Down the backstretch they come…With just 27 days left until National Signing Day, the rush is on for SEC schools to bait, hook, and reel in as many recruits as possible. Below you’ll get an idea of just how well they’re doing.
Early enrollees have played a vital part of the Crimson Tide’s success on both sides of the ball since Nick Saban took over the University of Alabama football program in 2007. Defensive backs like Kareem Jackson and Dee Milliner, who both started double digit games as true freshman, played major roles on the Crimson Tide defense after making the decision to enroll early at the Capstone.On offense, Alabama fans need look no further back than this season to see the impact that early enrollees can have. BothT.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper were early enrollees and can be largely credited with the Crimson Tide’s offensive success in 2012, with Yeldon rushing for over 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns to go with Cooper being the team’s top receiver and one of the SEC’s best.
