Take chances on late bloomers or head to the portal to sure things up for 2021. Not like this class isn’t loaded.

We aren't out of it yet for either Arnold or JTT.

Wiltfong didn't say he thinks we're out of it for any of those top-10 guys we're after. He just stated where he thinks they're leaning today. Recruiting is fluid, momentum can shift.

re: Tide FB Recruiting & Roster
LSU has finally offered Jardin Gilbert. Arnold is ahead of Gilbert on Bama's board.

ETA: Gilbert CBd to LSU by Steve Robertson (247-MSU) with high (9) confidence.

O whenever he sees a safety. Seriously, they have managed to get a decent haul the last couple of years.

I've read that LSU recruited Sage Ryan as a CB.

Looking at the recruiting class I wonder do we even try to recruit Tight Ends? Or are they an afterthought for our coaches.

outside of 1-2 guys in each cycle, the rest of them are all pretty similar pieces of clay that you can mold how you want. Fact is at the college level, most tight ends are a match up problem to some degree. If we wanted to feature Forristall, we could. We've had some elite tight ends here in OJ and Irv, so not sure where the bashing is coming from. The kid from South Carolina is really underrated. Go watch his basketball tape, he's a big mean athlete that has huge, huge upside here. The top 3 tight ends in the NFL went to Cincinnati, Iowa, and Georgia Tech. It's a really hard position to gauge outside of the few freaks. Even a guy like Arik Gilbert is a one dimensional tight end that's basically a big receiver. He doesn't block like OJ did. Even OJ has never really lived up to his measurable in the NFL

Bama wanted one TE in the 2021 cycle, offered 18 and landed one (Ouzts) they really like a lot.

re: Tide FB Recruiting & Roster
How things stand with top five uncommitted 2022 CBs

quote:

Denver Harris

Top contenders: Texas, LSU, Clemson, Alabama and Ohio State

Recruiting outlook: A commitment from Harris isn’t coming anytime soon but the Lone Star State native seems to be trending towards these five programs. Tom Herman being on the hot seat at Texas could hurt the Longhorns. LSU seems to have some momentum and you can’t count Clemson and Ohio State out for an elite defensive back.

Farrell’s take: I have Alabama here in the long run even thought others have the edge early.


Harris is ranked #3 overall in the Rivals 2022 rankings.

re: Tide FB Recruiting & Roster
I was wondering when his name might come up!! lol

Lewis is a great kid.. he has one of the best first steps I have seen. He is always moving towards the ball and tracks it very well. He will also lay the lumber. He honestly reminds me of Ruben Foster at times.. if he times a blitz correctly.. it’s a big play. He still has plenty of size he could put on his frame.. but his speed is a huge upside. He runs sideline to sideline with anyone. One of my favorite kids.. and I’m a hard ass. He really worked hard during the offseason to be where he is now. I really believe he will be a great pickup for anyone, especially if he works like he did this offseason . The kid still has a lot of upside in him and he flashes signs of being great now. FSU and Ole Miss have been pressing hard.. Deion has too at JSU. I don’t think JSU is where he will go, but it’s still cool to talk to Deion for him. I will say Kiffin is a good recruiter, he relates with the kids
