* Blake Barnett and the other Tide commits have really been recruiting Damien Harris at Under-Armour practices and events this week. Harris has been seen wearing some Alabama gear but that means absolutely nothing.

** Daylon Charlot's story is a bit sad. He really really likes Alabama and committed last February. He later decommitted but recommitted a few weeks ago. The Louisiana native re-decommitted this week. Did you catch all that?

Unconfirmed reports are that he is getting pressure from his aunt, who currently takes care him, to go to LSU. I am not sure if she is his legal guardian but I'm guessing his family life is a little complicated. The 4-star plays slot receiver which will be a position of great need for the Tide in 2015.

I hate seeing a kid forced to go to a local school because of selfish family members. A conversation with Landon Collins would probably help him make up his mind. But he needs to decide soon because Bama will have to move on.
