Editor’s note: T.J. Walls was kind enough to share a list of some 2010 recruits Alabama may have an interest in landing. One thing seems certain, Alabama will have to manage its numbers again if Nick Saban signs as many as Walls and Tombrello suggest. Enjoy.

A Look At Some of Bamaâ€™s 2010 Targetâ€™s
The University of Alabamaâ€™s football team has a very limited amount of room for players it can offer scholarships. Coach Nick Saban and the staff are still grinding it out for the top remaining players. As of October 1, 2009, the Tide has 20 verbal commitments. Alabama could sign somewhere around 28 players on February 6, 2010. So with roughly 8 spots remaining, here is a list of 16 players that Alabama has a good shot at landing.
