Casher bonds with recruits on official

Josh Casher has one of the bigger personalities on the Alabama commitment list for 2014, and it showed during his official visit to campus over the weekend.

Joshua Casher got to speak to new Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin on the phone during the week, so the weekend official visit he took to Tuscaloosa was about his fellow recruits.

A dozen Crimson Tide verbal commitments made it to campus, along with two priority defensive targets in Rashaan Evans and Matthew Elam.

"It went well, it was great," Casher said. "All the players bonded well and we had a great time.

"My host was Arie Kouandjio, he was a really good guy. And I had a blast, everyone was great."

Whether committed to Nick Saban's program or not, the 48 hours spent with the players and coaches captured a "together" feeling for all involved.

"We all get along great," he said. "I mean, it was a chance for all the recruits to really get to know each other.

"I don't think nobody felt out of place. Everybody was cool and seemed to be having fun."

Reiterating that the bond with the players and having a good time was the best part of the official visit, the three-star center prospect out of Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul's Episcopal also tipped his cap to his future coaching staff.

"It doesn't get any realer than Coach Saban and his staff," Casher said. "It is filled with great people who put the players first."

During individual time with Saban, the focus was on the 6-foot-1, 280-pounder's personality.

"He said that I was a good person with good leadership," he said.

Casher's recruiting, or more like talking, tactics were focused on exhibiting said personality with Evans, a five-star, at both the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game and the Under Armour All-America week of late, so Elam was more of a priority this time around.

"Matt Elam was cool, he seems like a good guy," he said. "We joked around and had fun. He's a good guy.

"Roll Tide."

Casher is ranked as the No. 4 center in the class of 2014 by
