Scout takes a look at state of Alabama risers since the New Year began

The state of Alabama's class of 2018 may not be as deep as the 2017 crop, but a handful of prospects have turned the corner on the recruiting trail since the New Year began.

Recent Offers: AlabamaAuburnLSUGeorgia

Quick Eval: Andres Fox is long and lean with good production versus both the pass and the run. He has picked up momentum since helping Mobile (Ala.) Christian to the 3A state championship game in December, picking up each in-state SEC offer and others since that apex. 

Who's Next?: Florida is a program recruiting the Yellowhammer State more and more and it has had recent success in Moblie in landing Lamical Perine and Kadarius Toney in consecutive classes.

Quick Eval: Malik Langham seems as safe defensive line prospect in the state as anyone because of his consistency, size and ability against the run and the pass. He has great length and plays with great leverage off of the football. His junior tape has led to each of the listed offers coming over the last 10 days. 

Who's Next?: In-state SEC schools Alabama and Auburn have each hosted him and will again do so for upcoming junior day events. Only two in-state defensive linemen, the aforementioned Fox and Birmingham (Ala.) Jackson-Olin four-star Coynis Miller, currently hold each Iron Bowl offer at this time.

Recent Offers: Auburn, Florida, OregonTCU

Quick Eval: Asa Martin, a balanced back with the ability to play in space or run between the tackles, flashed as a sophomore at Decatur (Ala.) Austin High School before becoming a national recruit at the well-watched IMG Academy. Now he's back in north Alabama and his stock has never been higher.

Who's Next?: The in-state AU offer will play a role through the rest of Martin's recruitment, but more SEC schools are likely to factor into the race, too.

Recent Offers: Auburn, Ole Miss, MissouriDuke

Quick Eval: Kameron Stutts is a run-blocking specialist with great size and finishing ability. He moves well enough to be featured in space or to get to the second level from the offensive interior. 

Who's Next?: Stutts has frequented Tuscaloosa in recent months after turning some heads in town last summer at camp.

Recent Offers: Ole Miss, Missouri, UAB, Southern MississippiArkansas State

Quick Eval: Mr. Football himself, Ladamian Webb is an ultra-productive and durable back. Not the biggest or fastest, he is a nightmare to stop in the open field and rarely is slowed near the line of scrimmage because of his above-average vision and instincts.

Who's Next?: Nearby Auburn just offered Martin and was by to see Webb on multiple occasions in January.
