    Home school, immediate playing time, or continue the young tradition of putting nose guards in the league at Alabama?

    Alabama -- where else do you have a better chance of winning and grabbing a multi-million NFL contract at the end?

    Will we have a spot left for him if he wants to come to Alabama? I would think so but this class does not have many open spots and there are a lot of recruits considering Bama.

    You always have room for a space eating, play making defensive tackle his size.

    Don't think we'll end up with him. And that's not a bad thing IMO.

    Just out of curiosity, why would that be a good thing, we need at least one space eater DT every class, especially since they're so vital to the success of our D..

    It seems to me that a key to stopping the HUNH offense is to get pressure with the D Lineman without having to blitz so much. Let's see if our recruiting strategy reflects this need this year by emphasizing gets on the D Line like Elam.

    Just have my doubts about Elam. He goes to my alma mater, my younger played with him, and three of the assistant coaches are former teammates of mine. From everything I've heard some of the recruiting services are a bit too high on him. Although I was told the staff seemed to make him a priority when he visited in the spring. Don't get me wrong he has potential just based on size alone, but I think we'd be better off using the scholarship on someone else. Ivory and Lake will hold down the nose guard position for the next couple years, and hopefully we land Payne in the 2015 class who sounds like difference maker.

    not saying you are wrong by no means but I watched Courtney Upshaw play my high schools team and left unimpressed. He sure fooled me in the end.
