Nick Saban changed how I, as a diehard Alabama fan, look at college recruiting.

Yeah, I don't really worry about it anymore.

This goes back to the year that Saban swore he wasn't gonna leave the Miami Dolphins.

Too bad so sad for them. I just have plenty of faith that we are gonna be fine in Tuscaloosa when it comes to recruiting.

However, things are getting interesting at this point.

Recruits are changing their minds and some, it appears, are leaning towards the Alabama Crimson Tide.

We just might see these TOP recruits in Alabama helmets in 2022.

These aren't just any crop of recruits. They are the biggest recruits in major college football.


#1. Josh Conerly Jr./OT/6-5 285

Rated #1 in his position group and 8th overall.

Josh is from out West, and was partial to Washington, but now Alabama is solidly in the picture as of press time.


#2 Anthony Lucas/DL/6-4 275

Rated #14 in the nation overall and 5th in his position group.

He seemed to be leaning towards Texas A&M but now Alabama has reportedly (according to 247 sports) moved to the front.


#3 Domani Jackson/CB/6-1 185 Photo: 247 sports

Rated #15 in the nation overall and 2nd at his position.

Joe Gaither, from Tide 100.9, has a great piece on Domani HERE


#4 Marvin Jones Jr./EDGE/6-4 253

Rated #18 in the nation overall and #1 at his position.

Georgia has been in the picture but Alabama seems to have taken the lead as of now.


#5 Emmanuel Henderson/RB/6-1 185

Rated #43 in the nation and 1st at his position.

I love, love, love this kid.

He is from Geneva, Alabama and recently had a game vs. Cottonwood and racked up 342 yards.

And that was just in the first three quarters.

He can fly, has incredible moves and is just plain fun to watch. You can't tell me he doesn't look good in that "Bama uniform.

Five of the most sought after recruits in the entire country in Tuscaloosa in 2022...I predict we will snag all of them.
