Re: 2008 Alabama Commitments and Prospects List (Mid-season Update)

Here's an update (that will likely only be good for about a week :pDT_kap:)

  • It appears we may be cooling a bit on Chris Jordan. Some info that is out there seems to hint that we may either be done at RB or waiting to see if Ken Davis gets his grades, so that we can make a run at him.
  • I have not heard a lot about William Green lately and we may have actually cooled a bit on him.
WOW... thanks for the update RTO... if we're cooling on guys like Green and Jordan.. i guess that tell you what the coaching staff feels about our current commits... which can only be a good sign but i sure would hate to lose those two to another SEC school.. especially Green since it looks like Jordan may be headed to Clemson if not Bama...

I think we should be able to give out like 35 schollies! lol...

Who was the knucklehead that asked a few weeks ago why Reggie Ellis would want to go to Illinois since their coach didn't know how to coach?


Looks in mirror.



Oh yeah, that was me. Shows what I know. The Zooker is looking like a coach these days.

To anyone in the know:

What is the status of QB, are we done? Every week I see Casey Kelly's stats and wish we had room for 1 more QB. Our rep in Sarasota is a HS back judge and says the kid is better than Robert Marve by a long shot.

To piggyback on your question ... I've wondered if our recent QB struggles have made the coaches feel a little less "set" at that position for the near future ... and what are the chances we go after another signee?

We don't have the room, plus we feel really good about getting a great one in 2009. Kelly also may be a pro baseball prospect.

If we get Star this year and McCarron next year, then I think the staff will be pretty happy with where we sit at QB.

you are right. i think AJ McCarron is a definite Tide commit. i think he's been a long-time bama fan so he's a shoo-in to tuscaloosa.

Thanks for the article that is big news. It had started to look like Bama was cooling on him or vice versa for a little while now. I will make the change to the list and post this on the RB for all to see.

He's in the process of taking his official visits and is scheduled to announce his decision on or around December 17th.

That what I was thinking. It was either an AU camp, or the weekend where he visted Auburn for a visit, (.v. Kansas St).
