    I read an article recently that basicaly stated that the difference with Alabama is that they when they get 5 star players they stay 5 star players and when they get 3 star players they make them into 5 star players by the time they leave. This sounds like that type of situation.

    "My wife said, 'Look, if Alabama comes, that's a wrap.' So I went to coach Blair and told him my wife wants Alabama. So he went out and got Alabama."

    I love this quote from Jackson's mother.

    That's a good story. Pretty awesome that his parent targeted alabama rather than us really targeting him. It's pretty impressive to get an offer to alabama with only playing your senior and freshman year of high school.

    Yes! He'll be a better player and a better person. A lot of schools can coach you up on the field, but we're the only one I know of that can change players' lives off the field.
