    Is our class unanimous #1?

    There is talk about this maybe being our best recruiting class of all time. We have the number 1 class in ESPN, Scout, Rivals and 247 at least. Is there any other? I don't ever remember us being unanimous #1 before. Always there was one service that would put us at #2 or #3.

    So is there any recruiting service that DID NOT put us #1 this year? Other than the People's Recruiting Service, which I am sure has Auburn ahead of us.

    It's unanimously unanimous!

    They are number one, but the margin and what not varies. For instance, take a look at Scout (who had us fourth last year):
    http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=14&yr=2014

    Alabama is almost 1,000 points up on #2, and they are 2,000 points up on Oklahoma. Although, it's not the points total that is so notable, or the fact that Scout has them as averaging over a 4 star, it's the margin. They're well ahead of the pack.

    Seven so called 5 stars guys. Think about that for a bit and let it sink in. Not too long ago if we had that many 4 stars we'd be astonished.

    This, on paper, is one of the top 3 classes ever assembled. When you have 1/3 of all 5 star players, and the only lower ranked players are JuCo guys (who are always ranked lower)...it's something to marvel at. We'll see how it pans out ON the field, but seeing as you can technically count Coker in this class too (no, he has no bearing on any numbers aside fromt he 85) if he pans out and is as good as advertised...this class could be historic.

    There are 25 Parade All Americans. Three are utility and kicker positions. Of the 22 regular positions, we had seven.

    Yes, at least until the NFL draft.

    Did anybody catch Tom Rinaldi yesterday in yet another testimonial to Saban's love of recruiting, make a perhaps intentional gaffe that, with NSD over, "He's already looking ahead to the 2015 draft"?

    Methinks Coach Saban might've scripted it as a lovely double entendre for the Crimson Tide program - right up there with that giant $52M facsimile check a while back.
