A-Day Brings Top Recruiting Targets to Town
The Alabama Crimson Tide football team has delivered one of the top recruiting classes in the country in each year of Nick Saban’s tenure and hopes to set the tone for the 2014 class this Saturday with the A-Day spring scrimmage game.
The Tide are off to a start, slower than in years past, presumably due to the staff being more selective with their choices to fill each of the coveted spots. Alabama currently holds just four commitments at the time of this story being written, but the quality is unparalleled as 3 of the 4 prospects committed are considered top 100 players by ESPN, with the highest being Northridge High School standout Bo Scarbrough at 17th.
However, it is not just the 2014 class in which Saban’s staff is making a splash. Alabama has already landed three verbal commitments for the 2015 signing class in running back DeSherrius Flowers, defensive end Mekhi Brown, and safety Deionte Thompson.
ESPN Tide Nation Recruiting Analyst Greg Ostendorf joined The Game on Wednesday night and said the scrimmage has turned into a great recruiting tool for the Tide and will deliver another strong showing of top targets, including plenty from in-state.
