    Recruiting: The other side of the story

    Jam, RTR, RTO....others with good insight,

    I would very much like to hear your opinion as to 1. why insiders didnít think we would get Sanders and Eboigbe...but in the end we did, AND 2. why days before signing, we thought we had very good chances with Hill and Dean and in the end we couldnít get either of their signatures? I know itís fluid, games are played by parents, family and all that... but it seems like coaches recruiting the players would have a feeling if someone was jerking them around?

    And if signing day is truly a nail biter for everyone - coaches included, ...why donít we ask kids to commit earlier and then move on to a lesser ranked kid who wants to be at Bama if the 5 star either will not make up his mind or just wants to build suspense at Alabamaís expense.

    Is it truly worth slow playing very good athletes by betting on the cum line that you will get the 5 star who can not commit or make up his mind?

    This obviously should have been placed on the recruiting board...

    No insight like those you asked but I'm certain the coaching staff factors this into how each position and kid is recruited.

    Sanders is not signed just yet. So hold them thoughts.
