The portal seems to be the place to get the additional OL and RB positions we need.

Would love to see Stewart transfer in. Add him and Williams next year to this group and it could be special!

Thanks Jess, really appreciate the overview and the work you put into Tidefans. Truly has to be a labor of love.
It was mentioned in a couple of instances where players are approached by other programs in an effort to get them to transfer away from Alabama. That`s yet another area in which the college game has apparently devolved and degraded. It`s a harsh and unpleasant reality, and " the terrain upon which we find ourselves currently deployed". As such, do we do the same thing, or does CNS try to maintain a semblance of " moral high ground" ?

The offense is going to be fantastic. Just a couple of things to work out on the OL.

The defense however is concerning, depending on who stays or leaves it could look drastically different than this year.

Yes, but those couple of things are huge. Nothing works well if the OL is struggling, as we saw last year at times and earlier this year.

Just on back end and at edge. I expect Lawson to come back so MLB will be very good and DL returns most guys with a lot of depth. Downs is a superstar at safety and Story got a lot of reps and Amos will be one corner and we have some highly rated corners who came in last year as well as this year's class. We will have six returning starters which is about the average for most Bama teams during the Saban era. When you re-load and have CNS on the defensive side I don't get concerned.

If we can get Domani Jackson out of the Portal, then we are completely set on the back end... :cool:

I feel really good about where we currently set (without Jackson). Getting Jackson would be additional icing on the cake...;)

I appreciate that everyone is confident with the secondary next year but potentially losing 4 starters is a pretty huge deal at positions where communication and experience are very important.

Agreed however we lost Battle, Hellams, Branch and Khyree Jackson last year and played much better this year. I do think they probably had something to do with Golding leaving and Steele coaching.
