'Bama makes a move for McGraw

Alabama's A-Day game always brings in its fair share of top-notch visitors in multiple classes. In this case, class of 2015 defense back Rico McGraw was in town and he brought his family with him for what he called a "great" trip.

"Things went great today," said Rico McGraw on Saturday, still on Alabama's campus after the A-Day game.

Before kickoff, the elite class of 2015 defensive back from Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth met with several Crimson Tide coaches.

"They said they will be at the school sometime soon and Coach [Nick] Saban was just telling me that they want m here at 'Bama and that they're extremely high on me," he said.

The attention, coupled with some additional factors went a long way for McGraw, who already holds an offer from the defending national champs.

"I really like it here," he admitted. "I feel very comfortable here and I can tell everyone here wants me to be apart of this program.

"The whole coaching staff was talking to me about it."

McGraw, who stands 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, admitted that the experience helped Alabama move up in his top group of schools.

"LSU, South Carolina, Florida State, Miami, Alabama and Tennessee," he said of the other members of it. "No order yet."

After the meeting with Saban and company, McGraw and his family took in the annual spring game.

"The secondary looked great." he said. "Coach Saban and the new DB coach, Coach [Greg] Brown is doing a great job.

"I was watching Vinnie Sunseri and [Ha Ha]Clinton-Dix."

The family felt like McGraw did in Tuscaloosa.

"They really enjoyed themselves," he said. "They just enjoyed the environment it had to offer, and of course the tradition there.

"It was just their second time there."

The only unknown for the sophomore with UA is where he may play should he eventually sign with the program.

Said McGraw, "They're still debating what position. Right now, they like me as a corner though."

A decision from the top prospect isn't expected any time soon.
