2010 Signing Class Filled

The University of Alabama finished its recruitment today with 26 athletes signing letters of intent to play at the Capstone. Some of the 26 are already enrolled at school and will be joined by their fellow classmates this fall.

As of now, the class is ranked by Rivals.com as the 5th ranked class in the nation. Here is how the top five classes rank.
  1. Florida
  2. Texas
  3. Auburn
  4. USC
  5. Alabama

I don't see the Tide's ranking moving either direction as National Signing Day comes to an end. While it doesn't have the glamour as previous classes brought to Alabama by Nick Saban, with number one rankings and highly ranked recruits, it is filled from top to bottom with some true athletes. Here is a list of the newest members of the Crimson Tide.

  • DE- Alfy Hill
  • OL- Arie Kouandjio
  • DB- Dequan Menzie
  • LB- C.J. Mosley
  • WR- DeAndrew White
  • DB- Jarrick Williams
  • RB- Corey Grant
  • DE- Adrian Hubbard
  • WR- Keiwone Malone
  • DB- Nick Perry
  • ATH- Blake Sims
  • TE- Brian Vogler
  • WR- Ronald Carswell
  • TE- Harrison Jones
  • DT- Brandon Lewis
  • DB- Deion Belue
  • DT- Brandon Ivory
  • DE- Wilson Love
  • K- Jay Williams
  • K- Cade Foster
  • RB- Jalston Fowler
  • DB- John Fulton
  • OL- Chad Lindsay
  • DB- DeMarcus Milliner
  • OL- Austin Shepherd
  • QB- Phillip Sims

With the class coming in it is clear that the coaches feel their biggest need was in the secondary and on defense with so many players either graduating or going to the NFL. Looking at the number of defensive backs and defensive linemen in the class, Coach Saban has taken the first step to fill those holes.

We will break down each commitment individually in the coming weeks to get a better idea of how they will impact the Tide in the coming future.
