    Are we still evaluating taking a grad transfer TE? Maybe a LB too? When would that take place, after the end of the semester?

    Same here. I've watched that game 4 or 5 times just to see Q absolutely destroy that O-line all night.

    i just don't understand why he'd hitch his wagon to will wade when it's 50/50 at best that he'll even be the coach there next year.

    and memphis seems to be slow playing him for another higher ranked kid whose name i can't recall .

    I never really agreed with or understood the previous two staffs offering these 5 star guys from different regions.Those dudes never come to Bama. The odds of us pulling a 5 star from Napa, CA are... low. I don't know maybe one day we will learn.

    We can pull a 3 star or maybe even a low ranked 4 star from somewhere outside AL or the border states but those 5 star, top 30 type players we have never been able to get. Shit the only one in my lifetime I can remember us being close on was maybe T Ferg? Shit Drew Timme might be the second closest we've come to getting one of those guys and he wasn't a 5 star.

    I think the only all-conference players we have signed from the Hobbs era on is Trevor Releford and maybe Retin? Feel like we should focus on dominating our region first, then work out. If we see a dude like Shackelford that we like that is under the radar, sure go after him, but these guys from halfway (or fully) across the country that are 5 stars and can go anywhere are the longest of long shots.

    There's an old quote I'm reminded of reading this. I think it's Twain:

    Yeah didn't he come from JUCO though? Maybe I am remembering that wrong but good call on him. Blast from the past. IIRC many schools could not get him admitted but may be remembering that wrong.

    Yeah you're not wrong I just feel like you waste a lot of time and energy on prospects you have a 1% chance at. Target the kids that might come to Bama and lock em up imo. Oh well we will see I guess, but if you're a 5* from CA with zero ties to the state or region, why would you come to Bama?

    Tried to go to UCLA, couldn’t get a passing SAT score. Went to prep school. Tried to go to NC State, NCAA said no. Went to JUCO. Came to Alabama as like a 23 year old Sophomore.

    I could see Oats trying to get somebody out of the Michigan/New York area and using connections he has up there but I agree on the other stuff. Offering some cali 5 star is pointless

    What do you think about Jayden Stone? I dont know anything about the kid but it doesnt seem like there has been a whole lot of interest in him

    I love Jayden Stone but he seems to have very little ties to AL other than attending prep school here. He is Australian, and I believe he is changing prep schools to go somewhere in Kansas next year. I would love him, I think he has NBA potential but I dunno how much of a chance we have with him. I will say his recruitment has been super quiet not just with us but with everyone, so it is hard to know who is in with him. He can really score, had he remained in AL he would have been the best player in the state next class imo.

    His dad is from Alabama though, so we've got that going for us. I think he's a kid that could see his stock climb quite a bit once more people see him.

    Seems things have changed since last night. I am hearing that Pettway has had a change of heart and is expected to stay barring anything unforeseen happening. That is a huge win for coach Oats and Alabama. Pettway is a top 5 recruiter in the country and will be the staple in the south recruiting wise. I’ll keep y’all posted.

    I don’t understand why Saban offered Jonah Williams and Najee Harris. We’ve only ever pulled guys like Prince Hall and Jimmy Barnes out of California. No shot they sign with us. -Leonard, probably
