re: Football Recruiting & Roster - Bama3714
[quote]Why?[/quote] No clue. It wouldn't seem like a position that would need one that badly. But that's what a couple of the guys are saying. Haven't seen any names. I'd guess if they went in that direction, it would mean no HS DB will be added. I'd guess it's an either/or thing....

We're also supposedly looking for a potential grad transfer Safety (in addition to the already mentioned grad transfer TE search)....

re: Football Recruiting & Roster - Bama3714
It's recruiting. They "offer" a lot of guys that can't necessarily commit. Not sure that's the case with Rakestraw or not. I have no idea. But we're in a pretty big numbers crunch. Have to keep the possibilities open until some of the other targets play out....

Not sure Bama takes another DB, Rakestraw or anyone else. But Edric Whitley is another one that Bama's staff are evaluating. Another late bloomer like Rakestraw....

That reason is that his senior film got out and coaches saw it. He won't be a 3* when the recruiting services make their final ratings. This isn't to say that we'll sign him, but he's a really good prospect. ...

Mystified me as well. It would be like LSU (circa 2018) negative recruiting a QB recruit that's thinking about going to OU. Kirby is absolutely, completely obsessed with Bama. ...

Also, expect them to jump in out of nowhere on McKinley Jackson. As for Washington, we're supposedly playing a very interesting angle with him. If he doesn't go for the negative recruiting, I expect us to sign him. But, you know how that goes......

re: Football Recruiting & Roster - Bama3714
If he were to sign right now, I think Washington would pick Bama. But he also seems like the type to be pretty easily swayed by negative recruiting. It worked in the end for Kirby with Arian Smith after we had turned the Tide on his recruitment. Ultimately, I'm about 50/50 at best on us signing Wash...

They might still outbid them. I'd kinda be surprised if they didn't. Glad we got the RBs we did. Let Evans be someone else's locker room problem....

Look for Evans to shock people and sign with Ugag tonight or soon unless A&M ups the ante. All out bidding war going on for him right now. Might want to check and see if he's listed on eBay....

[quote]Any news on TiderInsider about who is left on the board?[/quote] Other than the names posted here, a respected poster has mentioned that there is another name not being mentioned, but I'm not sure who it is. Have also seen that we basically have someone in the transfer portal that we fe...

It's likely we would go the transfer portal route at WR if it came to that. Theo Howard from UCLA is one to potentially keep an eye on if none of the WRs come back....

[quote]LB Drew Sanders – This kid is a beast and has a ton of upside with his size and length. He can do it all – tackle in space, rush the passer and cover.

[quote]Coach visited JJ today.. we are in the drivers seat with him now. ;) Not sure if he is a take right now or not. I guess it will come down to who we feel good with.. Washington, JJ, or Brandon Frazier. I also wonder if we will take two with Caden Clark’s situation [/quote] Have heard that h...

[quote]Reading tea leaves LSU tried their best shot with Kennedy but is expected to stick with the Tide. [/quote] According to a Louisiana/LSU source close to Rodney Orr, Aranda thinks Kennedy is elite. Bama's staff feels the same way. Easy 5* talent. Slotted for ILB at Bama....
