    Recruiting Update After the AllStar Games

    It looks like we will get to 29, which means five more signees to what we have. Donít know how, just thatís what is being said.

    Banks was a surprise in the fact that he signed back in December but we kept it private so he could announce at the allstar game. So, we are at 24 signees.

    Commits-4
    Bogle
    Robinson
    Young
    Williams

    Many have long said Williams wonít be in this class, so Iím assuming we are at 3 commits, for all intents and purposes.

    I expect Young to stick even though he will take visits.

    Robinson has been quiet since Locksley left, but he is a priority.

    Whoís left?

    Sophser- for the past month he has hammered the idea of he and his brother playing together. LSU is the only school offering that. If this is true, he wonít be at Bama. Previous info said Bama led. So we will see.

    Tíotoío- appears Bama is in great shape. Not getting Dean helped and our ILB depth is a plus.

    Pickering- we are recruiting and he legit likes Bama but I donít think he can tell MSU no.

    Fuller- FSU commit scheduled to visit but def a backup plan to Young and Sophser.

    Definitely out: Pola-Gates, Dent, Pickens

    What a class. Ok, for the last five spots my revised wish list to finish:

    Bogle
    Robinson
    Young
    Sophser / Pickering
    Tíotoío

    Man, that would be something.

    Williams looked like a player; hope he sticks. Many were raving about this athleticism

    I feel like how hard the staff goes after sophser depends how much ground they can make up with Pickering and fuller. Have to get at least one more inside guy in this class and hold into young.

    My take is:
    Young
    Fuller
    Bogle
    pickering or sophser
    To'oto'o

    Coin flip on keeping Robinson

    Considering the uncertainty ( I guess? ) surrounding Sopsher and I think other factors apparently from the all star experiences, Young`s a VERY significant commitment. I would expect he`ll continue to be recruited as though he`s uncertain as a signee.

    247Sports has Bama at 28 commits. How many more can you sign? You guys have landed 24 4*'s that's remarkable!

    Only the GOAT knows that for sure. You should know that by now, DB.

    The numbers game was already going to be tight, but the players coming back for their senior year is going to make it even more of issue than already expected.

    And yes, I know only Saban truly knows the number of scholarship players. Just an observation.

    Agreed. They had to think Raekwon was gone. They probably thought Diggs would stay. I think about half way through the season they knew Q and Josh were gone so they had planned for it late in the process. If Mack decides to stay that will make the numbers even tighter. Who else do we think may stay?
