    Does anyone think Bama will end up with a top 10 prospect this year?

    I know we have been spoiled in the past few years with having at least 1, sometimes 2 or 3 in the overall top 10 of recruiting rankings. It doesn't appear that we are strongly leading with any of the overall top 10 this year. I realize rankings don't mean much, but it is the off-season.

    I guess and Cece Jefferson is our best chance?

    Trent Thompson is someone to keep an eye on and like you said Jefferson but FLA is the favorite now.

    All depends on which service you use.

    In 247's current top 10, Bama doesn't appear to be a major contedner.

    In Rivals' current top 10, Bama has one commit (Fitzpatrick) and two possibilities (UGA commit Terry Godwin and CeCe Jefferson) with Daron Payne at #12.

    Bama isn't popular among ESPN's top 30, though.

    Like I said, all depends on the service you select.

    I highly doubt we land anyone in the CURRENT top 10, but depending on things get reshuffled throughout the fall in the rankings we could end up with a top 10 guy.

    Per 247, Bama has 11 players that are ranked between #32 and #90. That's a sick haul and it's just June.

    I will trade the number one or two player anyday for a one or two class and based on our current commits there is no doubt we will have that when the ink hits the paper.

    Any updates on Tim Settle? Could Bama get both Payne and Settle?

    exactly. I think we will hold onto Minkah and add Payne at some point. Throw in Ridley and all the other folks currently committed, and I'd be more than fine with our class. It's great to add five stars; most live up to the hype. I would rather our class than one like ole miss that had some very highly rated players last year, but also wasn't nearly as deep as ours.

    I'd rather have 2 or 3 great leaders that work to develop themselves and their teammates, than worry about their relative ranking. No where in the ranking is positive leadership ability or ability to inspire others mentioned, which are probably the best indicators of success of all.
    The Golden Rule for internet postings:

    If you don't have anything nice to say, then say it with class, say it eloquently, and for goodness sake use the English language like your English teacher tried so hard to teach you.

    Excellent post. Makes me wonder as to whether or not somewhere in the eval process somebody asks, " Is this kid a leader?" or is it pretty much entirely 40 times, ht & wt, etc. etc.

    CNS is as meticulous as they come about who gets offers. He knows about their academic status and sets a plan for them. He asks the HS coaches some detailed stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if he spoke to the teachers that gae the kids a bad grade (personally, I'd rather hear a negative review than a bunch of sunshine pumpers if making an evaulation). I know they have "guideline" sizes for positions, but I don't know if they still do since he's emphasizing the "quick twitch" players to combat the spread.

    That would depend on weather Bama or the barn does the evaluation don't you think?

    Granted this was a year ago, but I was in the airport with Settle right after he'd attended a camp at Tuscaloosa. He was still decked out in Bama gear and was raving to whatever coach was with him about how much he loved it. Yeah, I might have dropped an eave or two.
