Fox Sports Ranks Tide Recruiting Class #1

New, comment

Fox Sports ranks the top 25 recruiting class, and the Tide is at the top:

What is there not to love about this class? Alabama signed a slew of versatile athletes and top notch prospects at just about every conceivable position. They wanted an athletic quarterback and got Star Jackson. They needed big time play makers at wide receiver and got Melvin Ray, Chris Jackson and Destin Hood. Burton Scott could star on either side of the ball at receiver or cornerback. Mark Barron could star at receiver, safety or grow into a linebacker. Devonta Bolton could play either receiver or linebacker.

The Tide did well in the trenches with a great one in Tyler Love (OT). On the other side of the ball they have committed seven defensive linemen, including 385 pounds tackle Junior College transfer Terrance Cody as well as some athletic ends in Courtney Upshaw, Michael Williams and Dont'a Hightower. Damien Square has a chance to be an outstanding outside linebacker and Alonzo Lawrence and Robby Green are two gems at cornerback. Incredibly, Alabama is still waiting on signing day decisions from Julio Jones (WR), Jerrell Harris (LB), T.J. Bryant (CB), Robert Quinn (DE), Mark Ingram (RB), and Marcel Dareus (DT).

God I can't wait 'til signing day...
