    Wow! What a class....

    Re: *** QB Blake Barnett Commits to Alabama ***

    Wow, very big news here, and very refreshing for Alabama fans. To be sure, this is a far better talent than I ever expected us to land at QB in 2015 with Coker, Bateman, and Cornwell on campus. This kid has all of the physical tools, and he is by no means a long-term developmental project that we are taking a flyer on (like, for example, Fanuzzi, Ely, McLeod, etc.). Very big pick-up here.

    Real question: Can we keep him? Barnett plans to enroll early, but even so that still means we have to hang onto him for another 6+ months, and it a verbal commitment certainly doesn't change the fact that 2,000 miles still separates Corona and Tuscaloosa. The previous de-commitment from Notre Dame a few weeks ago also gives pause for concern. At the very least, expect that the staff will continue to recruit him non-stop, verbal commitment to us or no.

    National recruiting analyst for Scout:

    @GregBiggins In Barnett, #Bama is getting a QB with maybe more raw physical upside than any other signal caller in the nation, not close to peaking yet

    Hope he stays, but I agree on the issue of keeping him, BET. For a lot of reasons, it's just hard to pull a top prospect from that far away.

    Not complaining but as BET said I think it may be hard to hang onto him. If we do it will be a log jam at QB again next year *if* Coker, Cornwell, and Bateman are still with us. Seems like BB wouldn't see much playing time for a few years. Never no what could happen injury or transfer wise though.

    At this point I expected us to not have a QB commit in this class to be honest. The flirtations by a couple of guys (Barnett included) seemed like just that to me. Very surprised, and very excited. As everyone else has said, it is a long time to signing day...let's hope we hold him!

    Actually I could see him earning a shot early on, Bateman has not panned out like most thought (and myself) and after Coker is gone he would be a RS-F in an open QB battle more than likely so it's not like he will be sitting for 3 years with no shot. By then I'd imagine Bateman would be in the Alec Morris boat if he doesn't improve.

    I think Cornwell is going to be the guy BB is going to have to surpass for the starting job.

    I have no doubt in that, I lumped him in the "QB battle" category. I was just pointing out that Barnett wont be an after thought for most of his career, that he would have a shot earlier than most think.
