Picture
Shannon Brown is a LB out of Adel,GA ( Cook High School).  Brown is still drawing attention from recruiters all over the country, even after committing to Alabama.


Picture
Brent Calloway is an outside linebacker from Russellville,AL (Russellville High). Calloway committed to Alabama  on June 22, 2009. Calloway has offers form Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, USC and Vanderbilt.

What we know: Calloway rushed for more than 1,600 yards and 32 touchdowns during the 2009 season. He had more than 100 tackles and 22 sacks on defense.
 
Andrew Bone says: Calloway is dominant on both sides of the ball. He is always in the right place at the right time. He is extremely athletic and runs like a deer.



Picture
Hasean Clinton-Dix is a great ATH. from Orlando,FL ( Dr. Phillips High School ). Some say Hesean is going to be a monster on special teams. He is a very long-limbed athlete with a frame that can hold another 15 to 20 pounds of muscle mass. Hesean has about the same build as Alabama's Nick Perry.

Needs Improvement: Clinton-Dix needs to add a little of that muscle mass. At the Tuscaloosa Nike camp he seemed a bit on the thin side. Developing this bulk should make him an even bigger hitter and more durable. He should probably work on wrapping people up instead of just putting a shoulder to the ball carrier.

Most Impressive: Has the ability to cover receivers while in zone coverage. Clinton-Dix is no stranger to catching plays from behind or smacking people right in the mouth while on the gridiron.


Picture
Daryl Collins a WR from Gadsden City,AL ( Gadsden City High ). Collins has a long list of schools that have offeres on the table to this young man. The list of schools are: Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Miami (FL), Mississippi, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UAB, USC and Vanderbilt. 

What we know: Collins caught 16 passes for eight touchdowns in 2009.
 
Andrew Bone says: Collins is a physical receiver who plays in a wing-T offense. He didn't put up big statistics last season, but made big plays when needed. He has great speed and athleticism

Committed to Alabama  on March 23, 2010. I haven't found a whole lot of info on this kid or any videos. Collins right now is a 3 star player according to Rivals.com, I do expect that to change when Rivals updates their star ratings after the 2010 season starts.

2011 class has alot of good WRs in it. Collins will have his work cut out for him, if he wants to get some playing time in the the next few years.


Picture
Trey DePriest LB from Springfield, Ohio ( Springfield High School ). Has the frame of a middle linebacker, but he shows the flexibility and change of direction to be able to play on the outside in space. Quicker than fast, ideal for a linebacker, DePriest at times plays too high, but he’s strong enough that he’s gotten away with it in high school. He's a tenacious pass rusher who has a knack for timing the snap and beating a blocker out of his stance. Shows good balance as a RB - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.



STRENGTHS:
Change of Direction, Foot Quickness, Hitting Ability

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT: Tackling Technique

2009: DePriest had 101 tackles (10 for loss) and seven sacks. He had 812 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns on offense.

Prospect who plays in a tough conference who earned All-Conference honors as a freshman.

Offers From: Alabama, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida, LSU, Michigan, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Sanford, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia


Picture
Quinton Dial a star DE from Clay-Chalkville. Dial says he's counting down the days to when he can get to Bama after having to spend two years at Scooba's East Mississippi Community College.


Picture
Malcolm Faciane another big TE at 6'6'' from Picayune,MS (Picayune High ). Faciane is a special talent. He has excellent speed for a player his size and he is a true tight end rather than a converted wide receiver. Malcolm is very good at the point of contact on running plays. He has good arm length that allows him to keep defenders from crowding him on pass routes. He has soft hands and gets north and south in a hurry. He is extremely athletic and could push for playing time early in his college career. Players with his skill set are rare.

Faciane committed to Alabama on April 15, 2010. Malcolm is rated a 3 star and is the #22 TE in Pos. rating from Scouts and Rivals. I couldn't find a video of Faciane, but I managed to find a little of the info I put on here about him. Malcolm Faciane can't remember the specific game, but an Ole Miss game he caught on television as a 13-year-old has left him intrigued with the Rebels ever since. He did take a visit to Ole Miss, but he found a better fit with the Crimson Tide and their TE friendly offense.

Faciane has offers from: Alabama,  Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss.


Picture
LaMichael Fanning the DT from Auburn,AL ( Auburn High ). At 6'7'' and 270lbs Fanning is one of the most impressive prospects on the hoof that you will see in 2011. He has great size with good feet and outstanding athleticism, but he just has to put it all together on the field. He needs to continue to build up his strength, play with more toughness, and improve his technique. He could end up on the defensive or offensive line at the next level. His ceiling is high because of size and athleticism.

Fanning holds offers from 9 different schools: Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas Tech.

LaMichael Fanning grew up in Hogansville, Ga. attending Callaway High School. After a solid sophomore season where he helped Coach Pete Wiggins' Cavaliers to the 2nd round of the playoffs, LaMichael's mother accepted a job in Auburn, Ala. Already a top prospect, Fanning's added presence helped the Tigers stout defense make a deep run in the playoffs and a 13-1 record. Now LaMichael has moved back to GA. where he will play his senior season before joining Bama in 2011.


Picture
Ryan Kelly an Offensive Center from West Chester, Ohio ( Lakota West High School ). There's not alot on this guy right now. If we get more info, we will post is asap.


Picture
Isaac Luatua OL  from La Mirada,CA (La Mirada High )
One of the western region's most sought after lineman has made his decision and much to the chagrin of Pac 10 schools Isaac Luatua (6-2, 299 )  has decided to go east to attend Alabama and play his college football.

Luatua says he can bench 350lbs and squat 510lbs.

Luatua reports a 2.9 core GPA and took the SAT in early April.

Luatua: "I’m explosive. I get after the guy in front of me fast and try to knock him down. I’m very physical."

"But I want to try and stay lower and not always have to outmuscle guys."

At La Mirada High School head coach Mike Moschetti
believes he has an exceptional talent in rising senior Isaac Luatua.



Picture
D.J. Pettway DE from Pensacola,FL (Pensacola Catholic High).
This Tide commit  is one of the fastest-rising defensive end prospects in the country

Pensacola, Florida has been very good to the Crimson Tide over the past few years. Two key contributors from last year's national championship team were from the coastal city in the panhandle in Trent Richardson and Mike Johnson. The Tide hopes their good fortune contines with the commitment of D.J. Pettway from Pensacola Catholic High School.

For the moment I don't have alot on Pettway, but as with all others I will put more up as I get it.


Picture
Marvin Shinn WR from Prichard,AL ( Vigor High School).

On the Hoof: Shinn's lower body is more developed. He has the legs of a basketball player who can jump out of the building. He will remind fans of 2010 Clemson signee Martavis Bryant.
 
Needs Improvement: Clearly he will need to add upper body strength while improving his speed just a tad. Shinn needs more reps at wide receiver because he is his team's part-time quarterback. Reps at receiver will allow him more time to work on beating physical press coverage and running sharper routes.
 
Most Impressive: This is your prototypical basketball player-turned receiver. He has tremendous body control while being able to adjust while the ball is in the air. He also possesses problems with his height and arm length for smaller defensive backs.
 
Conclusion: He could use a redshirt year while he increases his strength and adds muscle mass. If he proves to be a quick learner and can catch the ball with regularity, he will play some as a true freshman. He has all the tools to be a star; he just needs to stay focused on the task at hand.

2009: Shinn had more than 900 total yards of offense during the season and scored 17 touchdowns.

2008 Stats (Sophomore): Shinn caught 46 passes for 872 yards and 17 touchdowns. A spectacular receiver.

Andrew Bone says: Shinn is a big-gamer and a very tough matchup for defensive backs. He has great hands and a very long stride. He has great athleticism and ball skills.


Picture
Vinnie Sunseri LB from Tuscaloosa,AL (Northridge High School)

2009: Sunseri recorded 109 tackles in 2009 with 15 tackles for loss, five interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries at Marvin Ridge High School in Waxhaw. He earned the Bronko Nagurski Defensive Player of the Year award in the state of North Carolina and Conference Player of the Year.

Kadetrix Marcus has seen is stock rise recently and it could climb even more after a standout performance at the Tuscaloosa NIKE Camp and more exposure at a new school.

Offers from: Alabama, Louisville, Memphis & Pittsburgh

Sunseri had 109 tackles in 2009 with 15 tackles for loss, five interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries at Marvin Ridge High School
in Waxhaw, N.C. He transferred after the season. He earned the Bronko Nagurski Defensive Player of the Year award in the state of North Carolina and was player of the year in his conference.

Andrew Bone says: Sunseri is a smart and very polished player. He reads plays extremely well and positions himself to make tackles. He is great tackler and really excels in pass coverage. He is the son of Alabama linebackers coach Sal Sunseri.

I couldn't find any good video on Sunseri.


Picture
Bradley Sylve WR from Port Sulphur,LA ( South Plaquemines High School )

Injuries have hampered Sylve since the beginning of his junior year as he tore a ligament in his foot and suffered an elbow injury in the spring. Sylve was easily the fastest player in the state prior to his foot injury but he must regain that speed to be that breakaway threat in college. He showed some elusiveness after the catch as he wasn’t just a straight-line guy but needs to work on route-running and catching the ball with his hands.

STRENGTHS: Quickness off Line, Running Ability, Speed

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT: Durability, Hands and Concentration, Route-Running Skills

Offers From: Alabama, California, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Stanford, Tennessee & USC


Picture
Jabriel Washington ATH from Jackson,TN ( Trinity Christian Academy )

Washington is a versatile athlete that could play wide receiver, safety, or corner on the next level. What he can do at his size will likely land him at corner. He is long, he has good feet, he has good hips, and he could be that bigger corner schools
look for. He has hands of a receiver too, so that will be a bonus. Getting stronger and adding weight along with fine tuning his press coverage skills are things he needs to work on. - Chad Simmons

2008: Washington racked up 114 tackles and seven interceptions on defense, and 11 rushing touchdowns to go with 17 passing on the opposite side.

STRENGTHS: Burst Out Of Breaks, Hands, Size

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT:  Jamming Ability

Offers From: (23 different schools) Alabama, Auburn, California, Colorado, Duke, FSU, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, LSU, Memphis, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC & Vanderbilt


Picture
Danny Woodson WR from Mobile,AL ( Le Flore High School )

LeFlore wide receiver Danny Woodson has continued to wow coaches and scouts across the country with his impressive athleticism and 7-on-7 performances.

2009: Woodson had 57 receptions for 1,463 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Coach Quinney says of the freshman "Great young talent." (2007)

What we know: Woodson had 57 receptions for 1,463 yards and 25 touchdowns during the 2009 season.
 
Andrew Bone says: Woodson was a fast riser this spring. He isn't a flashy receiver, but runs great routes and catches the ball extremely well.

Woodson has been making plays for LeFlore High School since he was a freshman, but one play he made last year caught everybody off guard.

That play against Williamson High late in the year surprised his coach, surprised his grandparents and even surprised himself a little.

Woodson ran a simple crossing route over the middle and found himself open, but the quarterback threw the ball too far behind him. Woodson reached back, grabbed the ball with one hand, and never lost stride.

When he turned back around, he had to elude a defender, and rather than juke left or right, Woodson jumped clear over him and kept running for 20 more yards.

Offers from: Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, Louisville, Memphis, Mississippi, South Alabama, Southern Miss., Tennessee, Texas Tech & Troy

 “He's an excellent player,” LeFlore head coach Christopher Raymond said. “To be as big as he is, his speed is exceptional. He has great hands, great jumping ability. He does the things you would think small receivers would do with his size.”

As a junior, Woodson made All-State with 57 receptions, 1,420 yards and 20 touchdowns through the air. He also chipped in 400 yards and five touchdowns rushing the ball.

Despite all the notoriety and all of the offers that kept piling up, it only took one scholarship offer to seal the deal and end his recruitment. That offer came from Alabama in March.

“With my dad being at Alabama, we've been raised as Alabama fans,” Woodson said. “They had been sending me a bunch of interest, but I had not received that offer yet, so my grandparents said, ‘Don't worry, (you'll) get it soon.' I got it, and I felt like that was my opportunity to do what I'm supposed to do and commit because I felt like that's where I wanted to go for years.”

To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.
