Recruiting heating up...for '08?
Yup. That's right....wait....first the countdown:

Days 'til the A-Day Game: 18
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 151

So I read today that Wesley Neighbors committed to Alabama yesterday. It's all in the family, and boy does he have a legacy to hold up. Same as the Castille brothers, I suppose. Anyway, I started looking at numbers, and I remember correctly, we only have 16 seniors on scholarship this year. Which would mean we only have 16 openings for recruiting.

We've already got commitments from 7 kids.

Undra Billingsley| DE (6'4" 260lbs) from Birmingham, AL
Brandon Lewis| DE (6'3" 260lbs) from Pleasant Grove, AL
Ivan Matchett| RB (5'10" 205lbs) from Mobile, AL
Wesley Neighbors| DB (6'1" 190lbs) from Huntsville, AL
Jermaine Preyear| RB (5'11" 205lbs) from Mobile, AL
Corey Smith| K (6'0" 190lbs) from Bunker Hill, WV
Michael Williams| DE (6'6" 240lbs) from Reform, AL

There is just an OBVIOUS need for defensive lineman. We've already got three big ole Defensive Ends committed for next year's recruiting class after we locked up four of them this year. That's a position that HAS to be plentiful.

From everything that we've heard, the offense sounds like it's going to be gumbo - a little bit of everything tossed in. At least we'll be well balanced, and hopefully nothing like last year's predictable formations.
