Scout 100: Alabama flavor
The University of Alabama has three commitments in the 2013 class. Rueben Foster, five-star linebacker from LaGrange-Troup County, Ga., projects as the top player at his position in the country. Foster committed to Alabama this past summer and recently took an unofficial visit to Auburn. He plans to visit other schools, but remains solid with his commitment to the Tide.
The other two commitments for Alabama include Bradley Bozeman, offensive tackle from Roanoke-Handley, Ala., and O.J. Howard, tight end from Prattville-Autauga Academy, Ala. Bozeman and Howard had excellent summers and earned their offers from the Tide. Bozeman and Howard should both rank among the Scout 300.
The state of Alabama had three recruits make the Scout 100 which included Earnest Robinson, wide receiver from Pinson Valley, Dee Liner, defensive tackle from Muscle Shoals and Austin Golson, offensive tackle from Prattville. Liner is committed to Auburn and Golson is committed to Florida State.
Golson will likely challenge Earnest Robinson for the state's top player. Robinson has earned more than 25 scholarship offers including every school in the SEC.
Alabama looks good with Robert Nkemdiche, defensive lineman from Grayson, Ga., who projects as the top recruit in the country. Nkemdiche is rated a five-star recruit and coached by former Alabama player, Mickey Conn.
