When it comes to recruiting, it’s been awhile since Alabama has chased any program–but it appears the Crimson Tide will be locked in a fun-to-watch battle with Texas A&M this upcoming recruiting year. Right now, The Aggies are No. 1 and the Crimson Tide are No. 2. Both programs have hogged the talent so far and with the Texas Longhorns rebuilding, don’t be surprised if the Aggies have enough mojo this year to make this a very interesting battle for the 2015 mythical recruiting title. Alabama has won four of them in a row.
It never hurts to have seven players who are rated four-star prospects or better, but that’s exactly what Alabama has. The group is led by defensive end Mekhi Brown, who has been on board with Alabama for quite some time.
