Alabama Crimson Tide National Signing Day Predictions


Alabama Crimson Tide

      • SEC TEAM RANK: 1st
      • LAST YEAR’S FINISH: 1st in SEC, 1st in nation.
      • NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: OL Cameron Robinson (No. 4 in nation)
      • FINAL TARGETS: LB Rashaan Evans (No. 15); DE Lorenzo Carter (No. 18).
      • WHAT SURPRISES LIE AHEAD?: Alabama is Alabama. It seems like a simple enough sentence … so you can’t let your guard down. Having coveted 5-star LB Chad Thomas (a Miami native and ‘Canes commit) in town this past weekend is something to keep an eye on, though Thomas is a diehard ‘Canes fan and is part of the hometown pipeline. Also, if Evans or Carter pick Alabama, those would be upsets, as Evans is from Auburn and Carter seems to be heading to the home-state school (Georgia). There’s a slight chance Bama may lose one or two of their lower-ranked prospects (like Chris Williams on Tuesday, who flipped to UCF), but with the size and depth of this class, it won’t affect the ranking. Look for Alabama to win its fourth consecutive mythical national title.
      • SDS WEDNESDAY ‘DRAMA’ RATING (1 TO 5): We’ll go with a 2. Evans will provide the biggest drama with his Alabama-Auburn pick, but all in all there are several other SEC schools that have a lot more at stake today than Alabama. Let’s face it, this is one of the best recruiting classes in recent memory. All positions are squared away with top rated talent.

Editor’s note: All team and individual ratings referenced by Saturday Down South are according to’s composite ranking, which averages all services.

  • Fairly confident that Marlon Humphrey was the final “gotta have” for us. Carter or Evans would be nice pickups simply to stick it to Georgia and that “other” school. Otherwise, they’re just icing on the cake. The commits on the defensive side of the ball are already nothing short of mind-blowing.
