    Alabama’s setback in the national championship game did not carry over to its 2019 recruiting class. Signing 27 players between the early and late signing periods, Alabama claimed the top spot in the 2019 TideFans.com/NARCAS recruiting rankings, narrowly edging out Georgia in the process. Alabama’s stunning class […]

    Thanks Jess, always appreciate your assessment. Appears to be another outstanding class, but probably lost a couple to coaching changes which would be expected.

    Thank you. I expected Battle to be ranked higher in your system and you did not list Hentges as a departing TE (huge loss), but I appreciate the perspective.

    Nice write up, Jess. I really enjoy reading your analysis each week.

    Seems Saban got a great class this year... but really wish we would have gotten Bogle and Henry T. I understand their choices though. Our coaching turnover hurt us on those two. I am just glad BAMA signed most of the players in December before the coaching turnover.

    Hopefully the new coaches can develop the players and more players can get more play time.

    Got goose bumps reading about the OL recruiting haul!!!

    That bodes well for our future with the studs we have at running back and and a legit QB under center!!!

    I know the staff initially had Ebiogbe slated as a Jack OLB. If that projection sticks, does that impact the DL rating down and LB up or does it stay about the same since the OLB group will likely be waiting their turn due to the players already in the system at OLB and more than likely Ebiogbe wouldn't be in the rotation much as a DL/DE till he adds a bit of bulk if that's his new projection?

    Nice write up, thanks for what you do. Another top notch class to help Bama continue competing for titles year after year.

    Missing out on a couple of guys was a bit of a bummer but when you actually look at the class it's excellent.

    The best part of these write ups is reading them in 2-3 years. Some things are spot on and some things are not so spot on (which is to be expected).

    Great write-up and great class. Do we have room for everyone to fit in without any special massaging (gray/blue shirts)?

    Thank you for putting the signings into perspective based on position needs. I hope the development of existing and new players gets turned up a notch with the new coaches in the fold.

    Just an oversight, now corrected. Thanks!

    I think he's going to outgrow Jack regardless, or at least what we think of as Jack size (~6-4, 240-ish). But we have two kinds of Jacks, really. The Jennings type and the Anoma type. 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.
