Four-star dual-threat quarterback prospect Dorian Thompson-Robinson was ecstatic when he received an offer from Alabama last month. He immediately called his mother, Melva, after hanging up with Nick Saban and just screamed with excitement.
A little after a month after offering Thompson-Robinson, though, from his list of schools he is considering. California, Florida State, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina and UCLA are the final seven schools that Thompson-Robinson will choose from when he commits in the coming months.
The Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas) standout has never visited Tuscaloosa before, but his mother told SEC Country three weeks ago that it was still possible that they would make it to Alabama this spring or summer. The duo will make a trip to the South, but only to North Carolina and South Carolina as of now.
It still remains unknown on who Alabama will actually land at quarterback in the Class of 2018. The majority of the team’s targets are committed elsewhere. One uncommitted target from South Carolina is 4-star dual-threat prospect Dakereon Joyner. He’s expected to visit Tuscaloosa in the coming weeks, but right now, the mood around his recruitment is he’s favoring South Carolina.
We may not know who is genuinely interested in the Crimson Tide at the quarterback position until early June when Alabama hosts its quarterback camp. Last year at the Tide’s summer camp, the team flipped Kentucky quarterback commit Mac Jones. It’s very possible that’s the route Alabama will have to turn to this year.
