    2014 RB Joe Mixon Thread

    Talk has picked up about Mixon in recent weeks. Here are his 247 profile and Rivals profile.

    Some have said he'd commit if Bama offers. He released his top four, and Bama wasn't in it (safe to assume that's due to no offer).

    He tweeted this today:

    Just got done meeting with Coach Brown from Alabama! Great Guy and can't wait till the Call comes when he's in Tuscaloosa. #RollTide

    Are we considering him as an h-back type?
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    No. True 5* RB and many feel he is the back-up plan if we miss on Fournette. I saw his HS highlight video and he is impressive and his size and running style is similar to TJ.

    No, he's like 200lbs. He's a true elite RB. I hope we offer if we don't feel good about LF.

    Re: 2014 RB Joe Mixon Thread

    How does Mixon compare with Roc Thomas. Sounds like he's a bigger back than Thomas, but Thomas' size reminds me more of a young Mark Ingram or pre-buff Trent Richardson.

    Is the ship sailed on Roc to Bama if we miss on LF and reach back out to him OR is Mixon truly a more elite prospect and one we'd prefer even over Roc?

    FWIW, I just hate to see RT go to the Barn, especially knowing he wanted to wear Crimson!!!

    Wouldn`t be surprised if this weekend isn`t a pivot point when it comes to LF. I`d wager that the staff will have a good read on LF, but I don`t know if they`ll really press him. If they don`t get a good vibe they might just offer Roc and Mixon and say " first to accept gets in the class". What more on earth can LF learn about LSU and us after this weekend?

    You would almost think that the staff may be saying to Mixon or Thomas "On Jan 2, If LF doesnt commit to us at the UA AA game, you are free to commit whenever you want." Especially in Mixon's case. He still has yet to get an offer and we can slow play him until then without losing any ground. It almost makes you wish we hadnt had all those RBs sign with us last year. We could have two 5 stars committed to us a RB.

    he lives an hour away from San jose in Oakley (Contra Costa County) . until his name was brought up on the recruiting board , I didn't know who he was. I actually know more about prospects in the South than I do in my own backyard.

    anyway, Mixon is elite.

    Is he really interested in going to school at Bama or just excited about getting an offer from the top football program in the country? Some kids just like to stock up the offers. I would have hoped that if we had some mutual interest, we would have been in touch before now.

    He has said on multiple occasions that he would jump at the offer from Bama. The reason our coaching staff has just now started to pursue him is because Mixon contacted the staff himself. It seems like more of a role reversal in the sense of he is trying to recruit our staff to let him join this class.

    Watch him on You Tube, he's a big time player. Would LOVE to have him if LF passes on Bama.

    This guy has some very high rankings and tons of offers from "everybody". Amazing that Bama won't offer; is it a matter of number of available scholarships?

    Can he play linebacker if Fournette signs with Bama?
