More Prospects on the Way

Though this weekend on campus will not be as big as last week, the Alabama coaching staff will host several prospects including several current Alabama commitments.

This is a list of who is projected to be in Tuscaloosa. Though other names could surface, all of these prospects have been contacted and have confirmed they will travel to Alabama for an official visit.

Current Commitments Visiting:

Michael Johnson: Johnson made a verbal commitment to the Tide, back in the summer. This fall, Johnson attended a majority of the Alabama home football games, and had the opportunity to become friends with several future teammates. He has the frame to project at offensive tackle.

Marlon Davis: Davis was scheduled to visit Alabama last weekend, but decided to push his visit back to this weekend. Davis was thinking about taking a few other visits, but is now 100% committed to the Tide. He was well known on the gridiron for pancake blocks, and projects as an interior lineman.

Clarence Ward: The Alabama coaching staff was thrilled when Ward announced his verbal commitment to the Tide. The four star recruit is rated as the thirteenth best defensive back in the country by Scout.com. Ward is one of the top players added to the top ranked defensive back recruiting class in the country.

Brandon Fanney: Fanney was not highly publicized coming out of high school, but has made a name for himself this past year at Hargrave. He had a phenomenal year starting every game at Hargrave. Fanney will make his first trip to Tuscaloosa since last year's official visit.

Lorenzo Washington: Last year, one of the biggest names to commit was Zo Washington. Washington committed to the Tide on Countdown to Signing Day, in Atlanta, Georgia. This fall, he was the star at the Hargrave combine. Clocked with a 4.85 forty and a 4.05 shuttle, which was the fastest time at any position. Washington already bleeds crimson, and is anxious to get to Tuscaloosa.
