Official visitorsFour of the five-star recruits who are visiting Tuscaloosa this weekend are taking their official visits which includes Jordan Jenkins, five-star defensive end from Hamilton-Harris County, Ga., Landon Collins, five-star safety from Geismar-Dutchtown, La., Arik Armstead, five-star offensive tackle from Pleasant Grove-Elk Grove, Calif., and Avery Young, five-star offensive tackle from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Young is a recent addition to the list of official visitors. He visited Auburn last weekend, and the Tigers are in front for his signature. His cousin, Brandon Fulse, is a freshman tight end at Auburn.
In-state five-starsAll three of these players have confirmed their arrival in Tuscaloosa this weekend which includes Alabama commitment Reggie Ragland, five-star linebacker from Madison-Bob Jones, Kwon Alexander, five-star linebacker from Oxford, and Florida State commitment Jameis Winston, five-star quarterback from Hueytown.
"Alabama's defense and special teams are key," said Ragland. "If Trent [Richardson] can keep doing what he is doing on offense we will be fine. All it takes is one big play. Trent, [Darius] Hanks or [Marquis] Maze can make a big play down the field for the difference."
Magnolia StateQuay Evans, defensive tackle from Morton, Miss., and Channing Ward, defensive end from Aberdeen, Miss., plan to visit. The two five-stars have high interest in the Crimson Tide.
UnderclassmenThere are currently only three recruits in the Southeast who have been rated five-stars by Scout.com in the 2013 class. Alabama commitment Reuben Foster, linebacker from LaGrange-Troup County, Ga., Robert Nkemdiche, defensive end from Grayson, Ga., and Antonio Conner, safety from Batesville-South Panola, Miss., will see the Tide and Tigers play on Saturday.
"I believe it's going to be a hard fought game," said Conner. "Two of the best teams are going to battle it out. It's going to be a sight to see."
