    I wouldn't count them in the '06 class because they can't play until '07.

    I was curious about Mike Sparks also. He was not listed in the post above. The last that I had heard he was planning on walking on but that was before Leigh Tiffin. Thanks in advance.

    Kicker Leigh Tiffin and Punter Adam Hill are both walking on. I have heard that Mike Sparks is also walking-on at Alabama but I have not seen anything in print about him.

    Adam Hill: To Walk-On with The Tide
    Adam Hill, from Douglasville-Chapel Hill, Georgia, will compete for a starting role for Alabama.

    "I decided last Sunday (1-29) after my official visit to Alabama that I would walk-on," said Adam Hill. "I met with Coach [Mike] Shula. He told me they wanted me on the football team as an invited walk-on."

    Arrow A closer look at the class of '06: The RBs

    Mike Ford
    2005: Played at Hargrave Military Prep after failing to qualify this past August. An explosive and physical back, Ford has the potential to be next in a long line of great Alabama running backs. He has the talent to run over a linebacker and out run a defensive back to the corner. During the combine at Hargrave, he measured in at 6'2", 220 lbs while posting a 4.41 40 yard dash and a 37 inch vertical leap.

    Academic status: very, very close
    Stats: Approximately 90 carries for 900 yards and 10 TDs
    2006 prediction: has the potential to come in and get carries
    Profile Links: Rivals , Scout


    Terry Grant
    Mr. Football in Mississippi once again lands in Tuscaloosa, as Terry Grant outlasted the home state pressure and signed with the Tide. Grant, like Ford, has tremendous potential and is an outstanding athlete. At 5'10", 180 lbs he has garnered comparisons to Tide greats Sherman Williams and Shaud Williams. Grant can take it to the house on any play, verified by a 4.29 40 he posted at a camp at FSU this summer. Grant is also versatile enough to line up in the slot if necessary.

    Academic status: should qualify
    Stats: 243 carries for 2720 yards and 35 TDs (8000 yds and 80 TD for career)
    2006 Prediction: if impressive he could compete for carries, but with the forseen depth at RB, a redshirt could be probable. Could also help in the return game.
    Profile links: Rivals , Scout

    Additional note: These two were #1 and #2 on the staff's board for RBs this year.

    Overall Grade: A+

    If Bama redshirts Grant, do we even sign a RB next year?

    only if there aren't position changes and/or there's a stud we have a legit possibility at. My guess would be one.

    I have read that Bama will only be able to sign 15 in 2007 but that number will likely grow with normal attrition. If we can't sign the full 25, with the emphasis that will be put on the DL and LB's, and we do sign RB's it will probably be the big and quick backs that can be moved to LB if necessary.
    Since this recruiting class was minus DL I look for the TOP linemen to be lining up to come to Bama next year.

    Agree regarding the redshirt of Grant next year... the only way I believe he will play is if (1) we sustain injuries at RB or (2) he shows himself to be the best of the returners (especially KR). Regarding next year, unless we see some of our current players moved to FB, look for the staff to sign at least one and likely a couple. IMO, we have at least 3 guys on the team that could be moved to FB to shore the area up... McCall, Huber, and Johns (can play anywhere). Due to the depth that we are going to have, believe Huber could be a good move... it is possible that he can be out of the mix the next couple of years at DE if he's not moved. However, if Davidson comes back strong, could see McClain make that switch easily also. As far as Johns go, well you know he would be able to make that type of transition if need be. Also, as someone mentioned earlier in the week, I believe we are seeing CMS accumulate the personnel to be able to run the split backfield (ala Auburn with Ronnie and Carnell). If any of the three move, might allow us to only sign one and possibly none.
