Who is Alabama expecting to commit this Spring?
— Good Day (@johns3rdson) March 5, 2018
Alabama never expects any player to commit to the team. It’s on the recruit to make that decision on his own. Does the staff encourage players to commit when it wants the recruit to do so? Absolutely. But it’s recruiting and commitments sometimes can be unexpected.
I think there are several recruits who could commit to the Tide in the coming months. Here are a few who may choose Alabama:
- 4-star cornerback Christian Williams
- 4-star Jack linebacker Ani Izuchukwu
- 4-star quarterback Paul Tyson
- 2020 LB Jackson Bratton
Christian Williams, an in-state prospect, has been to Tuscaloosa numerous times in the last year. Alabama holds an edge in Williams’ recruitment, according to a source close to him.
Ani Izuchukwu likely will choose Alabama or Ohio State. He has been to Tuscaloosa numerous times since arriving in America from Nigeria in 2015. Because Alabama is closer to his mentors and host family in Murfreesboro, Tenn., I think that makes the Tide the most logical choice.
Paul Tyson is the great-grandson of Bear Bryant. I know he wants to visit other schools, but I have a hard time believing he’s going to choose a school other than Alabama.
I can see Jackson Bratton being the leader of the 2020 class. He grew up an Alabama fan and has dreamed about playing for the Tide.
