Every recruit that has come to Alabama since CNS took over in 2007 and stayed at least 3 years has at least one national championship ring.  This has never been accomplished in the history of college football, and there is no end in sight.  Even Bear had some rebuilding years.  If these kids want a ring, they better get while the getting is good.

Alabama signed 24 players during college football's early signing period, and it appears the Tide will sign approximately five or six more players Wednesday.

The Tide has four committed players -- Robinson at running back, Williams at defensive back, defensive lineman Byron Young and defensive end Khris Bogle, who committed to Alabama on Jan. 5.

It appears Alabama will prefer to take two more defensive lineman -- a position of need this season. If Sospher picks Alabama and Young sticks with the Tide, that would satisfy that need. But if either or both go elsewhere, other possibilities include flipping Florida State Quashon Fuller, a 6-foot-2 1/2, 270-pounder from Lehigh Acres (Fla.) and Jacqueze Sorrells, a 6-foot-3, 310-pounder from Winter Park High in Orlando, Florida.

Alabama was also involved with Seminary (Miss.) defensive lineman Nathan Pickering, but it appears he will stick with his Mississippi State commitment.

Alabama also wants another linebacker, and To'oto'o sits atop the wish list.

Other possibilities for late additions include 3-star tight end Brett Seither, a 6-foot-5 tight end from Clearwater, Florida; 4-star offensive lineman Javonne Sheperd, a Texas commit from Houston; and Ealy at running back.

Carson Beck, 10th ranked pro-style QB for the 2020 class, decommitted from Bama on Saturday.  I heard part of an interview with him about his call to Coach Saban.  It doesn't sound like he crossed us off his list, just that he wanted to be upfront about where his head is at, and he said it was a good conversation.  He sounded like a smart kid.

Alabama’s first 2020 commitment of the New Year is in as 3-star cornerback Jahquez Robinson has pledged to the Crimson Tide following a Junior Day visit to Tuscaloosa.

The Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood product’s decision to commit was actually made during a sit-down meeting with Nick Saban on Saturday...

Alabama’s first 2020 commitment of the New Year is in as 3-star (soon to be 4 star) cornerback Jahquez Robinson has pledged to the Crimson Tide following a Junior Day visit to Tuscaloosa.

The Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood product’s decision to commit was actually made during a sit-down meeting with Nick Saban on Saturday...
"With offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia and LSU, among others, Robinson felt the Tide was the choice for him." 

26 offers total, including most SEC schools, Oklahoma, Texas and Miami.

At 6'2" and 180 pounds (soaking wet), he has the size Saban (and the NFL) likes in CBs.  Just needs to gain some weight.

Edited It For You -- he won't stay a 3 star long if the recruiting services paid attention.  Colleges obviously have.

Alabama football made a splash on the recruiting trail Monday night as Top50 athlete Drew Sanders flipped his commitment from Oklahoma to Alabama following an official visit to Tuscaloosa.

The 6-foot-5, 222-pounder from Denton (Texas) Ryan is recruited as an outside linebacker by the Tide. Defensive backs coach Karl Scott led the charge on the dynamic prospect.

Sanders is rated the No. 3 athlete and the No. 36 overall player in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings. He had been committed to the Sooners since 2017.

Clemson’s 2020 recruiting class is shaping up to be one for the ages.

On Friday, 5-star RB Demarkcus Bowman became commitment No. 13 in a loaded, all-blue-chip class. It pushed Clemson to No. 1 in the recruiting rankings, ahead of LSU and Alabama.

Quote
Villanova transfer and former five-star recruit Jahvon Quinerly verbally committed to Alabama on Sunday, he tells 247Sports.

“Coach Bryan [Hodgson} and coach [Nate] Oats recruited me the hardest as soon as I got my release from Villanova,” Quinerly said. “Bryan came and met my parents his first week on the job.”

“What they did at Buffalo is special and their offensive numbers and strategy are as good as anyone’s,” he added. “They were a top five to ten team in every offensive category. The ball moves, they get out in transition and they created a culture where guys are super unselfish and that’s something I wanted to be a part of.”

They may be planning to go to the same school, but I know that they did not successfully use this as a bargaining chip to get Saban to offer a 3*OL a scholarship that he didn't feel the young man was worthy of.  He's shown many times in the past that that tactic doesn't work on him.

Great read.  And he sounds like a high quality, high character recruit.

All you need to know, other than that Saban wants him, is what his HS coach says:

“I’ve told folks that he is a better athlete than  C.J. (Mosley),” Theodore coach Eric Collier said of Kennedy. “And what I love most about Demouy is that he is extremely humble. He’s also the hardest worker on our team in the weight room. That isn’t sometimes. That is every day. All that is on top of being the best athlete I’ve ever coached.”

Quote
The Crimson Tide added to their elite recruiting class this morning, as top 100 prospect Demouy Kennedy announced his commitment to play at Alabama.

Kennedy, a linebacker from in-state Theodore, was once committed to the rival Auburn Tigers before backing out of his pledge. Kennedy picked Alabama over Florida State, LSU, and other big time college football programs he was being courted by.

Which positions will Alabama prioritize in the 2021 recruiting cycle?

https://tdalabamamag.com/2019/08/09/which-positions-will-alabama-prioritize-in-the-2021-recruiting-cycle/?utm_source=Touchdown+Alabama+Magazine+Subscriber&utm_campaign=f8b4fc0c94-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cc36baba97-f8b4fc0c94-275510785&mc_cid=f8b4fc0c94&mc_eid=f8c59bf4db

The quarterback position will undoubtedly be a position of interest for Alabama in 2021 if their 2020 class keeps heading in the direction it is predicted to go in.  No 2020 quarterback has given the Tide a verbal commitment and it is not out of the realm to think Alabama does not land a quarterback in their 2020 class. Their biggest target is USC commit, Bryce Young, but flipping him is far from a sure thing at this point...

It has been reported the Crimson Tide will continue to recruit Hill.  If you listened to Bone's update, Hill has academic issues (which could be solved).

Recruits in Tuscaloosa for LSU game:

https://alabama.rivals.com/news/alabama-crimson-tide-set-for-incredible-recruiting-weekend

The Alabama vs. LSU game will bring in spectators from all areas of the country. There are plenty of rumors of who is in town from a celebrity/musician stand point. President Donald Trump confirmed he will attend the game between No. 1 vs. No. 2.

What is more important for the future of the Crimson Tide is the amount of top recruits who are expected in attendance on Saturday. Alabama will host official visitors, key targets in the 2020 class, elite underclassmen and the majority of its commitments. The number of recruits on campus is expected to exceed 150 ...

That's got to be some kind of record.  :o

You mean, "Sure will be great to reel a bunch of those bad boys in when we win."

To me, the post by the mother is too over the top to be credible.  More damaging are Frazier's words which basically don't dispute much of what the mother said.  After this season I thought something was 'off' with the coaching staff.  Maybe this gets at part of it....IF...any of it is true.  Who knows??

Several Alabama commits are now ranked a good amount higher....

Four-star safety Brian Branch and four-star defensive lineman Timothy Smith have both moved up more than 50 spots in the 247Sports Composite rankings, which were updated Thursday.

Branch, who jumped up 51 spots, is now rated as the 58th-best overall player and third-best safety in the 2020 recruiting class.

Smith, meanwhile, is up from No. 148 to No. 85 in the 247 Composite overall rankings.

In addition, there were other Crimson Tide commits who got bumped up in the rankings as well, such as four-star inside linebacker Demouy Kennedy, four-star outside linebacker Will Anderson and four-star defensive lineman Jah-Marien Latham.

Kennedy, who moved up 18 spots, is now rated as the 34th-best overall player in the class. Anderson is up 19 spots and is now ranked as the 78th-best overall player in the class. Latham, who jumped up 44 spots, is now rated as the 194th-best overall player and 18th-best defensive tackle in the class...

He won't be a "3 star" much longer. It looks like everyone has taken notice after his performance in the Texas HS playoffs. If not then, Saban's in-home visit says it all.

Duncanville is just southwest of Dallas, a suburb.  I once owned a house in that school district.  There is nothing quite like Texas HS football, especially the playoffs.

Just over a week out from National Signing Day, the Crimson Tide is back on top of the recruiting world, taking over the No. 1 spot from Clemson on Tuesday on the 247Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings.

Alabama had several big movers in the final edition of the Top247 for the 2020 class, including defensive tackle Timothy Smith earning his fifth star, athlete Drew Sanders maintaining his spot among the top-rated recruits, weak-side defensive end Will Anderson jumping into the top five of the rankings, and quarterback Bryce Young being named the No. 1 overall player in the America.

The Tide's score currently stands at 310.93. Clemson fell to No. 3 in the standings with a score of 309.73. Georgia is in the 2-spot with 309.76. Of course, National Signing Day is eight days away, so standings are subject to change with teams still working to land final additions to their classes.

National Signing Day:
https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/national-signing-day-2020-five-college-football-teams-that-could-make-the-most-noise/

Already ranked as the No. 1 team in the country, the Tide may not be done yet. The most likely big target left on the board is McKinnley Jackson, a native of Mississippi that hit January as one of the most high-profile uncommitted prospects in the country. Alabama holds most of the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions for the nation's No. 9 DT and the recent hire of former Ole Miss assistant Freddie Roach as its DL coach is another boost for the Tide.

McEachern (Ga.) receiver Javon Baker chose not to sign with Alabama last month, despite being committed to the Crimson Tide since November 2018.

His high school teammate, defensive lineman Jamil Burroughs, also waited to sign after committing to the Tide in October 2019.

Now, it looks like the McEachern teammates – two of only four Alabama commitments who chose not to sign on Early Signing Day – will sign as expected Wednesday...

That would be great news indeed! Georgia picked up that crazy RB that put them over us for the #1 recruiting spot. This would put as back to the top spot, I would think.

Quote
Three-star defensive back Devonta Smith has seen his recruitment explode in the past month and the offers keep pouring in on a weekly basis for the Cincinnati La Salle product. He is closing in on 30 offers in total.

Smith, 5-foot-11, 170-pounds, is being recruited as a cornerback by most schools but he also has the ability to play safety or wide receiver at the college level. His play on defense was instrumental in La Salle winning the Ohio Division-II state championship.

This week has seen a continuation of the flurry of offers and two, in particular, caught his eye in Alabama and Oregon, and both of them are high on Smith's personal list of favorites.

They have 9 in the 247composite top 300, including two 5*.

Their current class without adding another player would have ranked 15th in the country last year and 5th in the SEC (ahead of Auburn and Florida).  If Pruitt gets 4 more players of any quality to fill out a full class of 25, you're talking about a top 10 class.  That's quite an accomplishment in a state that puts out little SEC-caliber talent and competing with Saban and Kirby in two bordering states.

With the NCAA having granted Spring sport athletes an additional year of eligibility I can't help but wonder how that might effect baseball and softball recruiting for next year.  I mean, if a team has some outstanding talent that decides to return for that extra year, will that effect the decision of a HS kid with also outstanding talent/potential if he/she had been considering the same school?  Also, won't that mess up the numbers of players on each team over what the NCAA currently allows potentially?

He and his twin brother James are Texas legacies. Their dad, Blake, played there in the 90s. That would be quite a get, especially if we get both of them, which is likely.

Good question Preacher.   For my 2-cents... Guessing that part of the reason this guy flipped from UTX is that TX got a commit from a top in-state QB last week.  Here's a story about all the flipping & flopping that affected his decision.

https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29683995/espn-300-qb-jalen-milroe-flips-commitment-texas-alabama


I suspect Milroe is being told that he will be the only QB Bama will sign in this class.  Maybe they are also telling him to be prepared to redshirt his frosh year.  (With all the Covid craziness he ought to be willing to do that.)  So he could be a backup as a redshirt freshman and then maybe starter as a soph.  I would think he'd find that a good path for success.

Have you shifted your focus to the class of 2022 and beyond? Well, Alabama head coach Nick Saban and staff haven’t. On Monday, the Crimson Tide added Ohio State wide receiver transfer Jameson Williams, a former Top100 recruit in the class of 2019 from St. Louis, as he committed to UA on his social media account over Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Florida, Michigan State, USC and Michigan. Williams joins a loaded wide receiver haul for UA this cycle, including five-star Jacorey Brooks, A-Day standout Agiye Hall, Florida product Christian Leary, and Texas star JoJo Earle.

That's a big get.   He's a top 20 national player.   The high school class in Alabama for 2022 is better than normal, with 12 players in the national top 250.   Currently, Alabama looks good to land 7 of the top 8 in-state players, with Auburn not projected to sign ANYONE in the top 10.   I expect their new coach to make some headway quickly, though.  I'm already more impressed with him than Gus.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Calera wide receiver garnered an Alabama offer this summer after posting a 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash at a Crimson Tide camp...

“He’s special,” Hamlin said. “He’s kind of in that two or three percent of top players that you have to account for every single down. He’s an unbelievable athlete.”

They have never had to work for a living like, plow a mule to help with crops. School grades mean more than the sports in school. Saying yes sir or yes mam kept us from getting a plow line whuppin.

For the second time in the last three recruiting cycles, Alabama is back at Buford (Ga.) High School, this time landing Jake Pope, one of the top defensive backs in the Southeast. Pope chose the Crimson Tide over Georgia, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.

"What stands out to me most about Pope's game is that he's just a smart football player. He is always in the right spot, he can read and react quickly and at receiver he has shown to have more speed than sometimes he's given credit for. At safety, Pope can diagnose the play quickly and then he doesn't hesitate to come up and make a play." ...

Alabama was actually one of the first programs to recruit and with Elijah Pritchett in the fold they rise three spots to No. 3 in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings as Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide pursue a 10th No. 1 recruiting class over the last 12 cycles. Pritchett joins fellow blue-chipper Tyler Booker and Dayne Shor as the defending National Champs put together another terrific offensive line haul.

Top247 offensive tackle Elijah Pritchett is a team leader and standout player at the point of attack for one of the Peach State’s top high school football programs in Columbus (Ga.) Carver. Following his senior season he’ll cap his prep career playing in the All-American Bowl.

The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Pritchett will then head to Alabama. The blue-chip recruit chose the Crimson Tide over Florida State, Georgia and USC among others announcing his plans during a live broadcast on CBS Sports HQ.

Five-star point guard Jaden Bradley commits to Alabama

And just like that … Alabama basketball’s class is off and running. 2022 five-star point guard Jaden Bradley announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide, picking Nate Oats and company over Arizona, Gonzaga, Florida State, and Kentucky, among a long list of other suitors. Bradley is the first commitment in UA’s 2022 class.

I just saw on ESPN where he is the #8 ranked player according to ESPN, and the #1 ranked point guard. Huge haul for CNO!

It’s been a bounce-back weekend for Alabama football, and that continued on Monday as four-star cornerback Trequon Fegans committed to Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. Last week the Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson product de-committed from Miami with UA lurking. Fegans didn’t wait long to announce his intentions to roll with the Tide.
