Only 24 hours away...
Tonight I will be posting a list of the kids who we will be waiting for an announcement from on National Signing Day (Wednesday). Coach Saban has some big names waiting in the wings...we'll see if everything comes to fruition. A lot of people seem to worry themselves with the numbers, but the bottom line is that some of these kids will either not qualify or some will be considered walk-ons (Mommy and Daddy will pay for them to play), i.e. Neighbors, Smelley, etc. Regardless, the coaching staff knows what they're doing with the numbers, and they don't have to fit until August, so don't worry about it. :-)

Auburn has stopped pursuit of a 4-star receiver, so I can't decide if he just told them to leave him alone, or if he did something to give them a reason to stop. Read up on it here.

Florida and Alabama are going to battle it out on signing day for the top spot on both Rivals.com and Scout.com. That's what I like to hear. Oh yeah, and word is out, at least in Jacksonville, that Alabama and Florida State are the final two for Julio Jones's services. Read more here.

The other day, Ian and Kevin Scarbinsky both reported that Kevin Steele was staying at Alabama rather than remaining a candidate for the South Alabama job. Apparently that news broke before he got to tell Joe Gottfried, the USA athletic director. Either way, Steele will be around for at least one more season.

Charles Rhodes, from Mississippi State, has given Richard Hendrix some "bulletin board material" by saying that Hendrix is not a tough matchup for them. Way to fuel the fire, boy.

There were reports yesterday that Jerrell Harris had one helluva trip to Tennessee last weekend, and that UT was in the running for Harris's services now, but apparently that isn't the case, because he knocked the Viles out of the running, leaving four schools - Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Southern California - awaiting his 2pm press conference on Wednesday. Read more here.
