    Big A RollTide.com: Crimson Tide Adds 32 Football Signees

    RollTide.com: 2008 National Signing Day - Crimson Tide Adds 32 Football Signees w/ Press Conference Quotes, Signee Bios, and Photo Gallery
    University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban announced today that 30 student-athletes have signed national letters of intent to play football with the Crimson Tide, joining two players who enrolled at the Capstone in January and will compete in spring practice later this semester.

    The 32 players come from nine states – Alabama (19), Florida (2), Georgia (2), Louisiana (1), Michigan (1), Mississippi (2), Tennessee (3), Texas (1) and West Virginia (1).

    As listed by position, the Crimson Tide add to their roster seven defensive linemen, five defensive backs, five receivers, four running backs, three linebackers, three offensive linemen, one quarterback, one kicker, one tight end/wide receiver, one tight end/defensive end and one player designated an overall athlete – though several of the players played multiple positions in high school and could move to other positions once they arrive on campus.

    Re: RollTide.com: 2008 National Signing Day Coverage

    Alright men, this is the day THE TIDE TRULY TURNS!

    If anyone is reading this outside of Alabama the B'ham News had a few great Saban articles on the front page of the Sports. They also listed the top 12 (state of) Alabama recruits and the Aubs had 1 at #11. The best they can hope for is a total of 2. Shoot, Florida had more than the Aubs!

    Anyway, you should read these two articles...they are great and show exactly how tenacious Saban is in recruiting. Especially the story of Barrett Jones recruitment!

    Here is the first: http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/bi...100.xml&coll=2

    Here is Scarbinsky's:

    Funny you should say this; I've been apologizing to people all morning for making them work on Christmas Day (all I've gotten so far is blank stares - probably should tell you that I'm in MISSISSIPPI).

    YES! Welcome to the Capstone, Mr. Ray.

    Funny, I always thought Ray would be one of the ones we would lose, somewhere in the process. Roll Tide, Melvin!!
