Alabama hosting two events

The University of Alabama's OL/DL camp and 7-on-7 tournament is this weekend in Tuscaloosa. The coaching staff is expected to have big names on campus including several of the Crimson Tide's top commitments.

The 7-on-7 tournament which begins Friday through Saturday will feature 48 high school teams from across the country. Pool play will begin Friday with each team guaranteed to play at least seven games while competing in the tournament. The seeding for the tournament is based on record in pool play. The event is open to any team who pre-registered. It is not an invite-only event.

Numerous top prospects are expected on campus with so many teams on campus. Information is not available from Alabama on teams competing.

The OL/DL camp is also open to players who pre-registered. Alabama has four offensive line commitments, and Laremy Tunsil remains on the recruiting board. It's also very possible a prospect who competes in the camp earns a scholarship offer from the staff this weekend.

Three of Alabama's four offensive line commitments are expected to compete in the camp including Grant Hill, four-star offensive guard from Huntsville High School, Bradley Bozeman, three-star offensive guard from Handley High School in Roanoke, and Andy Dodd, three-star offensive guard from Pepperell High School in Lindale, Ga.

Another Tide commitment who plans to spend time in Tuscaloosa this weekend is Altee Tenpenny, National 100 running back from North Little Rock High School in Ark. He is returning after camping with the coaching staff last week. The 6-foot, 205-pound back camped at Oklahoma State this past weekend. He clocked a 4.38-40 yard dash and 3.98-shuttle.

Montravious Adams, five-star defensive tackle from Dooley County High School in Vienna, Ga., is expected to attend the Tide's camp this weekend. It is unclear whether he will compete in the camp or not. Alabama has been on the outside looking in for the elite prospect. However this is his first visit to Tuscaloosa this year.

Michael Hill, four-star defensive tackle from Pendleton High School in S.C.,, plans to spend time at Alabama Friday and Saturday. Hill is one of the top overall prospects in the South. Clemson and South Carolina were considered the early favorites. Ohio State is now a top contender. Alabama can get in the mix with a good visit to the Capstone.

Several in-state linemen who have confirmed their participation in the camp include Noah Armstrong, offensive tackle from Lawrence County High School in Moulton, Cameron Fraser, an offensive tackle from Central High School in Phenix City and a South Florida commitment, Robert McGee, center prospect from Mountain Brook High School, and Jerry Harris, defensive tackle from Hueytown High School.

Several out-of-state prospects who plan compete in the camp include Jake Thomas, four-star offensive tackle from Columbus High School in Miss., Christian Morris, four-star offensive tackle from East High School in Memphis, Tenn., and teammate Bobby Billingsley, a three-star center, Lovell Peterson and Gerald Willis, 2014 defensive ends from Edna Karr High School in New Orleans, La.
