Four-star DL planning return to Alabama (BamaOnLine-VIP)



4-star DL/OL Omari Thomas 6-5/299 TN hudl

“I’m taking all five (OVs). Auburn (Nov 15th), Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and... (Oregon, Tennessee or Arkansas).” He plans to silently commit and announce at the Jan 4th AA Bowl. He prefers DL, but also likes OL. “I don’t look at depth charts. I feel if they’re recruiting me I’ll be able to go in and contribute if I put the work in, no matter who is there." Per Hank, he is a take.

Take Two: Has Georgia lost its lead with 5-star Arik Gilbert?
quote:



Take Two returns with a daily offering tackling an issue in the college football landscape. Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Adam Gorney lays out the situation and then receives takes from Rivals.com national recruiting director Mike Farrell and an expert from the Rivals.com network of team sites or a regional analyst.

THE STORYLINE

There was a time not too long ago when the perception was that 5-star tight end Arik Gilbert was absolutely going to end up at Georgia. That has changed significantly over the summer.

The Marietta, Ga., standout who shined at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by adidas has talked much more about playing wide receiver rather than tight end and he proved this summer he’s capable of making the move outside... ( more)

Rivals is turrible. Tennessee is the only one pitching to Gilbert about playing WR full time. Everyone would flex him out some like a WR. Rivsals say Clemson is the main threat to UGA. 247Sports" top analysts for UGA, Clemson, UT and Bama have all said that their pick right now would be Bama. This article is 90% drivel.

ETA: Per 08/17 GoVols247-VIP article: "He traveled to Tennessee in January for the Vols’ first junior day of the year, and he visited them again in May for their paintball event. “I think that was the last time I went up there,” Gilbert said."

Five-star sets Alabama official visit (BamaOnLine-VIP)

Five-star athlete Darnell Washington, a top priority tight end target for a number of programs, has locked in an official visit to Alabama for the LSU game, his coach Dominic Hill tells BamaOnLine.

The Crimson Tide joins Georgia with set official visit dates for the Las Vegas (Nev.) Desert Pines product. Washington will return to Athens for the Notre Dame game next month...

What are the chances of getting Washington and Gilbert? Seems like 1 is the most likely but we need help at the TE position.

Unlikely both will go to the same school. At this juncture, I'm feeling like we'll get Gilbert. Even if Forristall (RS Jr) leaves, we'd still have Tennison, Latu, Billingsley, Parker, Gilbert and maybe Clark. Pretty dang good TE room. And we're in the thick of it for some good 2021 TE prospects.

4-Star WR, Ketron Jackson, ‘definitely considering’ Alabama


2021 4-Star wide receiver, Ketron Jackson, took an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa on July 14, where the junior wide receiver got a chance to take a deeper look at Alabama’s football program.

Jackson attends Lancaster High School in Lancaster, Texas. The 4-Star wideout is 6-1 and weighs 175 pounds. Jackson said his visit to Tuscaloosa gave him and his family a chance to connect with Alabama’s staff.

“It was great,” Jackson said. “I love talking with them and the position coach (Holmon Wiggins) held a great meeting with my family and me.”

Alabama offered Jackson on Jan. 17. Jackson also holds offers from SEC programs: Texas A&M, LSU, Arkansas and Ole Miss. Most of Jackson’s Summer was spent running track, which allowed him to take only a few visits.

Jackson said he enjoyed seeing what Alabama has to offer. during his visit.

“They have great facilities and I love the competition and work ethic of their football players,” Jackson said.

The offer list for Jackson is expected to get longer as there is still plenty of time left in his recruitment. It is safe to say Alabama is in a good position with Jackson as he said they are definitely in the race for his commitment.

“They are a winning team and that is no doubt,” Jackson said. “They compete at the highest level and succeed at it. They are definitely a place I am considering playing, not only because of their success but because of the great coaching staff on hand.”

Jackson has explosive speed in the open field, which is the part of his game that translates to the track. Lancaster High school attempted to get him in open space as much as possible during his sophomore season. The Texas product is expected to play an even bigger role in their offense this upcoming season.

Alabama’s 2021 recruiting class has two commits currently in Latrell McCutchin and Drake Maye. The Tide will look to capitalize on their solid relationship with Jackson.

Agree 100%. I don't see any way they both end up at UGA and Evans seems like the more mercurial of the two.

Bone doesn't know jack about where Evans is most likely to commit and sign. I doubt he's ever talked to him and I doubt it'll be UGA. Imo, UA, LSU and ATM are all more likely than UGA is to land him.

ETA: If UGA truly needs another RB along with Milton, I think they'll regret not pushing for and taking 4-star RB Tank Bigsby 6-0/210 GA hudl.
