Cecil Hurt had an excellent article this morning about Saban's recruiting philosophy.
In it he explained how Saban has a purpose for each class.
He even actually addressed us signing four running backs by writing, "If Bama signed four running backs it's because Nick Saban wanted to sign four running backs".
I remember being amazed at our running back depth last year and then boom boom boom..just like that Lacy was banged up, Fowler was out, Hart was out, and we basically had two healthy scholarshipped running backs, so I'm not going to second guess acquiring more than enough quality depth at such a vital position.
Here's Cecil's entire article. It's pretty darn good.
