    4* CB Chris Jones?

    #3 DB in Alabama, #8 overall in Alabama and #16 DB in nation per Rivals.

    Scout has him with an offer but Rivals does not. Have we offered him

    Rivals Profile: 4* DB Chris Jones - Yahoo! Sports

    Scout Profile: 3* DB Chris Jones - Scout.com

    Either way, looks to be a barn lean.

    Definite Barn lean prior to our offer. Now that we have offered and we are his favorite school, who knows.

    We have offered and he grew up a Bama fan, but awbarn offered first so we're currently playing a bit of catch up.

    Exactly. Noteworthy though: He was excited to get the Bama offer and immediately tabbed Bama #2.

    its a funny thing, he is listed as 6' feet tall on Rivals and they rate him a 4 star.

    on Scout, he is listed as 5'10 and rated a 3 star.

    per Rivals, no Bama offer and all schools listed are of medium interest.

    per Scout, he has a Bama offer and he is "high" on auburn.

    whatever...

    Think we caught up

    Chris Jones, Scout.com three-star cornerback from Adamsville-Minor, Ala., is one of the top uncommitted prospects in the South. He has more than 20 scholarship offers and will begin taking official visits in the near future. One school is no longer a favorite...

    As previously mentioned, Jones grew up an Alabama fan, and if we really go after him we will likely get his commitment / signature.

    Auburn jumped in on this kid first, and he was pretty high on them. Since then, however, Alabama has offered and at this point he has all but eliminated Auburn. At the end of the day, he'll take his visits and look around, but it would be a major surprise if he ended up anywhere but Tuscaloosa. His 'Bama offer looks firm, and Saban doesn't miss on in-state kid who legitimately grew up a 'Bama fan.

    Finally, get ready for it, Jones is going to be heavily-recruited and highly-touted. Scout still has him as a middling three-star -- consider the source on that one -- but this kid is starting to get heavily recruited by a lot of high-end programs... 'Bama, Florida, Tennessee, Notre Dame, etc. Rivals already has him as a four-star, and he'll get there on Scout eventually too. When all is said and done he will be one of the most heavily recruited corners in the southeast.

    That being the case, why did Bama wait so long to get after him?

    Well, we didn't really wait all of that long. He's been on our radar screen all along, and it's still seven months 'til National Signing Day. I think people tend to get carried away, but the truth of the matter is that we are still very, very early in the recruiting process at this point in time.

    The biggest issue was / is that with us recruiting at the level we have been, we cannot just mail out offers to anyone and everyone. A school like Auburn, with no depth whatsoever, can basically offer every legitimate SEC caliber prospect by April 1st, but we cannot do that. We have the luxury of being a lot more selective, and the net effect of that is that we evaluate kids like Jones much more thoroughly before we offer. I think that is all that happened here. The staff was always aware of him, but they wanted to do their due diligence.

    BET,

    true to your words, per Scout Jones has Auburn "low" on his offer list...

    this sounds like the Danny Woodson scenario all over again...

    Indeed.

    Happens all the time. Kids effectively fall in love with the first one to show them any attention. But, of course, it's a long time to NSD and once they see other suitors show interest, it's a whole new ballgame.

    For what it's worth, we've been on the flip side of this equation several times too. It's a two-way street, no doubt about it. Remember Robert Marve?
