Recruiting Recap

In the legends first post, I will discuss some of the amazing athletes that make up the 2010 class.

Demarcus Milliner - Absolute stud and the prized recruit of the 2010 class. Milliner is a 6-2 180 freak from Millbrook, AL. The only 5 Star in our class, who runs in the sub 4.5's and as the opportunity to play as a true freshman. With only 1 returning DB to the 2010 Tide, Milliner could fight for some playing time along side last years gem DB Dre Kirkpatrick.

Phillip Sims - Considered the number one QB in the 2010 class, Phillip comes from Chesapeake, VA where he won a State Championship as a junior at Oscar Smith, where he also became Virginia's all time leading passer. He has some kinks to work out before becoming successful at the next level, but with McElroy coming back for his senior year and A.J. riding shotgun he should have plenty of time to develop

Arie Kouandjio - A 6-6 314 lb Offensive tackle was a late signing to the 2010 class but will prove to be an anchor for our offensive line for the next few years. Arie is one of the strongest recruits in the 2010 class and is currently though of as a RT. With his rare combination of size, strength, and speed Arie is versatile enough to play Guard or Tackle at the college ranks. Coach Sunseri had to get Arie out of the rarely recruited state of Maryland, but he hit a home run with Arie who is probably our best recruit on the offensive line.

Deion Belue - This 6" 175lb 3 star ATH played both sides of the ball for Deshler in Tuscumbia, AL. While being recruited Coach Saban told him he sees his future along side many future stars in what will be a nasty secondary. While probably needing a year or two to prepare for SEC WR's, Belue has a great opportunity to succeed as a punt returned, a spot left vacant by all world return man Javi Arenas. Last season Deion had a run of 7 straight games in which he returned a punt for a touchdown.

Alfy Hill - Another one of our prized recruits in the 2010 class, he was recruit out of the state of North Carolina. This 6-4 222 lb defensive end is considered one if not the fastest at his position. Alfy will most likely be red shirted this year so he can gain 20-30 pounds and become and absolute terror coming off the end. With his long arms and incredible speed for a big man, Alfy has all the tools to be a superstar in the SEC.

The Man, The Myth, The Legend
