Commitment Predictions

The 2013 version of the Iron Bowl may be the most critical in determining the fate of college football this fall, as No. 1 Alabama travels to face No. 4 Auburn. Crimson Tide commitments are well aware of the task ahead, and offer predictions of the game inside.

While as one would expect, each Alabama commitment that spoke to of late selected the Crimson Tide to defeat Auburn in the Iron Bowl -- the reasons may surprise you.

Some see Nick Saban and company comfortable defeating the No. 4 team in the country, while others see it as a battle that could come down to the wire.

* Five-star offensive lineman Dominick Jackson: "I think this (AU) is the best D-line the Alabama O-line has played this year. I think the first half is going to be a close game and the second half, 'Bama is going to pull away. I say 'Bama wins by 14 or more, running for 150-plus (yards)."

* Four-star defensive end Mekhi Brown (2015): "I think Alabama wins, 28-13."

* Three-star offensive guard Montel McBride: "35-21, ‘Bama."

* Four-star center J.C. Hassenauer: "It's gonna be a great game! RTR!"

* Four-star offensive guard Dallas Warmack (2015): "It's gonna be a close game since it's a rivalry and they're both good teams this year. I think 'Bama's still gonna win because they have an experienced team and Auburn has a young team. So 'Bama wins 28-14."

* Four-star outside linebacker Ronnie  Clark: "I just know ‘Bama is going to win, no score though."

* Three-star linebacker Shaun Hamilton: "38-21, ‘Bama."

* Three-star defensive tackle O.J. Smith: "No prediction, should be a great game."

* Three-star linebacker Keith Holcombe: "35-21, ‘Bama."

* Four-star defensive back Deionte Thompson (2015): "35-17. Alabama."

* Four-star offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher: "31-17 ‘Bama."

* Three-star punter J.K. Scott: "42 to 17, Alabama. ROLL TIDE!!"
