Alabama’s recruiting has been one of the hottest topics in the state of Texas, and the Longhorns are well on their way to achieving that goal.
With a handful of major-conference teams now playing in the Lone Star State, the Longhorn recruiting landscape has been a major focus for the last two years.
In 2016, Texas was ranked in the top 25 recruiting states for each of the next five recruiting categories, according to Rivals.
In 2019, Texas’ recruiting rank dropped to #22.
In 2020, it jumped to #23.
In 2021, it was at #25.
In 2022, it hit #27.
And it is only going to get better for 2019.
According to 247Sports, Alabama is set to be one of only four schools in the country that will rank higher than #20 in the 2019 recruiting rankings.
The Tide’s rise to the top of the list is driven by two major factors.
First, the Crimson Tide has signed top recruits like Deontay Burnett and Deon Cain.
Secondly, Alabama has been able to bring in high-level talent from a variety of schools.
In the 2017 class, Alabama signed four of the top five recruits in the class of 2019: three-star wide receiver Chris Brown, four-star running back D.J. Humphries, four/five-star safety Nick Chubb, and four-stars defensive tackle Jake Campion.
The class of 2020 will likely feature two-star offensive tackle Josh Reynolds, three-stars wide receiver Johnathan Lee, and three- stars wide receiver Michael Williams.
The Crimson Tide is also bringing in some big-name defensive backs such as four-time first-team All-American safety DaQuan Jones, three stars safety Jamal Adams, and two-stars cornerback Jalen Collins.
Alabama has a huge amount of talent and the Crimson Crimson Tide recruiting class is loaded with talent.
But Alabama’s future is still uncertain, and its players must be on their best behavior.
