Offensive Lineman Jared Cooper says "you can't be a fan anymore." I don't believe that anyone that "grew up an Alabama fan," especially in the state of Alabama, would have trouble deciding whether to take a scholarship offer from Alabama or Auburn. Cooper...you better pick pretty quickly...and even still, you'll have a hard time convincing me what your true allegiance is.
Saban has already offered a scholarship to Tyler Love from Mountain Brook for the 2008 class. He also apparently made up a lot of ground with some big time recruits and got closer to receiving commitments from John Brown, Maze, and Corley, who has already committed to Florida. Corley said "I was feeling real good about Alabama, and then coach (Mike) Shula got fired," Corley told the recruiting web site. "I had some doubts, but after this visit I'm starting to feel that way about Alabama like the old times again."
