Recruiting: C.J. Mosely picks Alabama

C.J. Mosely picks Alabama at the All-American game. He said during his announcement on NBC that it was great to see the University win the national championship and put the state back on the map. Mosely is a highly coveted linebacker that is rated a four-star by Rivals.com and Scout.com. He is 6’2, 212 lbs., and runs a 4.5”.

Mike Farrell of Rivals.com said it was a great pickup for Alabama. He said it pushes forward Nick Saban’s quest for another recruiting title; it would be the third in a row, and Farrell said such a feat has been accomplished only once before and that was by Pete Carroll and USC “during its dynasty run.”

One other recruiting item of note: Blake Sims decommitted Friday. According to a report by Rivals, Sims was concerned about where he might fit in Alabama’s offense.
