Shula stays in touch with Lindsey twins

Mobile's Lindsey twins, Jordin and Dustin, are receiving some personal attention from Tide Head Coach Mike Shula.

At this point a scholarship offer is not on the table, but Alabama's head coach is clearly sending a signal that the Tide is interested in the linebacking twins. The boys father told in a recent conversation that they were receiving letters from Coach Mike Shula at least once a week.

One's a little taller (Dustin measures 6-4 to Jordin's 6-3). One's a little heavier (Jordin: 321, Dustin: 219). Both twins claim 4.65 as a best-clocking in the 40-yard dash.

The brothers compete for Davidson High School in Mobile. Dustin Lindsey garnered 152 tackles last season, on his way to being named Region 6A Linebacker of the year. Brother Jordin Lindsey totaled just five tackles less at 147.

The two would definitely like to play football together in college. Both claim that Mississippi State, Clemson, Louisville, Auburn and MTSU have offered scholarships.

Dustin Lindsey gets measured as he prepares to vertical jump at the Bama mini-camp.

Jordin told's Andrew Bone in an interview last month that Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State constitute their top three, and that they plan to take official visits to all three schools.

The two brothers attended Alabama's mini-camp this past summer, where they got a chance to meet the Tide coaches.

Alabama's interest is real, but at this point it's not certain that the Tide coaches will have enough scholarships to offer the Lindseys.

Clearly the brothers would be a valuable addition to any team. Given Bama's current NCAA situation, adding athletes like the Lindsey twins as walk-ons would be a coup. However, it's not at all clear that Dustin and Jordin would be willing to walk-on to play football for the Tide.
