Bama moves from 3rd to 1st in nation with Friday’s Petitbon commitment


Texas A&M had held the No. 1 spot in the recruiting team rankings for many weeks, and a rash of top-notch pickups in the past two weeks had bumped Penn State up to the No. 2 spot behind the Aggies and ahead of the Crimson Tide.

But the 365-day race for the national recruiting title saw a change at the top around 6 p.m. on Friday when top 100 national prospect Richie Petitbon III committed to the Crimson Tide. They immediately bumped up to No. 1.
