Roll Bama Roll provides updates as recruits sign their letters of intent and officially join the 2014 recruiting class.

Alright, folks. The time has come for the parade of the committed to officially bind themselves to the university.  While NSD may be a bit of a quiet affair today, the quality of this class should not be underestimated.  I've gotten the sense that many in the fan base are feeling blasé due to an expected general lack of breaking news.  Make no mistake, this class has the potential to be as good or better than any class ever signed at Bama.  The fact that such a historic class could potentially be assembled with little to no signing day theatrics is a testament to this Bama staff.

Alabama currently has 26 commitments and may potentially sign 1-2 additional players when all is said and done. Here are a few notable announcements that we will be keeping our eyes on today:

Time (ET, subject to change) Player Star rating, overall ranking (Per 247Sports Composite) Potential choices
10 a.m. No. 36 DT Elisha Shaw Three, No. 465 Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss
11:15 a.m., ESPNU No. 1 OG Damien Mama Four, No. 38 Alabama, BYU, USC
11:45 a.m., ESPNU No. 1 OLB Rashaan Evans Five, No. 15 Alabama, Auburn, Georgia
2:45 p.m., ESPNU No. 2 WDE Lorenzo Carter Five, No. 18 Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU
TBA No. 24 OG Jordan Sims Three, No. 437 Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss
