Alabama once again in position to win mythical national title


It’s like Groundhog’s Day, or an audio message stuck on repeat.

Alabama is in great position to once again win a mythical national title in recruiting, though the competition is a bit stiffer this time around. The Crimson Tide have seven prospects with four stars attached to their names (or five). They already have a diverse group that addresses needs on the defensive line, in the offensive backfield, in the defensive backfield and on the offensive line.

It’s just a solid group of eight commitments already, and the No. 2 class in the nation, battling No. 1 Texas A&M and No. 3 LSU for that coveted No. 1 spot. Since New Years Day, it has been a back and forth affair among the three SEC West powers.

The latest pickup for the Crimson Tide came on March 6 when they landed defensive end Anfernee Jennings out of Dadeville (Ala.). He was their third in-state pickup. Prime targets like DT Daron Payne, OL Richie Petitbon and JUCO No. 1 prospect Jovon Robinson–among others–could be on their way soon, too, which would likely push the ‘Tide to the top.
