    So, Who`s Left on the Board?

    I`ve seen everywhere from 5 to 8 slots left. I`m sort of assuming that our current 20 commits are slated for December signings. Just feels like the staff might be trying to lock up as much as they can as early as they can. Does the early signing kind of by default relegate kids that wait to February as " prima donnas " ? I suppose we would wait on the Sopsher`s , K. Thibodeaux`s, and Trey Sanders of the world?

    Re: So, Who`s Left on the Board?

    Some other folks have speculated that this class might end up at 28-29 because of back counting, etc. I think it's safe to say we will end up with at least one departure. Cheney has been mentioned and there always seems to be a late surprise. So... I think we're likely looking at 9-10 new names for the list.

    I think we'd be safe to pencil in Clay Webb, Jaylen McCullough and Vonta Bentley. I think it's safe to see we get a safety from the trio of Nick Cross, Cortez Andrews, and Daxton Hill. That basically puts us at 5 more guys. Many think we'll grab Faatui Tuitele, Nakobe Dean, and Trey Sanders. That leaves Darnell Wright, Akeem Dent, Devonta Lee, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and Ishmael Sopsher hanging out there. Gonna be a wild finish.

    Hope you`re right on the 9-10. That`s a lot of talent on the board.

    Even after the signing in December, I think we'll see 2-3 spots open for February signings. So the players holding out to Feb signing probably hope that there's a spot for them...

    The last I saw on McCullough indicated Alabama has moved on to other prospects.

    Not sure but pretty sure everyone left are descendants of Bosco "B. A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus - I pity the fool!

    Re: So, Who`s Left on the Board?

    This would be who I would hope and think we have a good shot at and I'm assuming we are going to have 9-10 spots.

    RB
    5* Trey Sanders

    WR
    4* Pickens

    OL
    5* Clay Webb
    5* Darnell Wright

    TE
    I think we take a big TE but don't really know that will be at this time

    DT
    5* Ishmael Sopsher or
    4* Siaki Ika (he may have moved ahead of 5* Tuitele on our board)

    DE/OLB
    5* Kayvon Thibodeaux

    ILB
    5* Nakobe Dean
    4* Vonta Bentley

    DB
    4* Nick Cross
    4* Davonte Lee or
    4* Jeffrey Carter
    5* Daxton Hill (hope we can get him out of OKie but don't think we do)

    Personally, I`d take any one of this lot. Not a cull in the bunch, IMHO !

    You beat me to it ...

    I'm thinking we may get as few as 8 and as many as 10. Either way it goes, we're looking at a pretty impressive class

    I'm hoping we have a shot with Akeem Dent down the stretch. There's been no indication from him that we have a real shot, but I've read we're working hard to flip him.

    Usually there's 1 that comes out of nowhere. Don't know if that happens this time, but of the 10 or say Jack mentions, man that would be a great finish.

    Best class ever signed by Bama?
