Recruiting Update...

I know many of you have heard about the great recruiting coach Saban has been doing. I thought I would just give you a little information and links about how the whole recruiting process is going. This past weekend we had many of the top high school players in the country make the trip to Tuscaloosa for the LSU game. The way we played and the atmosphere have already payed off. Yesterday, Barrett Jones a four star offensive lineman out of Memphis committed to the tide. And on Monday the Tide received a commitment from a 6'6 325 pound defensive linemen, DJ Fluker for the class of 2009. Add Jones to the other two big offensive line commitments of 5 star Tyler Love, and 4 star John Michael Boswell and our offensive line is beginning to look very good for the next couple of years. The 08 class is highlighted by two 5 star recruits Love and Burton Scott(ATH).

The 08 class is currently ranked 3rd in the nation with the opportunity to be the no. 1. We have several key prospects interested in the Tide. The most notable is 6'4 215 lb Julio Jones (pictured above) out of Foley, AL. He is currently listed as the no.1 overall player by ESPN. You can see many other high profile prospects we are targeting here.

Rivals has a very good article on Saban and his recruting.

Here is an up to date recruiting rankings.
