It appears the only two EEs that have not been confirmed are Daniel Wright and Brian Robinson.

Robinson could be enrolled and no one would even know seeing as he lives in Tuscaloosa.

A handful of Crimson Tide commitments and targets weighed in with Alabama-Clemson predictions.

Here’s what they had to say:

Xavier McKinney, 4-star S and Alabama commit, Roswell (Ga.) - 31-28, Alabama

Mac Jones, 4-star QB and Alabama commit, Jacksonville (Fla.) Bolles -
35-31, Alabama

VanDarius Cowan, 4-star LB and Alabama commit, Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) – 38-17, Alabama

Jordan Davis, 2018 3-star DE and Alabama commit, Memphis (Tenn.) Southwind – “I don't have a certain number but Bama will win the game towards the end of second quarter.”

Javon Kinlaw, 4-star DE, Jones County J.C. (Miss.) – 21-14, Alabama

Jacquez Jones, 2018 3-star LB, Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Hillcrest – 35-21, Alabama

LaBryan Ray, 4-star DE, Madison (Ala.) James Clemens – “I think Bama wins by a field goal.”

Terrace Marshall, 2018 5-star WR, Bossier City (La.) Parkway – 24-21, Alabama

Phidarian Mathis, 4-star DT, Monroe (La.) Neville – “I don't know but I hope Bama wins.”

Myles Mason, 2018 4-star S, Pleasant Grove (Ala.) – 21-10, Alabama

Thomas Fletcher, LS and Alabama commit, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy – “I don’t know. We’re going to have to play a whole lot better than we played. Clemson looked really good. I think it’ll look a lot like last year. It will come down to special teams.”

Kendall Randolph, 4-star OT and Alabama commit, Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones – “Alabama is going to win.”

I'm glad Tua and Najee were both at the all star game. If Tua was playing in the under armor game, idk what would have happened.

I agree, I think Tua did a great job. It was such a strange situation and Tua handled everything like a Pro.

GORNEY'S VIEW: YES

Najee Harris will be the most talented running back on Alabama’s roster from day one, but he needs to buy into the system, take to coaching and then be mistake-free to earn Saban’s trust early on.

I compare Harris to Todd Gurley, but the top-ranked player in the 2017 class is probably more talented at the same stage. If he continues to develop physically in Tuscaloosa – there’s no reason to think he won’t – then Harris could be a star in the SEC. He has the build to be the next Derrick Henry, only faster and more elusive. With his running and pass-catching ability, the five-star could be an incredible addition to Alabama’s offense.

But Harris also needs to show maturity and patience. If Scarbrough is getting more carries or Damien Harris emerges even more or Jacobs becomes a bigger part of the offense or Emmons becomes the feature back, Harris cannot relent. There is a tremendous amount of running back talent at Alabama, and Harris has to persevere and continue developing.

Harris has been a star for years in Northern California and has basically dominated every time he’s been on the football field. He needs to be focused and patient in his career at Alabama, because if he shows off his talent then he’ll be in the NFL. He’s that good, and I suspect he’ll earn playing time early and show just how good he can be.

If he can't pick up blitzes and pass block, he won't play...and I'd be surprised if he's ever had to do any of that before.

Cowan says he is trying to convince Aubrey Solomon to come to Alabama.

Jeudy is definitely on campus. He was hanging out with Tua in his Snapchat last night.

Cool to see how Tua and Jalen both immediately turned their focus to next season. Tua tweeted "Time to work" and Jalen said in an interview after the game "My sophomore year begins tomorrow. it seems the Saban mindset has sunk in heavy to these two

Sheffield is claiming to want to be a 1 and done guy. Why not? OSU likely will have had 6 EEs from the secondary in 2 years (Powell, Bell, Apple, Conley, Hooker and Lattimore who hasn't officially announced yet).

I think OSU will be moving their 1 official safety, Pryor, to LB and moving 1-2 of the corners (Maybe Okudah and or Wade) to safety. It seems to be a theme with OSU lately, to recruit guys who can gain a bit of weight and slide down to the next position. We do it a lot with DEs who OSU adds 30 lbs to and puts them inside (also due to a lack of recruiting 315 lbs well in the north)

Sheffield is obviously talented but the problem here was he wanted it given to him and not have to work hard for it. Good luck to the young man.

Yea that is what was said. Obviously Bama is still the standard, but it isn't like OSU has been recruiting chopped liver at DB lately especially with the 2 5* guys in this class and 2* guys, as well as the guys already on the roster.

If he came to OSU and gets the starting role then more power to him and obviously I hope he does great
