    Bama signed 12 OL in the last three classes at a 0.9449 average.
    UGA signed 13 OL in the last three classes at a 0.9434 average.

    Yeah well Ohio State has never signed a lineman who had less than five stars and a .99 rating.

    What about the current class?

    These are valid points and the most relevant though.

    Playing behind an elite OL and ability to play for championships is a wash between Bama/UGA.

    Bama singed Trey Sanders in '19 but UGA also has Zamir. The decision is either play with/behind Sanders who is only separated by one class or play with/behind White who is separated by two classes.

    We will know in February. But I would imagine UGA's average will definitely jump ahead once this class is complete.

    Bama probably only taking 2 OL in this class and the one we already have on board sucks.

    He's probably not as bad as his rating would suggest. I know Clemson wanted him, too.

    Not sure. These seem to be the top 3 guys on our board.

    4* Andrew Gentry, OT #51
    4* Chris Morris, OG #84
    3* Xavier Hill, OG #535

    And the coaches love McLaughlin for whatever reason, so I bet he sticks.

    but at least the shitty HS teammate will still probably be better than Evans in college

    This is clearly taking a shitty player to land a good player. That is strange for Saban. Dropping him later like you're implying will happen doesn't seem like a great idea if you're trying to please Evans.

    Tim Watts making me dizzy.

    “It goes without saying that Bama likes George since they took his commitment and the UA staff sees him as a huge upside kid (Similar potential to Evan Neal and similar size) who was right at the top of the board for OTs this year. He's a young guy, will turn 17 first year in college. He camped at UA last year and made a big impression on the staff. Kid likes to compete and has a mean streak. Which is important at UA. Competition is steep. The S&C program at UA is going to change his body a lot along with him maturing. He will arrive tomorrow for camp. He was recruited by Karl Scott and Kyle Flood.

    There has been the obvious link between George and Zachary Evans but there should be no confusion, George was a take the whole time and a priority for Bama staff. There is no doubt that George and Evans are close but they were recruited separately and will both make their own decisions. But this obviously doesn't hurt UA's chances with Evans.

    As for Evans, the early reports on his visit are that UA is a major player for his commitment. The Tide staff has done a good job there and the visit this week has only strengthened their cause for landing the elite type RB.”

    i think he wants to be BMOC more than winning. Loaded depth charts for UGA/Bama will scare him off, as well as other 5 stars possibly committing.

    A&M and UT have no backs on the roster he will be scared of.

    Who are the "recruiting powers"? I'm also not familiar with who he's a take for and who he isn't so I can't even answer that.

    Seems weird to judge his talent based on whether he's a take for someone or not. That is very subjective. Especially when teams take players who have mutual interest. If he doesn't show interest in a "recruiting power" because he wants to play earlier(or whatever reason), that's irrelevant to how good he is. Teams like Alabama and Clemson have been known to target like 1 guy at a position they want if they feel good about them, that doesn't mean no one else can be elite. That logic doesn't make much sense to me :idk:.

    Ranked similar to, or lower than, George (430) that we’ve signed since 09

    Chance Warmack (426), Anthony Steen (467), Kellen Williams (596), Darius McKellar (626), Austin Shepherd (640), Caleb Gulledge (643), Bradley Bozeman (471), Montel McBride (430), Matt Womack (623), Hunter Brannon (943)

    We’ve processed more before signing. I’m not saying this isn’t a package deal, I’m just saying we always sign some very low ranking OL. Most never amount to anything, but a few wound up being pretty damn good.

    After reading Milton’s dad’s interview following the Bama visit I felt like we were the leader. But maybe he talks glowingly about everybody as is typical in ‘cruitin.
