The Christmas season is in full swing and the Crimson Tide received a surprise gift in the form of 4-star offensive lineman, Jaeden Roberts. Roberts was previously committed to Auburn but decided to decommit from the Tigers on Dec. 16.
The Alabama Crimson Tide is rolling on national early signing day, picking up signatures from 18 recruits so far. Alabama entered the day with the No. 1 ranked class according to 247Sports and thus far the signatures have kept the Tide right on track for the No. 1 class of 2021.
When the 2019 season ended, Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats told the media he would look high and low searching for talent to bring into his program for the 2020 season. Oats spoke out, saying that all avenues would be explored, high school, junior college or even the transfer portal would be options to find prospective talent.
Today was the first day of the late signing day for college basketball. Coach Oats saw four signatures come through its fax machine. The Crimson Tide's recruiting class is the 16th rated class in the country according to, Scout.com.
It looks like Auburn got a little too excited about 5-star recruit Rashaan Evans this week when they added him to their player roster on their website. The problem is, Rashaan just announced he'll be playing for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
