The Opening, Nike’s premier camp for the top high school football players in the country, was a good opportunity for Alabama fans to see the future of what the Crimson Tide will look like in a few years.
Alabama quarterback commit Tua Tagovailoa won the Elite 11 MVP after a masterful performance in the 7-on-7 championship game and 5-star running back Najee Harris made his case for why he should be the No. 1 overall player in the country.
In the podcast below, I discuss the following topics:
- Now that he’s won the Elite 11 MVP, what are reasonable expectations for Tagovailoa when he gets to Alabama? (0:00 – 8:00)
- No more visits in the near future for Harris? Why that’s the news Alabama fans need to hear (8:00 – 12:00)
- What to make of 5-star linebacker Dylan Moses’ eyebrow-raising remarks about Alabama (12:00 – 15:00)
- Looking toward the future: Alabama lost out on its top 2018 QB target, where does it turn to now? (15:00 – 20:00)
