Pair of four-stars to visit

Alabama is hosting its final camp in July, but a pair of four-stars will make the trip to Tuscaloosa at other times this month for potentially final visits before making a commitment.

Alabama has been able to get countless elite prospects on campus throughout the 2014 recruiting cycle, but one who has yet to see Tuscaloosa will break the ice this weekend.

The other, also a four-star prospect on FOX Sports NEXT/, has been several times - but it could be his final trip before making a commitment.

Prospects are making decisions sooner and sooner, magnifying each trip they take - especially in the summer.

For David Sharpe, most feel it will be tough for him to leave his home state, where the Florida Gators seems to have an edge over Florida State. But with offers from national powers after a big spring, the Jacksonville (Fla.) Providence is looking to see more options. He'll be in Tuscaloosa on Saturday to spend the day on campus.

"I have no clue what to expect," said the No. 17 offensive tackle nationally.

The former basketball player at 6-foot-7, 280 pounds has mentioned Alabama as one of the schools recruiting him the most.

Along those same lines lies Ronnie  Clark, the in-state athlete from Calera (Ala.). Also a four-star talent, the rising senior recently admitted that a decision was looming in the spring.

Scout anticipated a June commitment from the 6-foot-3, 213-pound standout, but it seems as if he's not yet ready.

Clark informed that he'll take a trip to both Alabama and Auburn in July, in what could be the final pair of unofficial visits before the No. 6 outside linebacker prospect nationally announces a commitment.

In May, Clark let know that he was looking for a third school to consider along with each in-state power (video HERE), but that apparently hasn't developed even despite an offer from LSU, the top school in Clark's home-state before moving as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

With the summer in full swing and preseason football on the horizon, Sharpe's first visit could be as big as Clark's potentially final visit to Tuscaloosa within Nick Saban's class of 2014 haul. will have its subscribers covered throughout.
