Alabama currently has 21 commitments for the class of 2012. Headlining the current commitments are defensive backs Eddie Williams and Geno Smith.
However, for this article, let’s take a look at three players on the recruiting wish list for the Crimson Tide heading into late December leading up to National Signing Day.
1. RB TJ Yeldon – Committed to Alabama yesterday: Yeldon has been a longtime commitment for the Auburn Tigers. However, with Gus Malzahn leaving for Arkansas State, you better believe that had a factor in this tremendous running back’s decision to decommit. Yeldon has all the tools to be a great SEC running back in the future. Now that he has changed his commitment to Alabama, will he stay with the Tide on National Signing Day?
2. QB Jameis Winston – Committed to Florida State: The in-state prospect has had all Alabama fans in a tizzy because of his early commitment to Florida State. Winston is a stud baseball player who will likely be drafted very high in this year’s draft in June; so, it’s possible that neither Alabama nor FSU will get a chance to get this kid on campus. But Alabama would like nothing else than to steal Winston away and make him a Tide commitment on signing day. It is very possible we see a switch here.
3. LB/DE Jordan Jenkins – Currently not committed: Jenkins, a Georgia native, is said to be down to Florida and Alabama as his top two schools. Jenkins is a freak athlete 6-3, 245lbs, and he would play the Jack linebacker position that Courtney Upshaw has played throughout his career. Jenkins is athletic enough to put his hand down at end or be a rushing linebacker. Jenkins will be a dynamite player wherever he chooses at the next level.
