Alabama recruiting question of the day: Predicting 4 players to join Tide’s 2019 class

Alabama finished seventh in the recruiting rankings in the 2018 class, but expect the Crimson Tide to be back on top come 2019. SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner will answer the Recruiting Question of the Day each weekday. You can ask him your questions on Twitter or on Facebook. Find our previous questions and answers here.

Clay Webb, 5-star center, Oxford (Ala.) High School 

Clay Webb’s decision likely will come down to Alabama or Auburn. He didn’t grow up a fan of either school and doesn’t have ties to either program. Both of his parents are Jacksonville State alums. An edge the Crimson Tide have over the Tigers, though, is his relationship with Alabama 5-star tackle commit Pierce Quick and his relationship with offensive line coach Brent Key.

The Crimson Tide have prioritized Webb for a long time, and I don’t expect them to lose this battle.

Nakobe Dean, 5-star inside linebacker, Horn Lake (Miss.)

Nakobe Dean told SEC Country last month that Alabama and LSU were two schools that would definitely make his top-5 list. Dean has been to Tuscaloosa several times already and is a big priority for the Tide.

Jaylen McCollough, 4-star safety, Hillgrove (Powder Springs, Ga.)

Jaylen McCollough has been to Alabama numerous times already and has developed a good relationship with the Tide staff. Alabama is one of McCollough’s top-3 schools.

Paul Tyson, 4-star quarterback, Hewitt-Trussville (Trussville, Ala.)

Paul Tyson is Bear Bryant’s great-grandson. If Alabama wants him to be one of its quarterbacks in the 2019 class, I have a hard time imagining him turning down the Crimson Tide given his family’s history at the university.
