    Does Alabama Have the Best O-Line Class in Recent Years?

    I agree, best OL class I have ever seen and I've been following it since the Forrest Davis days in the 90's as a teenager. No doubt this class is not playing around and if they pan out like the "scouts" think these boys could make the 2012 O-Line look weak!

    We'll find out in a couple years. On paper though yes.

    If coach is there to visit then odds are we are definitely in the thick of things regarding his signature. Distance may be a problem, though, and Jess indicated that he will require a year in service as a Mormon.

    Realistic - No
    Better than a long shot - yes.

    He obviously likes us, but I think family is very important to him so I doubt he re-considers being that far away.

    On paper, we have a great class, but we have at least one with an academic ? (Jackson); another that was thought to be a possible flip to another school or possibly to the DL (McBride), and I think JC had a knee injury this fall.

    With that said, I think we have enough talent coming in that we'll find at least 3 multi-year starters for us, which is very good for one class.

    On paper and based on potential, a great class. However there are some key points at which the actual talent evaluation kicks in:

    Feb 2014 - who actually signs LOIs
    June 2014 - who beyond the early entries enrolls for summer school
    August 2014 - who is on campus for Fall camp
    December 2016 - who actually stayed and lived up to the recruiting rankings

    The last, in my opinion, is the only one that really matters. The rest are just points where we fans get a lot of talking points.

    Jackson got all of his classes cleared by Bama and as long as he passes this spring, he will graduate in May and be here in June. CNS said he'll get a shot at both tackle spots.

    McBride was told he'll start out at guard.

    Piersbacher will start out at tackle.
