re: Football Recruiting & Roster


Bama has 1 heart -- his #1?

LSU & Ole Miss have 2 hearts -- tied for #2?

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
Surge, we didn't make 2021 QB Jake Garcia's top 10 a couple of weeks ago (likely because of the Maye commit). Obviously there is a long way to go so we could get back in it but have you heard of any '21 QBs we are keeping an eye on as a backup plan to or to pair with Maye, if we don't land Young or another '20 QB (outside of continuing to recruit Milroe and Garcia)?

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
Young is the only 2020 QB Hank expects Bama to pursue. I haven't seen much of anything said about other 2021 QB targets since Maye and Milroe committed. Bama had some interest earlier in this guy:

2021 4* QB Miller Moss 6-2/197 CA hudl

(The last post on this thread's 1st page is where I stash recruits that I've had on and later removed from the 2020 and 2021 Top Targets lists.)

Good article on top 2021 QBs

Why do you think that?

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
Hopefully the confidence being shown in a Young flip pans out (and Bama gets no QB transfers) so all we need is Drake for 2021.

The worst case scenerio to me is we don't flip Young, Mac or Lia wins the job next year and the other decides to transfer leaving us with Jones or Lia, Tyson, and Story for '20 with Maye coming in for the '21 season.

Lots of highly rated Texas QBs still uncommitted for '21. I'll be interested to see how that pans out regardless of whether we get involved.

2021 QB Dematrius Davis from Northshore HS in Houston is a name to know. He and teammate Shadrack Banks visited UA in late July. Damieon George and Zach Evans play at Northshore HS. Bama hasn't offered Davis yet, though.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
It would be interesting to see where Deion Sander's kid would fall on the list if we needed a second QB in that class.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
Yeah, it's looking like Alford might commit to A&M at any time. We may only have room for two more DBs and need a couple of CBs more than a pure safety like Alford. It looks like we might get CB/S Joel Williams and CB Nadab Joseph to complete the DB class.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
I like those two,NJoseph and JWilliams,would be a very good haul.
Is Arian Smith not an option anymore ? That speed is so enticing.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
I agree. I'd be happy with that DB haul:

Defensive Backs (4-6)
4* S/CB/WR Brian Branch 6-0/182 GA hudl
4* S/CB Malachi Moore 6-0/180 AL hudl
4* CB Jahquez Robinson 6-1.5/190 FL hudl *
4* CB/S/WR Joel Williams 6-1.5/180 LA hudl
4* CB Nadab Joseph 6-2/193 Juco hudl

Arian Smith said he's decided to take his time. He's seriously considering UGA, UF, Bama and Clemson and will take his OVs before making a decision. Similarly, Xavier Henderson will take OVs to Clemson, UF, Bama, UGA and maybe LSU before deciding.

Thanks. But a lot of the credit for "smoothly" goes to all of the fans who post in here. They're great about evaluating and sharing thoughts on players' talent and skills, discussing recruiting battles, etc. without getting too emotionally caught up in it, not being homers or pessimists who get into silly disputes, keeping the thread relaxed but also on topic well enough, bringing the funny, etc.

My main focus is on maintaining the first page based framework so it's current and accurate, and posting only pertinent news -- in a manner that makes it easy for them to become and stay well informed and contribute, as they do so well.

For example, Carlton deserves the credit for inventing that Timelines post concept. He created and maintained it last year. His design was prettier. He captured and used images like the 1st post in the LSUrb pinned FB thread has. Then I came up with the idea of having a link to it's latest edition in this thread's 1st post and adding the 247 scheduled commits links to it.

I think it's our collective "team spirit" that makes this thread function so well and so smoothly.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
Our board is just thread after thread. I can imagine they don’t want so many “stickies” but damn it’s a mess. But I’ve started to keep up with Bama most because. Thanks for letting be post here fellas.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
I think most, if not all, feel you are very welcome to post here. You do it the right way.

A bigger poster population typically results in a messier board. That even happens to some degree on pay sites like BamaOnline. Not as badly though, since they're moderated more.

I wish this board/site could be setup like VN. Without their posters of course as they are very sensitive over there.

re: Football Recruiting & Roster
I agree, the design and features on VolNation are very nice, but the posters ruin most of the active recruit threads with prolonged disputes, non-recruiting and non-football discussions. Hunting, fishing, music, I hate Bammers.... you name it.

They'll have 10-15 pages of crap without a single post about that recruit. I hardly ever even lurk there anymore. I used to because they post a lot of premium Rivals stuff. But it's not worth the amount of scrolling through crap that it takes to find it.

And like you said, The BVS (Battered Vols Syndrome) has gotten real bad. I had to quit posting there. Too many of them couldn't handle my presence. I was getting swarmed if I posted anything.
