One more recruit who could commit to Alabama this weekend

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.

Who else could commit to Alabama this weekend?

In case you missed it on Thursday night, I gave a list of the prospects whom I think could commit to Alabama when they are in Tuscaloosa for A-Day on Saturday.

One name that should be added to the list of possibilities is Siaki Ika, a 4-star defensive tackle from East High School in Salt Lake City. Ika is spending Friday in Tuscaloosa, and this is his second trip to Alabama since February. That’s a long trip to make if there weren’t considerable interest on Ika’s end.

The one concern about Ika is he’s listed at 360 pounds. He’s going to have to be lighter than that to play for the Crimson Tide. It’ll be interesting to learn what he weighed in at this weekend because that was one question mark the staff had in February.

If Nick Saban gives Ika the OK to commit, there’s a good chance he heads back to Utah pledged to the Tide.
