BOL in a premium article reporting Najee will definitely visit Ohio State. It is going to be a battle with Najee but I believe our RB tradition and recent Heisman winners and winning NC will keep him at Bama.
Has anyone ever figured out how many of these early commits actually make it in?
It's way way way to early in the recruiting season to go crazy over any of these Athletes. I'll say this if you are a RB and your looking solely at the production value of the position. Where else would you go ? Of the Rb's that Started on our team (I believe every starter has played in the NFL, and the last two non QB Heisman trophy winners have been from Bama) I'll be on sporadically due to the grueling nature of the application process.
I had the privilege of meeting Najee on Friday on campus. I sure hope we can keep him. He would pass for NFL ready looks-wise right this moment. He's my daughter's age, but yet he looks nothing like a high-schooler. I can't imagine him once Coach Cochran gets a hold of him.
