ROLLTIDE ROLL BAMA THIS WEEKEND LETS GET IT— Tomeka Holmes (@TomekaHolmes504) January 24, 2020
As previously predicted, OL Marcus Henderson will not be visiting. [Bama doesn’t have time for sight-seers.]
Perhaps more importantly, a pair of 2021 5-stars will be in town on unofficial visits. Offensive tackle Amarius Mims (Cochran, GA) and WkDE Dylan Brooks (Roanoke, AL) have already Tweeted out their plans and appear to already be bonding. A commitment from one of them this weekend is not likely but possibly in the near future.

North Carolina senior tight end Carl Tucker and family are also in T-town to check out the campus for a possible grad-transfer. They arrived Friday evening.
NICK SABAN ON THE ROAD
The Alabama head man was jet-setting across the south on Friday. He was spotted in middle Georgia to see 2021 high 4-star OT Terrence Ferguson in Peach County, GA.
Great to meet @AlabamaFTBL Coach Nick Saban today. Great things going on in Peach County... Go Trojans! pic.twitter.com/GJUtHT7BC2— Ken Hartley (@peachprincipal1) January 24, 2020
He also swung by Savannah, TN to see 4-star TE Hudson Wolfe.
Really appreciate Coach Saban and @KJJFlood stopping by school today!! #RollTide pic.twitter.com/rEVkyMxroy— Hudson Wolfe (@HudsonWolfe80) January 24, 2020
Bama has a really good shot at getting both these prospects to sign.
Upon returning to T-town, Saban still had time to drop in on American Christian Academy up the street and visit Head Coach Chris Smelley and 4-star ATH Kamari Lassiter. You may recall, Smelley played some QB for South Carolina before transferring to Alabama to play baseball. He is the brother of former Tide H-back Brad Smelley.
Thankful to have Coach Saban stop by ACA to talk about our players, and blessed to have students athletes who are both talented enough and have the work ethic to garner such attention! #rollACAroll pic.twitter.com/YaTuOzFL55— ACAPatriotsFootball (@AmerChrFootball) January 24, 2020
