Lance Thompson: 2008 Recruiter of the Year

Alabama's Outside Linebackers coach, Lance Thompson, was named the 2008 recruiter of the year by

Coach Thompson was the primary recruiter for Mark Barron, Glenn Harbin, Destin Hood, Star Jackson, Julio Jones, Robert Lester, Ivan Matchett, Jermaine Preyear, and Burton Scott. He also helped out with Jerrell Harris.

That give's him a total of two five-star, six four-star and two three-star signees. Just his recruiting efforts alone tide Auburn's five-star list and signed two more four-stars than them. If compared to Tennessee's class, he signed two to their zero five-stars and two more four-stars.

I know all the numbers do not mean anything until they get out on the field. Thompson's got some good talent to work with. As defensive coordinator at UCF he produced a pair of All-Conference USA First-Team selections. We should really look forward to what is is going to do with Jerrell Harris, Don'ta Hightower, and Courtney Upshaw.
