Will give it a go, will contribute all I can. I dont sleep much, but do have to do the standard 5a-3p shift each day and wife and I do a lot of volunteer stuff mostly on weekends but sometimes during the week. But, I will add this to one of the things to take my time.

Alabama DT commit Jah-Marien Latham wants to visit other schools as well

quote:

So far, he’s enjoying the recruiting process. “I love it,” he said. “Sometimes, it gets kind of stressful when you have calls coming in every night from different coaches, but I just try to embrace it.” Though he has committed to Alabama, he said he would like to visit some other top schools including Auburn, Georgia, Clemson, Florida and Tennessee. “I just want to see what is out there, see what some other schools have to offer,” he said.


quote:

The 247 composite rankings currently list Latham as the No. 19 prospect in the state’s 2020 class. He is the 38th-ranked defensive tackle in the state.


Like all kids, he doesn't seem to understand words like Commit. And every year, CNS mentions the "You Shop, We Shop" and with the idea that he is the 38th DT in Alabama doesn't seem to mean much to him either. If I was the 38th DT in the state and Alabama had allowed me to commit, I would be shutting it down and concentrating on holding my spot.

That doesn't sound right ;19th ranked prospect in state and 38th ranked DT in state?

re: Football Recruiting & Roster ~ Kyle Edwards to Tide edition
Yes, I definitely see your point and some of them are never really committed at all...like Bogle. Easiest thing to do is change the terminology from committed to something else.

But I see it a bit different having been on his end of the game. He knows the staff is still recruiting others players at his position so he secured a spot in Bama's but did he?

How many times have we seen Saban (and other coaches too) take a commitment early but squeeze them out of the class later on when higher rated players want in. Players also need a back-up plan too.

Commit and take all your visits to be 100% certain of the decision...I'd expect nothing less from anyone. But from time to time they shut it down after committing but it's not realistic.

Kinda like ole Ronnie Reagan used to say, Trust but verify. I see the players doing the same, Trust the decision but verify it.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster ~ Kyle Edwards to Tide edition
I agree with your points. All programs seem to accept commits and then ease them out should higher rated players want in; however, Bama seems to be more player focused and tries to make it easier for them (at least that is my perception). And I also agree, there should be some other label for these commits. "Agreed to be each others #1 for at least a while, as we both shop around for better fits or just use the process to get free family mini-vacations"
The Bogle committment was typical, the rumor was that he was going to commit to UT at the PolyBowl, but committed to UA; but was obviously never committed.
As the focus moves to the early signing day, all recruitment activities will have to move back (as many coaches mentioned yesterday) and with that the pressures on kids to decide earlier and "commit" earlier. This seems to benefit both parties to a point; but as Saban often mentions, "for those kids who are late bloomers, this doesn't provide them with the time for late stage evaluation" = aka-Josh Jacobs

2020 - What are the biggest needs for this class?
After an amazing OL, DB, and DL recruiting call and an overall great class; what are the biggest needs for the 2020 class?
with the Beck decommittment is it QB? (Lia, Tyson, Hatcher)
If no TE is found to add to the 2019 signees, with this put additional pressure on TE position?
and should I even have to mention, Linebackers? a continued need for depth.

Got to be LB and WR. Need couple elite ILBs and the WR depth could take a huge hit with early departures if they have good years again which I see no way that they won’t with Tua at the helm
