BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Alabama is holding the first of several different football camps from Sunday through Wednesday. This camp is "High School 1" while "High School 2" will be from July 13-16.

The age of campers range from rising freshman to rising junior college sophomore, and anyone in that age group can sign up, but several top college prospects will be in attendance at some point over the next four days.

It's important to note that most of the prospects going to this camp are the types who are hoping to impress and earn an offer from the Alabama coaching staff.

All prospects are class of 2015 unless otherwise noted.

* Ronnie Harrison, a safety from Tallahassee, Fla., who committed to North Carolina, tweeted that he was attending. He's with a group that includes Tallahassee-Rickards 2016 WR Kalen Riles, Tallahassee 2016 DB Armunz Matthews and Tallahassee quarterback Gunnar Howard.

* 4-star Memphis OL Drew Richmond is in Tuscaloosa this weekend, per 247Sports.

* Terry Godwin, a 5-star athlete committed to Georgia, is visiting Auburn and Alabama. AL.com caught up with Godwin on Saturday.

* Shreveport, La., 4-star DT T.D. Moton is camping at Alabama, per 247Sports.

* Bessemer City OL Darryl Williams is going to Alabama on Sunday after his trip to Auburn.

* Ellenwood, Ga., 3-star DL Quentez Johnson is going to Alabama for camp.

* Oxford receiver Tredarian Gamble is camping at Alabama.

* Willie Allen, a 6-foot-7 offensive tackle from John Curtis High in New Orleans, is camping. He's in the class of 2016 and a 247Sports composite 5-star prospect.

* Tyler Pritchett, a highly-rated 2016 OL from Auburn, is camping at Alabama.

* Newnan, Ga., 2016 linebacker Emanuel Bridges says he's visiting on June 3.

* Dale County athlete Jamarius Henderson is expected to camp this week so Alabama can get a better look at him. Henderson committed to UAB as a running back, but could play safety if he goes to a bigger program.

* Pinson Valley star running back Nick Gibson is camping, according to 247Sports.

* Ellenwood, Ga., 3-star defensive end Gus Cumberlander is camping at Alabama.

* John Broussard, a star Central-Phenix City defensive back in the class of 2016, told AL.com he's going to be at Alabama on Monday.

* D.J. Morgan, a 2016 athlete from Bellflower, Ca., is visiting Alabama and Auburn this week. Looks like he's having a good visit so far.

* Brady Davis, a 6-foot-3 pro-style quarterback from Columbus, told AL.com he'll be at Alabama on Sunday to throw for Tide coaches. He's hoping to earn an offer and is attending camps at Auburn, Troy, Louisiana Tech, South Florida, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Southern Miss.

* 2016 Gordo linebacker Ben Davis is camping at Tuscaloosa, from 247Sports.

* St. Paul's defensive back Jalen Thompson is expected to camp in Tuscaloosa this week, per 247Sports.

* Miami running back Jordan Herrera, who was committed to Temple, tweeted that he's visiting Alabama.


Would love to see Nick Gibson and TD Moton pull the trigger

Agreed he could be a Sunseri type. I dont know how fast he is, but by some of the plays on tape, it looks like he has good vision.



Damn I wish Vinnie stayed in school.
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.

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.

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.
