Alabama Football Recruiting Update: A-Day Visitors

Who will be the future Tide stars? - USA TODAY Sports

Class of 2015

In case you are not familiar with the recruiting process, it is an on-going operation that never ends. Game days during the fall are always big for unofficial visits but players do not get to spend as much time with coaches for obvious reasons. Spring, however, is an ideal time for recruits to check out how practices and programs are run.

A lot of these young prospects have quite a dilemma on their hands this Saturday as both Alabama (1pm CT) and Auburn (2pm CT) will be having their spring game.

Several 2015 recruits as well as a few from 2016 and 2017 will be at Alabama's A-Day as well as those who have already committed for 2015. Below are a few highlights of confirmed 2015 visitors:
