    **** DT Phidarian Mathis Commits to Bama ****

    I thought I would post a thread for Phidarian Mathis. We look to be in good shape based on the article linked below.

    I think this is one to watch...just a hunch.

    Watching him on film, he looks like he has a great upside because he can flat out run for a big man.

    That's what I noticed also. IIRC, when I originally watched his video he was the first guy down on kick-off coverage at 6' 4" 290 lbs.

    Re: DT Phidarian Mathis

    So Mathis is headed to TCU this weekend fresh off the visit to Tuscaloosa last weekend. I doubt that we will have anymore contact with him until signing day other than a call or text message. I like our chances though it will be a tough pull from LSU. We seem to have a quicker path to playing time and have been showing a lot of love. I am hoping this is another signing day prize recruit to pull the trifecta - Mathis - Solomon - Ray.

    Hoping we land Mathis. He has a great upside.

    When looking at Louisiana we could end up with 5 of the top 7 players in the state if you count Moses which I am going to do, but technically he is a FLA kid since he went to IMG. That would be a rough start for Coach O with the corndog nation.

    He's announcing today at 4:30. Need to get him to add DL depth.

    Tim Watts CB'd him to us a little while ago. Tim has a good track record, so hopefully we get some good news later on today!

    Is there any podcast or TV of the announcement? I know he is doing it at the gravesite of a friend so don't know about a broadcast.

    TIFWIW, I just saw where Steve Wiltfong CB'd Mathis to us. He is the director of recruiting for 247 and has an 89% accuracy rate on his CB's and this ranks him #1 in the category.

    A bit unusual, not in any way saying that it`s inappropriate either mind you, but can`t help wondering what, if any, significance this might hold insofar as his choice is concerned (?). Nice to see that we`ve received a couple of rather " high ranking " CB`s.
