Nico and I both tend to stay away from recruiting stuff, worrying more about how the players we do land work out once they get here than the guys we might land before they've played a down of college ball. But considering the agressive focus and nature of Nick Saban and his staff when it comes to recruiting, this season my ears have perked up a little more when I hear talk of "prospects" and "official visits." So here are a few links regarding recruits and commitments, and be sure to check in with Clay every so often for updates.
- Clay just updated his recruiting guide, so go check it out to see who has been offered, if (and where) they are committed, and some video links.
- The Capstone Report was all over recruiting this weekend.
- al.com has this list of Bama commitments, though I wouldn't rely to heavily on it. They seem to lag about a week behind on everything. Stick with Rivals.com instead.
- The Mobile Press-Register takes a look at how Alabama fared with the recruits who visited the campus this weekend.
- Also, check in on the ESPN Briefing Room for more recruiting tidbits.
Ladies, you're on notice: The bar has been raised.
