    I have a feeling this won't be a complete deal breaker for us, and may get two d linemen out of it.

    Maybe unexpected attrition will help. Saban also seems to be signing more than we've estimated here.

    big bro doesn't look like he could contribute without something significant happening in his development. He's not even big enough to be an OLB yet only has NT speed. Best case a practice squad kid so unless we completely wiff on someone else and just have a scholly to burn not sure it makes sense.

    I remember with Keenan Allen we didn’t bite on his brother so he went to Cali. from SC I believe. We were recruiting him as a DB as I recall.

    And what kind of message does that send to preferred walk-ons if you hand this kid a scholly? It is the kind of thing that creates locker room problems.

    I agree completely. I know we took Anfrenee Jennings little brother, but he was ranked well as an athlete and had some of the measurables to be able to be a contributor, it just didn't pan out for him after the knee issue.

    I think he will end up at Bama and big brother will be a PWO. Fat barber wins.

    Is Fat Barber the barber that drives from Louisiana to T-town to give Devonta Smith haircuts? Ismael is from the same town.

    Yes.

    Here is the al.com article on him. https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/2018/10/inside-the-tiny-louisiana-town-that-is-a-battleground-for-lsu-and-alabama

    I don’t see Saban being held hostage for a scholarship for big brother. Orgeron, maybe. Not Saban.

    He’s a preferred walk-on, or the Sopshers end up somewhere other than Tuscaloosa.

    I really don’t like a HS senior trying to dictate how we run our program. I also hope Sopsher ends up in Crimson. But it won’t be on terms dictated by an 18-year-old.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.
