Corley committed to LSU. 'The Hat' guaranteed him playing time (10-12 snaps a game) and no redshirt.
We picked up a commitment from Jeremy Elder, a 6'3", 276 lbs DE that, in my opinion, may be the best pickup of this class. He's got perfect size and great speed.
I can see where Luther Davis is going to be a fan favorite. Sucks Saban won't be letting him talk to the media until after his freshman year. Here's what he had to say about Corley going to LSU --
"From my understanding Sidell (Corley) committed to LSU," Davis said. "I think it is a bad move for him. That is just my opinion. It is a bad move. Here I am de-committing from there because of the depth chart, and they are telling him he has a chance to come in and play 10-12 snaps a game.
"They are going to redshirt him. It is a fact. He would have been better to come to Alabama. LSU is so deep at defensive end."
"I wish him the best. I tried to call him, but he didn't answer. I guess he knew what I had to say about everything. There is nothing I can do. That is his decision and something him and his father came up with. I wish him the best of luck. I believe in the eighth week we (Alabama) play them."
Haha. This kid is awesome.
I don't know about you guys, but Wednesday can't get here fast enough for me.

Interesting comments to say the least.
Luther Davis is a headcase that will say anything if someone asks his opinion. Apparently word is he was "recruiting" 4 or 5 people to Alabama. Who knew he had so much influence?
Crazy that Corley wouldn't answer. Why would he? He owes Luther nothing.
Davis is probably right, though, LSU may redshirt him. They may also give him some playing time, though he would have to earn it.
He is definitely paired with the right coach to muzzle him though. Looks like he may need it after all his comments. # posted by Mike : 10:47 AM
I'm with you. Can't wait to see what "rabbit" Saban pulls out of his hat. # posted by L W : 12:41 PM
