While fans and the media are speculating about Nick Saban and whether he might go to Texas if Mack Brown resigns, there are two people who actually talked to the Alabama coach first hand.
Leonard Fournette, the No. 1 player in America who also happens to be uncommitted, met with Saban Wednesday. Fournette and his high school coach, St. Augustine (La.) coach Cyril Crutchfield, talked to Saban at length. Fournette told his local ABC affiliate that he left the room when the topic came to Saban possibly leaving. But Crutchfield asked the important question.
“My conversation with Saban, I think he is firmly committed to being the next Alabama football coach,” Crutchfield told the TV station.
Fournette is down to LSU and Alabama, and will announce his school choice on Jan. 2 at the Under Armour Game.Editor’s note: All rankings used by Saturday Down South refer to the 247Sports.com composite ranking.
