    I agree with your assessment 100%. (I usually don't even agree with myself)
    Things look pretty good. Time will tell.
    I can't wait to see the new guys at A-Day.
    There should be some battles in Spring Practice.

    Thanks for the write up..... I have been reading them for 18 years and they are usually spot on.

    Much obliged, Jess. Thanks for the great wrap-up. I'm feeling better about this team for the '19 season.

    It was apparent we lost a few guys due to the coaching attrition, but overall the current haul look promising.

    Jess,
    Great job as always.
    Question. I realize how fortunate we are to have someone like you do the kind of analyses to which we have become accustomed. I would like to know how Georgia's class (and perhaps some others) stacks up using the same kind of criteria you have used with future Tiders. Do you know of any source we can go to to get that kind of in-depth summary of those other recruiting classes.
    I know we came out ranked number one, but how close was Georgia player by player?

Sometimes you get a Jennings/Devall/Saunders that has enough quickness to drop down and get around the tackle, but typically the guys that can do that are the thinner-built players.
    Yup. Living in Tuscaloosa we get to see a lot of the guys out and about around town and it is AMAZING how some of them look Day 1 on campus vs. a round through the 4th quarter program. Seeing them without all the game gear you really see the transformation.

    One of the things that has helped my sanity in the 20 years of TideFans is transitioning from obsessing over recruiting to obsessing over player development. Until and unless a player signs on the dotted line, I don't care who they are or how good they're projected to be. Once we get'em, though, I have learned to trust the process. We've got a lot of Jimmy's and Joe's in this class that I trust CNS & the new staff to mold into SEC= and then NFL-caliber players. Jess' detailed analysis gives me great hope!

    One of my favorite quotes from Coach Bryant was when a reporter asked him about how good one of his recruiting classes was, to which he replied, "Well you know you can't look at a rabbit and tell how fast he can run".

    One thing I have learned during Saban's coaching tenure is he gets a lot of fast rabbits .

    If their speed made a difference both those coaches would hunt with a stop watch.
    Evaluation was one of the top elements that made both (CPB & CNS) great coaches.
    This recruiting class will make us proud.
