Plenty of Alabama commitments were in action during Week 5 of the season, 19 of 24 total pledges to be exact, but this game ball was one of the tougher decisions we've had to make in the weekly feature since many top performers also lost their respective games.
The nominees, in alphabetical order, are:
5-star QB Blake Barnett
4-star ATH Shyheim Carter (2016)
3-star DE Anfernee Jennings
4-star DB Rico McGraw
Each pledge put in great effort on Thursday, Friday or on Saturday, but only one could be awarded the game ball.
