Anthony "Turbo" Rogers committed to the University of Alabama in June of 2023. The 4-star running back played for the Pike Road Patriots as a freshman and sophomore and then transferred to IMG for his junior year. Rogers transferred back to Alabama and will play for Carver in Montgomery as a senior. The speedster reportedly has a laser-timed 4.8 40-yard dash and ran an 11.29 100-meter dash as a sophomore. Scouts compare him to Miami Dolphins running back Devon Achane as he's a threat to score anytime he touches the ball.

2. Antonio Coleman

Coleman is a 4-star defensive lineman playing for the powerhouse Saraland Spartans. He's considered the No. 12 overall prospect in the state of Alabama and his recruitment has been quite a ride. Coleman committed to the Crimson Tide in September of last season but flipped into the Auburn recruiting class in December before rejoining the Alabama class in March. His Spartans won the 6A state championship in 2022 and were runners-up in 2023.

3. Derick Smith

The 4-star wide receiver is considered the No. 4 prospect in the state of Alabama. He excels on both sides of the ball for Southside Selma playing safety and primarily receiver on offense, but is used in multiple skill positions for the Panthers. He caught 46 passes for 1,487 yards and 14 touchdowns while also carrying the ball 65 times for 1,036 yards and nine more scores on offense. Defensively he tallied 74 tackles and 11 sacks as a junior.

He spent his junior year playing defensive back and accumulated 103 tackles. Johnson is expected to transition to linebacker for his senior year as he continues developing.

Mater Dei has been kind to Alabama and Sanders Jr. looks to continue the trend. The 4-star linebacker is considered the No. 24 player in the state of California and tallied 52 tackles with 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception as a junior in his first year playing inside linebacker.

6. Luke Metz

The 4-star wide receiver out of New Jersey is known for a unique blend of speed and quickness. He hauled in 61 passes for 1,295 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior and already owns the South Jersey career receiving record with 3,355 yards. While just 5-foot-9, 170-pounds his speed and athleticism look to pair nicely with Derick Smith's size and physicality as the two Crimson Tide receiver commits.

8. Jaedon Harmon

The 4-star quarterback started Alabama's summer commitment momentum by flipping from SMU to the Crimson Tide in June. The two-time Class 6A state champion out of Duncanville, Texas went on to wow scouts by winning the Elite 11 Finals and the Rivals Quarterback Camp showing that he's just as talented as some of the top signal callers in the class. Russell threw for 3,483 yards on 71 percent completion with 38 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions while also adding over 300 yards rushing with six touchdowns on the ground as a junior.

10. Chuck McDonald

McDonald keeps the Mater Dei to Alabama pipeline strong and becomes the second cornerback in two seasons to commit to the Crimson Tide following Zabien Brown. He's shown ability to play in the slot and on the outside at Mater Dei and plays with great intensity and physicality. McDonald isn't afraid to make tackles in run support and does a great job contesting catches by playing through receivers hands.
