    *** CB Marlon Humphrey Signs With Alabama ***

    Just read this in the Greensboro News and Record...nothing strikingly new, but it does tell us how good he really is:

    Re: Marlon Humphrey in the News in NC

    I've heard Saban isn't a fan of two sport athletes, but I'd love to see him do both here.

    The article mentioned him breaking a record set by RGIII. He enrolled early at Baylor and was on the track team when he should have been a high school senior and placed third at the NCAA meet in the 400m hurdles. I don't think he ran track any more after that, but as a QB, he couldn't really miss any spring drills.

    I wonder if that would cause us to miss out.

    Re: Marlon Humphrey in the News in NC

    I don't know who else in the SEC is after him, but Arkansas won the indoor track national championship this year, breaking a three year streak by Florida. His brother started at Arkansas, but had some off the field issues and wound up at UAB, who does not sponsor men's track. Florida was second this year. Texas A&M was fourth, Mississippi state was 12th, the Barn was 14th, LSU 15th, Georgia was 18th and we were 32nd.

    The outdoor title was shared by Florida and Texas A&M this year. Florida won last year and the Aggies had won the previous three years. Arkansas was third outdoors, LSU was seventh, Ole Miss was eighth and we were eleventh.

    He's named us the leader and he is a legacy and he's from AL. I would think track training when it does not interfere with his football schedule would be something Coach would agree to.

    I talked to BH at a golf tournament dinner here last weekend and talking to him about Marlon I got the feeling CNS doesn't have a problem with him running track at Bama too. I also got the impression that BH would like to see his son in T-town.

    Re: Marlon Humphrey in the News in NC

    I can't imagine Marlon going somewhere specifically for track, if he did it would be a million dollar mistake. Saban has been putting secondary players into the NFL like a machine, and Marlon may have the most potential of anyone yet. I admire him for wanting to be a 2-sport athlete, but I would hope that he wouldn't give up a golden opportunity for a dead end sport like track.

    Re: Marlon Humphrey in the News in NC

    I did track Alabama during Shula's tenure and nobody did track and football. Well scratch that Brynbrooke screen a couple minutes but not a full schedule. As far as I know no one has done both sports under Saban. Schools like LSU do much better allowing people to do both track and football.

    Marlon Humphrey is probably the best sprinter/hurdler in Alabama history. He's better at track than football.

    I don't expect him to go somewhere just for track. However, if Saban said he couldn't run track and Les Miles and Will Muschamp said he could, that might be a factor in his decision.
