    I still think we would lose some players to transfer by August.
    With two TE's leaving and James missing the first 4 games it did make picking up another TE in this class a priority and I would imagine coach is going to go after some that were listed. James will return in game 5 and be a force IMO.

    We do have a very talented TE already committed in the 2020 class.

    Re: Grad Transfer Recruiting

    Coach mentioned that he might consider a seasoned TE in the portal if the opportunity presented itself. The only problem with landing these transfer guys is that I would expect most of them are leaving for more playing time. They would have to come to Alabama to compete and not sure more playing time is written in the stars for any transfer to Tuscaloosa. I mean, we do have a lethal passing game and excellent QB play that sent our star TE to the League a year early. We are also going to be in the playoff every year so competing for championships is a definite plus. Bama has also been sending a tremendous amount of players to the League regardless of position because they are developed and well coached. There are a lot of pluses but are you willing to work for it? A bigtime player like Wheatley or the kid from FSU could really benefit at a program like ours but it really depends on their personality. I'm not sure lower rated guys would be optimistic about competing for playing time with the studs we already have here.

    ... nothing inherently wrong with that assumption, but I can recall a few that have risen to the occasion, e.g., Jake Coker, Richard Mullaney, Gehrig Dieter

    Amen to all three of those guys!

    I had no idea until the playoffs that Dieter had made the Chiefs roster.

    Any word on possible transfers?

    I'd say it is highly unlikely. Saban said he was open to take any player that transfers in and able to "contribute immediately." So the guy that is not supremely talented or has to sit out a year is not going to get a look regardless of how much we need to bolster a particular position like TE.

    The staff is planning on taking transfers. Some guys that would be ideal might not have announced their intentions at this point.

    Re: Grad Transfer Recruiting

    My assumption is they may take a TE, LB, punter, or Dl that could see playing time.

    All positions need temporary help until some freshmen are ready to play.

    Interesting. When is the deadline for portal entrance? I also wonder if there are some guys Bama recruited in the past that regret their decision to go elsewhere that have feelers out about mutual interest. How would they go about that process anyway?

    There’s no deadline. A player can transfer whenever he wants.

    Looks like a good replacement for Halen Hentges.
