Alabama landed another elite prospect Wednesday in 4-star defensive end Dallas Turner. Prior to Wednesday, Turner was one of the nation’s highest-rated uncommitted prospects.

Following Turner’s commitment, Alabama running backs coach Charles Huff became the nation’s top ranked recruiter. Huff is Turner’s primary recruiter, and he is also Devonta Smith’s (committed to Alabama on Monday) primary recruiter. Huff is also the primary recruiter for Alabama commits in 5-star offensive tackle commit JC Latham and 5-star wide receiver Jacorey Brooks. Three of the 4 prospects are from Florida, with Smith (Cincinnati, OH) being the only non-Floridian.

Huff is also on some other highly ranked prospects around the country and could cement his ranking following National Signing Day.

Nick Saban made the big hire in Huff, who came from Mississippi State. Huff served as MSU’s assistant head coach, run-game coordinator and running backs coach. He boasts 16 years of coaching experience ranging from big-time college football and the NFL.

Huff is largely credited with recruiting and developing Saquon Barkley at Penn State.

Currently, Alabama has the nation’s No. 12 overall recruiting class with 10 commitments. Tennessee, Florida and LSU are all ranked ahead of Alabama’s class in the top 10, but there’s plenty of time for Saban and company to make a major move upward.
