Nick Saban tries to connect with the youth, dabs with recruit

Sunday January 24th, 2016

College football coaches will do anything to look cool to the young kids they recruit.

First, it was Houston coach Tom Herman fitting himself for a grill from Paul Wall. Now, it’s Alabama coach Nick Saban dabbing with five-star recruit Lyndell Wilson.

Saban hit the dab during an in-home visit with Wilson, who will announce his college decision on Feb. 3. 

Hopefully Wilson makes every coach he meets dance before he signs.
