    *** DL OJ Smith Gets Full Offer, Signs With Alabama ***

    Grades have been rumoured for awhile, and sounds like they want to create an alterior motive for him not signing with the good guys. They have reached out to other schools.

    I think he weighed in close to 345 on that almost 6-2 frame.

    Could also be related to other DTs we have coming in, plus a commit from a good DT for the 2015 class as well.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    FWIW, Saban has an in-home visit with him scheduled for tonight, so there doesn't appear to be any reduction in interest on our end.

    Smith has been looking around a bit, though. Kind of hard to believe that's not somehow related to academics. He may be looking somewhere else for a sign-and-place that will be more committal to giving him a scholarship post-JUCO.

    Won't qualify academically for Alabama. Is definitely signing with Miss St. Will more than likely be two more besides him that don't make it academically

    Please clarify for the less informed: are Bama's academic standards more stringent than other SEC schools? I though the Conference standards were all the same.
    Also, is Bo one of the other two casualties you're predicting? That would be a huge loss.

    Great question. Was wondering the same thing, but the information I have is that he won't qualify academically for Bama. And that he's definitely signing or sign/place with MSU.

    Regarding who the other two are, I don't know exactly who those two are. Bo, shockingly, seems to be on track to be here. Paint me surprised, but IMG works wonders.

    He was talking about Mullen stopping by earlier today.
    Do you think the other two that won't qualify will still sign by NSD, or do you expect them to flip as well?
