New, comments

Since our last issue, more new offers have gone out, a trio of recruits visited Alabama and one QB target is no longer considering Alabama. Let's dive in.

Bryant-Denny Stadium

Spring practice is finally here, and with comes new offers, visitors and recruits listing their top schools. There has been a lot going on in the recruiting world over the last week, so lets get started.

2019 4-star QB and Pinson, Alabama, native Bo Nix has picked up another offer, this time from the Tide. The dual-threat QB is an Auburn legacy and holds over 11 power five offers. Expect Auburn to land a verbal commitment from Nix down the road.

Chances Alabama lands Nix: Low

2018 4-star ATH Devon Williams has picked up a big offer from Alabama. Williams is from California, and both UCLA and USC look to be big competitors for the 6’4 ATH. Williams called Alabama a “game changing” offer. Williams is definitely somebody to keep a eye on, especially with Alabama recent success from the west coast with top recruits like Najee Harris and Jonah Williams.

Chances Williams commits to Alabama: Medium-High

2018 4-star DT Bobby Brown has picked up an offer from Alabama. The Arlington, Texas, native has a top three of Oklahoma, Alabama and Texas A&M. The 6-4 defensive tackle can play both outside and inside and is extremely athletic. Watch Alabama to make a push down the stretch.

Chances Alabama lands Brown: Medium

2018 4-star DT Rafiti Ghirmai has announced his top ten schools. The highly touted lineman recently visited Tuscaloosa and enjoyed his stay. Alabama looks to be in the drivers seat early on for the talented lineman from Texas.

Chances Alabama lands Ghirmai: Medium-High

2019 4-star WR Julian Barnett recently rocked the Alabama hat in his home state of Michigan. Barnett visited for the first day of spring practice with his teammates Devontae Dobbs and Tyrone Sampson. Barnett holds over 8 power five offers.

Chances Alabama lands a commitment from Barnett: Low-Medium

2018 4-star DL and Alabama target Tyrone Sampson visited Tuscaloosa a couple of days ago with his two teammates. Sampson is from Detroit, Michigan. The talented lineman is one of the best in the country and holds over 10 power five offers.

Chances Alabama lands Sampson: Medium

The biggets visitor on campus for the first day of practice was 2019 5-star OL Devontae Dobbs. Dobbs is the #1 OL in the 2019 class and is from Belleville, Michigan. The massive lineman holds over 20 offers from top programs in the nation and would be a huge boon to jump starting the 2019 class early.

Chances Alabama lands Dobbs: Medium

Another top 2019 target is in-state lineman Pierce Quick. The 4-star OL holds over 12 offers. The hometown favorite is Alabama, and he is Alabama’s to lose. Expect Quick to take other visits, but the Tide should be able to close in on the 6’5 prospect.

Chances Alabama lands Quick: High

2018 4-star ATH and QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson released his top 7 schools, and Alabama didn't make the cut. This is somewhat of a surprise, as DTR had Alabama in his top 11. His mom is an alumni of Michigan, so watch for them to close out on the electric playmaker from Bishop Gorman.

2018 in-state and 4-star DL prospect Jalen Cunningham will be taking a visit to Tuscaloosa this Thursday. The 4-star lineman is athletic, great against the run and solid pass rusher. Alabama looks to be the favorite. Cunningham holds over 11 offers.

Chances Alabama lands Cunningham: High

Unrelated note, Amari Cooper is the man.
