Might as well get this one started since this is likely the kid everyone will be eventually be salivating over down the stretch, ala Nkemdiche, Clowney, Reuben Randle, et al.
Odds are he ends up at LSU, of course, but 'Bama is going extremely hard here, and we're at least a serious contender. Visits have been scheduled to some other schools, but realistically this is an LSU v. Alabama battle.
Lost count on how many unofficial trips he has taken to Baton Rouge, but it's got to be near double-digits now. We might need a bit of the nearly-annual offensive implosion from LSU to sway him in our direction. It certainly won't help that they will have earlier playing time to offer than we will. He could get a lot of reps in Baton Rouge as a true freshman, but in Tuscaloosa he's presumably going to be behind at least Yeldon, Henry, Tenpenny, Drake, etc.
This little quote from his Dad, however, is going to stir up some anger and paranoia in south Louisiana:
Almost certainly going to a National Signing Day decision.Alabama is the school that recruits him the hardest," Fournette II said. "They are on him non-stop. Coach (Burton) Burns, being a St. Augustine high school alumnus, wants him as much as anyone."
