National championships are the ultimate trump card, and Blake Barnett knows it.
Alabama’s rising sophomore quarterback tweeted a simple message to Class of 2016 recruits on Monday afternoon.
“I got 16 reasons why you should commit to UA,” he wrote to the high school seniors who will be making their official college decisions on Wednesday. “The chances of there being 17 reasons next year is likely.”
The tweet was a reference to Alabama’s trophy case, which includes 16 national title awards.
Barnett, the projected signal-caller this autumn, will try to become the third quarterback in a row to bring the Crimson Tide to the College Football Playoff in his first season as starter.
