Recruiting analyst for BamaOnline, Hank South, joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier Monday morning to provide a late July recruiting update and discuss the Crimson Tide's upcoming Champions Cookout

"We've heard from a lot of recruits since he (Sal Sunseri) has rejoined the staff."

South told Reier about what possibly sold 4-star defensive tackle Timothy Smith to commit to Alabama.

"I knew coach Sal at Florida," South told Reier. "now I know him at Alabama, and it helps Alabama. Several recruits have said that. He's been a huge boost to this recruiting staff, and a guy that is going to keep Bama really strong in Florida. More so than they have in recent years."

You can listen to the full recruiting update from Hank South and hear more about the upcoming Champions Cookout in the video above.

"I don't think it is going to be as big of a visitor's weekend as we saw at the cookout in June," South told Reier. "Which is to be expected, that's how last year was. I think that's how every dual cookout summer has been. Still some big targets, one thing I am watching this weekend is the wide receiver position."
