Now that the season is officially over, and Alabama has won its fourth championship in the past seven years, recruiting will start to pick up.
We are three weeks away from National Signing Day, and there are plenty of top targets that remain on Alabama’s big board.
Here’s a look at who could end up in Tuscaloosa next season with the hopes of winning a back-to-back title.
Top remaining targets
Amir Rasul, four-star running back, Miami
- Where things stand: Rasul, who has been committed to Florida State since July, will take an official visit to Alabama this weekend. As of now, he has not scheduled an official visit to the school he’s committed to, and that always raises red flags. He will be one to watch moving forward.
D’Vaughn Pennamon, three-star running back, Manvel, Texas
- Where things stand: The Ole Miss commit will take an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 22, but he has maintained that he is 100 percent committed to the Rebels. Still, it’s never a bad thing to host a recruit that you hope to flip down the road.
Robert Washington, three-star running back, Mount Holly, N.C.
- Where things stand: Washington has an official visit set up for the weekend before signing day, and that’s a big deal in recruiting because it’s the last school a recruit will see before signing his papers. He de-committed from Syracuse in August.
A.J. Brown, four-star wide receiver, Starkville, Miss.
- Where things stand: It would appear that Brown is down to Alabama, Mississippi State and Ole Miss, though California is still in the mix. Brown will take an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 15. He told SEC Country in December that he was drooling when he had a chance to meet Nick Saban in his office. Alabama’s chances to land their biggest remaining wide receiver target look promising.
Keith Gavin, four-star wide receiver, Crawfordville, Fla.
- Where things stand: Gavin told SEC Country that Florida State is his dream school, but that isn’t stopping him from visiting Alabama on Jan. 15. The four-star prospect said he will choose between FSU and Bama when he does make his commitment. Right now, I think the former Seminoles commit will still end up with FSU. That could change if Alabama knocks his official visit out-of-the-park.
Ahmmon Richards, four-star wide receiver, West Palm Beach, Fla.
- Where things stand: Richards will take an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 22, and the Crimson Tide are in his top four along with Auburn, Tennessee and Miami. He told SEC Country that he thinks if he did commit to Alabama, he would become a better person. He also compared Nick Saban’s discipline to his father’s, and he likes that.
Tyler Vaughns, four-star wide receiver, La Puente, Calif.
- Where things stand: The nation’s No. 1 wide receiver told SEC Country that Alabama’s chances of flipping him from Southern Cal are good. He has an official visit set to Alabama on Jan. 22. He still needs to get some questions answered before he seriously considering backing off his pledge to the Trojans.
Mykel Jones, four-star wide receiver, Patterson, La.
- Where things stand: Jones is down to Ole Miss, Tennessee and Alabama. Right now, it appears as if the Rebels have the inside track to land his commitment. But before he makes his decision, Alabama will host him on an official visit Jan. 15.
Korey Banks, three-star wide receiver, Tyrone, Ga.
- Where things stand: The North Carolina commit picked up an offer from Alabama last month and set up an official visit to Tuscaloosa on Jan. 22. Right now, Banks may be an insurance plan if Alabama doesn’t get some of its bigger priorities at the position.
Mecole Hardman, Jr., five-star athlete, Bowman, Ga.
- Where things stand: The nation’s No. 1 athlete named Alabama his leader during U.S. Army All-American week, but I still think Alabama is the school on the outside looking in. He has not set up an official visit to Alabama as of this time. When he does make his decision, I think Georgia will be the school he picks. He can play wide receiver, cornerback and kick/punt returner on the next level and excel at all three positions.
Demetris Robertson, five-star athlete, Savannah, Ga.
- Where things stand: Robertson’s recruitment is interesting, to say the least. He has maintained that Stanford is his leader, though he has never visited the school. In order to take an official visit to Stanford, you need to have been admitted into the school, and he has not yet. He still needs higher test scores. If he does not qualify, look for Georgia and Alabama to be battling it out until signing day. Robertson was once committed to Alabama.
Devin Asiasi, four-star tight end, Concord, Calif.
- Where things stand: The four-star prospect from the West Coast told SEC Country during U.S. Army All-American week that he would no longer be taking his Jan. 22 official visit to Alabama. There’s no reason to be concerned about that, though. He canceled because he’s been there twice before. The Crimson Tide are in his top five and he likes the possibility of replacing O.J. Howard, if the national championship star decides to declare for the NFL draft.
Nick Eubanks, three-star tight end, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
- Where things stand: Eubanks is down to his final three schools: Alabama, Florida and USC. He’ll take an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 15, but right now, Asiasi is viewed as the bigger priority to the Crimson Tide than Eubanks is.
Landon Dickerson, four-star offensive lineman, Hudson, N.C.
- Where things stand: Dickerson hasn’t really been connected all that much to Alabama, but he will visit on Jan. 22. He’s already visited Auburn and Florida State. He’ll visit Florida this weekend.
Donavaughn Campbell, four-star offensive lineman, Ponchatoula, La.
- Where things stand: Campbell has been committed to LSU for more than a year now, and he has said all along that he will take his official visits. He’s going to do just that. Alabama will have its chance to give Campbell its recruiting pitch when he’s hosted for an official visit on Jan. 22.
Tramonda Moore, four-star offensive lineman, Oklahoma City
- Where things stand: Oklahoma is the overwhelming favorite to land Moore when he makes his decision, but Alabama did receive some good news regarding its status with him. He was expected to announce his commitment this past Saturday at the U.S. Army All-American game, but he decided to hold off. He’ll visit on Jan. 22, and maybe that will give the Crimson Tide the boost it needed to get back in the mix.
