    I have been there before and I can say it was a fun school to visit, but that is insane.
    Frieze is a heck of a recruiter, has the fans and prospective recruits fired up, and has that program on the upswing. I don't think there's a snowball's chance they become a contender for the SEC crown, let alone the NC (he'll get a few top-notch recruits, but never enough talent and depth across the board), but he's definitely getting some interest from more talented players than expected.
    Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

      • OT Austin Golson decommitted from FSU today coming off his weekend visit to Florida State. Had visited Ole Miss the weekend before.

        Says he is down to Ole Miss and FSU.

        Ole Miss is setting up for a monster finish.

                Never saw this before on Rivals.. There is a tab you can use to view any coach from each program and see what verbals they landed and who they are recruiting.

                      I hope so! We're in the hunt for about 10 uncomitted 4 & 5 stars. I have no idea which of them, if any, we'll get, but I think we'll probably land 2-4 of them.

                        Of the 27 Alabama players drafted since 2007, 16 were ranked 3-stars or lower as recruits by either Rivals or Scout.

                          Rather surpising. We've had several unheralded recruits that blossomed. Marcel Darius, Barrett Jones, Chance Warmack, and Mark Ingram were all just average recruits that nobody really expected greatness from. Rashad Johnson was a 2-star walkon for us who didn't get a single D1 offer yet went on to be a team captain, All-American, and high draft pick. I think Saban does a great job finding those diamonds in the rough that will exceed all expectations and developing those kids, but every school has a few like that. Andrew Luck wasn't a top 50 recruit, and RGIII and Johnny Manziel were only 3 star recruits.

                          It's interesting to look at the ESPN150 from past years and see how many future superstars weren't even on the list or were at least nowhere near the top. Lots of 5 star, "can't miss" recruits are never heard of again, and lots of guys nobody expected much from turn into superstars.

                          • Apparently Bama is making a strong run at A'Shawn Robinson now and may be ahead of USC as his top out of state choice per the Texas 247 board.

                            Bama just needs to chill for real. They don't need every GD top ranked defensive recruit!

                              LOL! Yes we do! There's no such thing as having enough talent. Too many other good teams out there who'll gladly kick our butt and have the talent to do so on any given Saturday.

                                      If they grab A'Shawn, will they still take EV or will 'spots' be full at that position?

                                            I "think" we'd take both, but not sure how many spots we still have open. I doubt we get either, but who knows.

                                              • The rest of the top 247

                                                Staff picks for uncommitted members of the top 247. They pick Alvin Kamara to Bama. I don't get how they can pull the #7 and #8 RB and then get the #3 APB??? And didn't they tell Derrick Henry he'd be a RB? Or is he a LB?

                                                They also pick 2 more recruits to UCLA and are split on Fitts. And that doesn't include EV. Jesus I wish they'd fill up soon.
