Recruiting Corner: Dead Period Is Over Which Means Alabama Coaches On the Move
The dead period ended on Friday which means coaches can hit the road again for recruiting. Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban and his assistants are all over the place:
Saban was in Clarkston, Mich., to see two 2021 four-star offensive tackles, Rocco Spindler and Garrett Dellinger. Saban is also set to stop by West Bloomfield, Mich., to visit 2021 four-star running back Donovan Edwards.
Edwards is the No. 2 rank tailback in the nation according to 247Sports.
Assistant Jeff Banks is in Texas visiting with 2020 four-star defensive end Alfred Collins. The 6-foot-5, 275 pound lineman is expected to choose between the Crimson Tide, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Banks also stopped by Austin to check in with one of the Crimson Tide's 2021 commits, defensive back Latrell McCutchin.
2020 four-star defensive end Princely Umanmielen from Manor, Tx., received a visit from Banks this afternoon.
Defensive coordinator Pete Golding is headed south to Lucedale, Miss., to see one of the Crimson Tide's top remaining targets, four-star defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson.
Golding will also make his way to Mobile to see Deontae Lawson, a four-star linebacker, who committed to Alabama last month.
In Tuscaloosa this weekend will be Georgia commit and four-star center Sedrick Van Pran, Alabama commit and four-star wide receiver Javon Baker, and Crimson Tide signee and three-star running back Kyle Edwards.
Alabama is one of three SEC schools that Van Ran will visit over the next three weekends. Georgia and Florida will be the following weeks.
Baker is firm with the Crimson Tide, but will entertain a visit to Arkansa next weekend and either LSU or USC the following week.
This story will be updated with coaching stops throughout the rest of the day.
