It was a huge day in Alabama recruiting, especially when it comes to the Tide tapping in to South…
Analysis: Elite trio to Bama
Alabama is the No. 1 team in the country in the updated team rankings on Scout. After picking up four commitments on Saturday, the Crismon Tide now has 13. Out of those four, three came from elite prospects out of the south and here are what those guys can do. Shawn Burgess-Becker, 4-Star S (No. 7 S, No. 94 Overall), Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch Great athlete. Great burst to the ball, tracks the ball well, and receiver-like hands as a defensive back. Very smooth in transition - could play some nickel, but I like him a lot to HaHa Clinton-Dix and to be a great center fielder for the Tide at safety. Better as a coverage guy with his range than he is a tackler in run support at this time. Needs to still work on his coverage skills, but a very good prospect. Leo Lewis, 4-Star ILB (No. 7 ILB, No. 180 Overall), Brookhaven (Miss.) A kid I will see live this spring and I am excited a lot about that. On film, I love how he flies to the ball and explodes through the ball carrier. He has great size, he can move around the box, and he is very good on the blitz as well. When watching film, he looks college ready now from a physical standpoint. He is very strong, he sheds well, and he is a finisher. He still needs to improve in pass coverage. Calvin Ridley, 4-Star CB (No. 8 CB, No. 52 Overall), Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch Still very raw on offense and defense, but so talented, and so much potential. He is a very long and lean athlete with the ability to separate as a wideout and cover as a corner. He could be a top wideout for a team or a shutdown corner - that is how talented he is. Very fluid, sinks his hips well, and someone who has not even tapped into his potential. Big hands and he just snatches the ball out of the air.
