    2019 5* DE Kavon Thibodeaux

    Kayvon is the #1 recruit in the nation and we made his top 5. Thought I would start a thread on him since he seems very interested. Cali kid and we have some Cali kids and other west coast kids to hopefully persuade Kayvon to make a business decision and come to T-Town. I mis-spelled his first name in the title thread.

    The crystal ball guy didn't really give Alabama much of a chance of signing this young man. Usc had the highest percentage at 60. Can Saban work his magic on this kid and get him here?

    Could indeed be a long shot, but if any staff and head coach can pull him, I`d put my money on ours. One thing for sure, he sure likes to come here!

    With all due respect, crystal ball predictions are often completely meaningless. When Eboigbe committed Bama had 0%, I think it was UGA and AU 50% each. That is not a rare occurrence. Sometimes they're right, but they are wrong enough to make them very unreliable. This is no reflection on KT's recruitment - I know nothing more than published reports.

    A lot of times those guys take into account just plain common sense. Although it seems common to us, guys picking up everything and moving across the country are rare. Honestly, all Alabama offers above USC is a greater chance to win a championship. Some recruits aren't interested in grinding against other top notch guys for playing time.

    I guess I just don't understand how FSU is in play for him. Is FSU coach from the west coast?

    Obviously, distance wise, no appreciable difference between us and FSU. What would they ( FSU ) have over us as far as sales pitch? Earlier playing time ( " You`ll be the man from day 1." ) ? Don`t think there`s much question as which of the 3 is the more established, successful program at the highest level.

    Taggart being at Oregon probably plays a factor here. Although it was only a year, I suspect there's a relationship between Kavon and Taggart along with some staff members.

    I don't see anything and assume it may be a twitter message. What does your post say?

    Not recruiting related - a vid of Kayvon blowing past an o-lineman in what appears to be The Opening.
