D.J. Smith (5-foot-11, 170) cornerback from Walton High School in Marietta, Ga., has a former temamate already committed to Alabama (Tyren Jones). He is receiving interest from the Tide, Clemson, and a host of other SEC schools. His first scholarship offer came from the Cornhuskers of Nebraska.
Davon Godchaux, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end from the Bayou State, has received a scholarship offer from Alabama. It already looks like another Tide-Tigers battle.
Cameron Robinson, a 6-foot-5.5, 320 pound left tackle from Louisiana, has the Tide and Tigers taking a very eager look at his future.
The Elite 11 in Columbus, Ohio, had a host of writers giving their opinion of the performance of a couple of signal callers who the Tide has shown interest:
Mitch Trubisky: He's a kid that looked good on the hoof, but as a dual threat guy this is not necessarily his setting, he's better in a setting where he can use his feet, so this wasn't his best day, but that's why an event like this is only a small piece of the evaluation.
Max Staver: The guy who maybe helped himself the most. He's a big kid with a strong arm and was consistently on the money. He also threw the ball down field very well.

AndrewJBone: Alabama assistant coach Jeremy Pruitt stopped by Northview HS in Dothan Friday to see athlete Marquez White.
