Tide Hosting Interesting Recruits

The match-up between the University of Alabama and Western Kentucky does not have the prime time national TV audience the Tide prefers for Saturday's contest, but several elite prospects are still expected to venture to Tuscaloosa including a few surprises.

Several of Alabama's commitments plan to attend all home games including Kellen Williams, Scout.com three-star offensive tackle from Snellville-Brookwood, (Ga.), AJ McCarron, four-star quarterback from Mobile-St. Paul's, William Ming, four-star defensive end from Athens, Quinton Dial, three-star defensive tackle from Clay-Chalkville and Gerald West, three-star cornerback from Mobile-Faith Academy.

Nico Johnson, Scout.com five-star middle linebacker from Andalusia, will make his first game of the season. Johnson committed to Alabama over several scholarship offers including Auburn, LSU, Florida and USC.

The top in-state uncommitted prospect expected this weekend is Tana Patrick, Scout.com four-star strongside linebacker from Stevenson-North Jackson. Patrick is not naming favorites, but Alabama is considered a top contender for his signature.

Brandon Heavens, Scout.com three-star wide receiver from Bessemer-Jess Lanier, will travel to Tuscaloosa. Heavens committed to Auburn back in April.

Jonathan Stewart, Scout.com three-star strongside linebacker from Shreveport-Byrd, (La.), visited Alabama's campus in the summer before giving a commitment to Texas A&M. Stewart will arrive in Tuscaloosa for an unofficial visit.

Alec Ogletree, class of 2010 outside linebacker from Newnan, (Ga.), is recruited by Alabama as a safety and has already received several early offers. His plans have been confirmed to attend this weekend's game against Western Kentucky.

This is an unofficial list of a just few of the high school prospects expected to visit the Capstone Saturday, September 13.
