Re: Latest Alabama 2007 Commitments and Prospects List

Offense

Quarterback

Nick Fanuzzi (Bama commit)- Overwhelmed on visit and committed on 1/22. Solid pick-up. Fits the taller description of a CNS QB.


Running Back


Jeramie Griffin- Bama out in front. Unconditional offer? Grades?

Demetrius Goode (Bama commitment)- great back, "can fry the eggs"

Joe McKnight (LSU/USC heavy faves, Bama entering picture)- McKnight's interest in Alabama stems from one thing: Nick Saban. He grew up watching CNS and if CNS was still at LSU, he'd be going there for certain. McKnight can do it all, and the comparison to Reggie Bush is not all that far off. If McKnight visits, we have a shot. However, it would take a coup of epic proportions. May or may not visit on 2/2.

Jamar Taylor (enrolled at Bama)- Jamar Taylor graduated early and has enrolled at Alabama in order to go through spring drills. He will start out at RB, but could tack on the weight and move to FB, as he split time in HS at FB and RB.

Noel Devine- visited 1/29. Quiet kid. Missed FSU visit, looking to reschedule and visit WVU.

Wide Receiver

Brandon Gibson (Bama, Aub, So. Car)- loved his visit and will make his announcement on NSD. I like the good guys here. ***1/23

Marquis Maze (Bama, UT)- visit went well to Bama.

Offensive Line


William Vlachos (Bama greyshirt commit)- firm.

Patrick Crump (Bama greyshirt commit)- firm.

Nick Fairley (Aub leader)- Another kid that I don't have a ton of info for. He's a tweener and could be a DE, DT, OG, OT, or TE depending on how much weight he could put on and still move. I am uncertain on how firm of an offer he has.

DEFENSE

Defensive Linemen

Luther Davis- (Bama commit)- firm, a little work to do in classroom, but should make it.

Nick Gentry (Bama commit)- firm to Bama.

Alfred McCullough (Bama commit)- no more visits, firm.

Kerry Murphy (Bama commit)- Needs a good test score.

Alex Watkins (Bama commit)- I can't say enough about this kid. AW has withstood tremendous pressure from the Viles and never blinked. AW could really be the steal of the class. Tremendous potential at end.

Chavis Williams (Bama commit)- firm.

Linebacker

Rolando McClain (Bama commit)- the beast is 100% firm to Bama and should see early PT as a freshman. RM wants to play MLB and should get the chance in the 3-4. Hall and McClain both in the middle makes me feel very good. Ratings of him continue to soar.

Jennings Hester (Bama commit)- has never waivered from his commitment and CNS appears to like his potential as an ILB in the 3-4. I would bet on a RS year.

Pat Lazear (Bama/WVU)- does he have an offer? If he does, he's ours.

Defensive Backs


Chris Lett (Bama commit)- CL is ready to go to T-town now after his visit. He is qualified now and is just a tremendous athlete. Coach Smart likes him at corner, but if that doesn't work out, Lett could play safety or grow into a LB.

Elliot McGaskin (Bama greyshirt soft)- firm.

Kareem Jackson (Bama commit)- came out of nowhere, but is a very quick corner that could return kicks. Solid, physical likes to play press man.

Michael Ricks (Bama, OSU)- Grades may not be in order.

Re: Latest Alabama 2007 Commitments and Prospects List

Well you know im a DB man RTO so here is my question, whats going on with Michael Ricks have we stopped showing interest or is he still on the radar? I really hope we can get a safety who can contribute next year or at least push Carter and Rashad Johnson.

forgot to mention him....he's visiting this weekend. We'll see what he and the staff has to say afterwards. I'm hoping his grades are in order, too.

Re: Latest Alabama 2007 Commitments and Prospects List

RTO ,
What do you think about the possible visit of Miami QB commit Nick Fanuzzi
on 1/19 ? Do you think CNS is very interested in this young man or is part of a
"if you shop , we shop" deal ? Thanks in advance and for all the info & thoughts you give us....

Hmmm.....thanks for bringing that to my attention. I thought it was rumor up to this point, but there may be something to it. I liked Fanuzzi early on. Need to check up on senior film.

Edit: Just watched some senior film.....and I'm very impressed. Honestly, Marve or Fanuzzi, we can't go wrong. They are both very similar. Because of the height advantage, Fanuzzi is looking very good to me right now.

Any truth to the rumors that Saban visited a certain Barn commit from Brewton?
Yes, Jared Cooper, an OL. I don't think the kid has been offered from Bama. I believe he's a greyshirt for Aub.

Re: Latest Alabama 2007 Commitments and Prospects List

Do we have room for a guy like that with Vlachos and Crump already taking a grey?
I honestly have no clue how many we'll take now, and if Vlachos or Crump might come in on a regular scholly now. If CNS and co. want a recruit badly enough, room is going to be made.

It may be that there will be more than 17 scholarships available and with over signing for attrition it could be 20 or more signed. We have some very "soft verbals" that may not sign for what ever reasons. This is going to be very interesting to see how it all shakes out.

Center-Ryan Pugh from Hoover? I thought he was a senior this year. Is there no enterest? I didn't see him listed anywhere. At one time I thought he was among 100 best in nation.

Re: Latest Alabama 2007 Commitments and Prospects List

I believe RTO and CS have tag-teamed the Alabama recruiting scene into submission. This is better than the recruiting pay sites. Thank you for your efforts!

Vlachos is a quality player and I have seen him play a lot. Against Hoover he pretty much dominated Kerry Murphy.
