    That's awesome Jam. I saw today where EJ Holland and Shannon Terry CB'd him to Bama also. Trending big time and he would be the crown jewel in this class.

    Agree to an extent. The guys on the inside that are still on the board, Sopsher and/or Ika, would be that for me.


    Hill is a dog though. A safety with CB speed/skills. Nick salivates at that.

    Ika wants to come to bama badly but don't know if we have the room. I think Hill is a more athletic Fitzpatrick and best athlete since Landon Collins imo (who I think got too big at bama). He matches or beats Stingley in every category including 40 yard dash. Thibodeaux is better than Smith (UGA Commit) Neither are as good as Anoma. We will sign a lot of OLB's next year esscpially from the DMV area (we will hit that area hard next year) that imo are better than the guys this year especially Sherman (who tested better than Smith 19 see above at the opening), Smalls, Braswell, Clowney (yes related to that #1 pick). We lead for three out of 4 with a legacy Grimes in there as well. LB class next year will be huge.

    Jam, what`s your honest opinion as to our chances with Thibodeaux and for prying Hill out of Oklahoma? It`s a great class now. With those two?...Wow!

    Currently for Thib it is between BAMA/FSU with us leading. Tosh is huge and will be in this race. leading now and signing in December are two different things. For Hill Everything I've gathered has him in our class but there is pressure to stay instate but he loves Saban. Saban record with NFL prospects imo is the reason we get him. I'd feel better if he commits sooner rather than later which he say he's going to do.

    Little surprised if he`s really under pressure. I can understand a kid waiting if he thinks things might get unpleasant, particularly for his family.

    Well, the non-game part would need to have gone better than great, IMO, because the game sure stunk for FSU. So, what`s Taggert`s main selling point? " You need to come here and help us because we absolutely suck on D. " ? Let`s see. Let`s compare that to what Alabama has to offer........

    It all comes down to whether this young man wants to take the easy route and play in the Pac-12 where defense is not mandatory or whether he wants to improve his skills, has an opportunity to play as a freshman, play in the SEC where defense is worn like a badge of honor, and go on to the next level. We all know CNS' record with getting elite DE's taken in the first round. It's a matter of choice and accepting the challenge of becoming the best of the best.

    I think you hit it toward the end....does he want a fun college career, or a lucrative professional one?

    If the latter, Tuscaloosa’s the choice. If the former, well, I hope he’s a good student.
