Defensive End Craig Sanders of Ariton High School is the latest player to pull his commitment from the Crimson Tide. Sanders and Jawan James of Gwinnett, Georgia are 2 players from the 2010 class to decommit. It looks like Craig will be headed to “The Plains” to be playing college ball.
Sanders stepfather told Rivals.com, “I think Craig was looking at Alabama’s depth chart and figured they were pretty loaded there. It isn’t anything against Alabama at all. They handled Craig and everything about his recruitment first-class, but Auburn stayed on him and stayed on him and that just got him thinking about other options.”
In the past this would be a major blow for the Tide Program, but with the few remaining spots available, the staff is working hard on some very big impact recruits. Alabama has a legitimate shot at taking in their third consecutive mythical national recruiting title. Alabama has a plan for its remaining slots on the recruiting board.
In the next week I will go over the remaining uncommitted top prospects that The Tide will be battling other top programs for. Stay Tuned!
