Bone's Bulletin Board 5.6.12

A couple of quarterbacks on the Tide's radar perfomed in a t-shirt and shorts event this weekend with an analysis of their performance. More players in the class of 2014 received scholarship offers and closer looks by the University of Alabama coaching staff.

News from across the network:

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.


Adam Schefter: Hits keep coming: Saints RB Mark Ingram underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday that is expected to sideline him six weeks.

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

darren rovell: After Pay Per View cut, Mayweather is making about $47M tonight. That's $1.3M per in-fight minute

Lisa Horne: College football countdown status: 117 days until the first game on August 30
