I hope I'm wrong but IMO someone steered Vinnie wrong when he went early.

I agree. The injury was also likely a factor. He wanted to secure some money.

4 star T.D. Moton committed! 18 commits already! Our class may be complete before the season!

Likely 7 spots left.

Trent Thompson came by Ttown this weekend. Here he is after lifting with Tim Williams and Tyren Jones

Tyren's biggest knock was his size when he got here. He's really gotten big.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - A solid performance at Alabama's prospect camp has earned quarterback Quinten Dormady an offer.

Dormady tweeted the news on Tuesday night. He joins Anaheim, Calif., standout Travis Waller as the two known quarterbacks in the 2015 class with Alabama offers. Dormady is rated as a four-star recruit on 247Sports.

Blessed to have received an offer from Alabama today! #RollTide

-- Quinten Dormady (@qdormady) June 4, 2014
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Dormady missed his junior season because of a baseball injury to his throwing shoulder.

Dormady also has offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, TCU, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Houston and UTSA.

Dormady's father Mike, his high school coach, told 247Sports that the quarterback was planning visits to several other schools over the weekend and into next week.

Like Moton (who missed his JR year cause of transfer rules) this guy has potential to really shoot up in the rankings. Bama is really trending on the Crystal Ball and Charles Powers has him coming here.

I hope Oregon pissed Waller off by not offering him yet
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Roster breakdown by stars.

http://bleacherrepor...son-tide-loaded

Quote

At the end of spring practices, there was one player from the recruiting class of 2009 remaining on the University of Alabama football roster, although most Crimson Tide fans probably don't remember ever seeing him on the field.

He was rated a 3-star player. He's since lined up at two different positions and finally saw his first game action last season.

His name? Anthony Orr.

It’s almost hard to believe that same recruiting class also had Trent Richardson, Dre Kirkpatrick, D.J. Fluker, James Carpenter, Chance Warmack, Eddie Lacy and Nico Johnson, who have all been in the National Football League for at least a year, while AJ McCarron, Kevin Norwood and Ed Stinson were selected in the recent draft.

That’s five first-round selections, an NFL rookie of the year and winners of too many collegiate awards to list. Most were also part of winning three national championships.

“I really do think the most accurate way to be able to rank any recruiting class would be three years down the road,” Nick Saban said on national signing day, “because I think the challenge for all these young men that got recruited today, wherever they're going, is to be able to stay focused on what they need to do to improve as players and do the things that they need to do to become very effective college football players.

Dave Martin/Associated Press
Nick Saban has surrounded himself with an amazing amount of talent.
“And it is a challenge to go from high school to college. Maybe the biggest challenge of all, maybe even more so going from college to the NFL.”
Nevertheless, with a unanimous No. 1 recruiting class this year, the Crimson Tide remains loaded with talent. Despite needing arguably 11 new starters (four offense, seven defense), the lineup looks like something straight out of one of those high-profile all-star games that the nation’s best recruits play in every year.

So after reviewing the Crimson Tide position by position earlier this week, the following is a different look at Alabama’s roster based on how each player was evaluated as a prospect. After each name is the year he signed, what level he was assigned (stars, five being the best) and his overall national rank according to the composite rankings by 247Sports.

Roster

Alabama doesn’t release scholarship information, but the above roster gives the Crimson Tide 42 offensive players, 43 defensive players and three specialists, which adds up to 88, three over the limit.

Saban usually doesn’t disclose information about players who may not return until after the fact, or about incoming players who haven't qualified academically. At least one has yet to arrive at the Capstone and the coach recently said that a couple of signees may need summer classes.

Incidentally, Orr has already graduated.

Year-by-year totals

With six players from the recruiting class of 2011 already in the NFL there are just nine remaining, the same number of holdovers from 2010. Meanwhile, 20 players from 2012 are still on the roster.

With two departures already, there are 23 players remaining from the recruiting class of 2013.



Stars galore

If it wanted to, Alabama could start a 5-star recruit at every defensive position minus two (it’s a linebacker and safety short). Overall, it’s slated to have 15 5-star players (six on offense, nine defense), and 50 (25 and 25) who were rated as 4-four prospects on the roster this season.

Combined, that’s a staggering 76.5 percent of the roster.

One of the nation's top TE's Columbia (Tenn.) Central's Jackson Harris is set to visit Alabama later today and stay in Tuscaloosa overnight. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder is admittedly close to making a decision and this is expected to be his final visit before doing so. Jackson has a top group that consists of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Vanderbilt. Most feel that it's a fight between the Tide and Bulldogs for the big pass-catcher's talents.

His Crystal Ball is currently split between Alabama (50%), Georgia (38%), Vandy (9%), and Florida (3%), with the Tide making a recent run of 14 straight picks. Harris was invited to Nike's The Opening event on Wednesday evening.

With Dormady committing to Tenn I think Waller might be a realistic possibility. Barnett looks to be heavily favoriting oregon but it's still early

As @AlabamaIntel has reported from the start, expect 5-star running back Bo Scarbrough to qualify in mid-July to early August #clearinghouse


Quote

UA is hosting some top prospects this week. Just a few quick thoughts on some of the visitors...

Starting with the two quarterbacks, Travis Waller (6-3, 190) of Anaheim-Servite, CA and Blake Barnett (6-4, 200) of Corona-Santiago, CA. As noted in our report on Waller last night, while Tide fans have been antsy about landing a QB, the UA staff has seemingly been content with taking it's time deciding which QB to pursue hard. It now seems clear that Waller and Barnett, both of who are on campus visiting now, are the two that UA is zeroing in on. Barnett, once a Notre Dame commit, is thought to be a very strong Oregon lean. Waller has narrowed his choices down to Alabama, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Ohio State. The feeling is that UA and ND have the inside track. The hunch here is that Waller might be UA's best shot.

QB/ATH Kai Locksley (6-3, 185) is also expected on campus. Locksley, from Baltimore-Gilman, is at the same HS that produced Tide corner Cyrus Jones. Locksley would likely be an athlete type recruit for UA. You never know how much a visit might influence a prospect, but Alabama has not been high on Locksley's list to this point.

Defensive end James Lockhart (6-3, 260) of Ennis, TX is a tremendous prospect. It's down to Texas A&M and Alabama as his top two. While I think the UA visit will 'wow' Lockhart, ultimately I think it's going to be tough to pull him out of Texas. He's been leaning to the Aggies. They kind of have it rolling recruiting in the state right now. They got a major bump in momentum with the commitment from QB Kyler Murray a couple of weeks ago. Two things might give Alabama a chance here though. First, UA has had some success recruiting the state of Texas the past few years. Having Texas natives like A'Shawn Robinson and Tony Brown on team certainly helps. Secondly, Alabama's history under Nick Saban for playing top defense and for developing defensive players for the next level. Some of the top defensive prospects have questioned A&M's ability to develop defensive talent. Still, when push comes to shove, the Aggies the feeling here is that the Aggies will be tough to beat for Lockhart.

Even though he still has a ton of schools on his list, I do think Alabama has an excellent shot at star linebacker/defensive end Ricky DeBerry (6-3, 248) of Richmond-St Christopher's in Virginia. DeBerry, who has close to 60 offers, had narrowed his list down to 20 schools, including Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Miami, Michigan State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Nebraska, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, South Carolina, UCLA, USC, Virginia and Virginia Tech. DeBerry and several family members will make their first visit to UA this Saturday. I know that the entire family is very excited about this trip. The one thing I think that Alabama is going to battle with on some of these top defensive recruits is the perception some are promoting that UA is stacked knee deep with four and five star players and that you might never play. Keep an eye on DeBerry though. I think UA could have a good shot with him.

And since Jacon Harris went to UGA, Jalen Harris,Will Gragg and DeAndre McNeal are the next possible guys to get that 2nd TE spot

@AndrewJBone: Jalen Harris, three-star TE from St. James in Montgomery, Ala., is visiting #Alabama today. He received an offer last week.
