The Alabama Crimson Tide are turning up the heat on the recruiting trail during the offseason, and it's already paying dividends. Here's all the latest news and rumors surrounding Alabama's recruiting efforts:
Tide to flip Penn State commit?
Alabama recently offered a scholarship to 2018 four-star defensive end Micah Parsons (Harrisburg, PA), and the 6'3", 235-pounder was thrilled about it.
“It was a dream getting an offer from Bama,” Parsons said, via 247sports. “They’re an amazing school with amazing tradition. They’re the best team in the nation, so definitely a good offer. Everyone wants [a national title], but Bama can get you one.”
Parsons is currently committed to Penn State, but he admitted that Alabama's offer could change things for him.
“I’m a PSU guy, but things can change. It’s a long process, but for now I’m PSU.”
Parsons is ranked as the No. 2 defensive end and No. 5 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
Alabama visits 8 targets
Alabama's coaching staff is keeping the roads hot this weekend, visiting eight of their top targets. Defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is carrying most of the burden, visiting four-star DE LaBryan Ray, four-star S Xavier McKinney, three-star LB Monty Rice and three-star LB Kenney Britt.
Three other coaches have hit the road as well. Tight ends coach Mario Cristobal visited four-star WR Nico Collins, while offensive line coach Brent Key went to see four-star ATH Alaric Williams. Wide receivers coach Billy Napier is also visiting four-star WR Henry Ruggs III and three-star WR Monterio Hunt.Back to the Alabama Crimson Tide Newsfeed
