RECRUITING: Many players mull offers

Here is a quick look at a few of the major players in the 2008 class mulling offers from Alabama. The list isn’t complete by any means, and is constantly changing thanks to the aggressive nature of the Saban staff. I’ll add these names to the offer section of the website, and will post any additions, etc. as they are added.

Corey Smith of Inwood-Musselman, (W.Va.)

Smith “projects as a punter/kickoff specialist,” according to Special Teams Solutions, a kicking/punting coaching site. I guess that means we might get a touchback on kickoffs or something? In a kicking camp as a sophomore, Smith notched punts averaging over 39-yards per kick. Smith also has an offer from West Virginia.

Reggie Hunt of Daphne HS 5-8 187  4.4

He rushed for over 1,000-yards as a junior even with missing five games. He was honorable mention on the All-State football team as voted by the Alabama Sports Writers Association.

Justin Rogers of Vestavia 5-11 180 4.4
Led Vestavia with 2,100-yards rushing and 31 touchdowns. He has an offer from Alabama on the table. Rogers was voted an honorable mention to the All-State team as a junior.


Ivan Matchett of St. Pauls Episcopal 5-10 205 4.6 
Without question the Mobile area will be a major battleground with Saban at the helm, and with the Mobile emphasis, Matchett has an early offer from Alabama on the table.. He rushed for over 1,400-yards as a junior. He was an honorable mention on the All-State team as voted by the ASWA.

Richard Watson Tallahassee, Fl 6-1 220 4.5
Watson appears to be leaning towards OSU.

Michael Abernathy of Russellville 6-0 235 4.5

Abernathy was a first team All-state player as voted by the Alabama Sports Writers Association as a junior. He has an impressive record with over 3,000-yards rushing and 1,934-yards receiving.

Julio Jones of Foley 6-3 205 4.4

Jones completed his junior year with over 1,250-yards with 16 touchdowns. He was voted to the All-State SUPER 12 team by the Alabama Sports Writers Association as a junior.

Ryan Wallace of Bowling Green, (Ky.) 6-6 230

“When you walk into their sporting complex, you see all of the statues they have of the coaches who have won the national championship there. All of the memorabilia and prestige at Alabama is what really stood out to me,” Wallace was quoted as saying by

John M. Boswell of Northport 6-6 290

Boswell has offers from Alabama and Ole Miss. Boswell was impressed with his visit to UA.

David Spurlock of Murfreesboro-Riverdale, (Tenn.) 6-5 291 5.2
Spurlock has offers from Alabama, Tennessee and Vandy. quoted the athlete as saying he liked Alabama OL coach Joe Pendry. Spurlock is expected to make a decision before the summer.

Tyler Love of Mountain Brook 6-7 270

Jerrell Harris  of Gadsden 6-4 210 4.5

In his junior season and the first season for the Gadsden City Titans, Harris notched 100 tackles for a loss of 127 yards, 15 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, two interceptions, one for a touchdown, 18 quarterback pressures and seven deflected passes. Harris also plays basketball for the Titans.
