Recruiting News: Olive Branch Offensive Linemen Shon Coleman was being escorted by D.J. Fluker on his visit yesterday. Coleman is said to be enjoying himself in Tuscaloosa. Coleman appears to be about 6’6 250 (he is listed by Rivals.com as 6’7”, 285 lbs.) He would definitely need to bulk up to play offensive line in college—judging by visual evidence.

Alabama is working hard to keep 5-star recruit Keenan Allen. Apparently, Keenan and his brother Zach made a visit to Clemson last week, which has some recruiting followers worried. Zach is Keenan’s older brother who played quarterback for the University of Buffalo. He got an early transfer release and it appears that they would like to play together. In my opinion, don’t expect Keenan to waiver on his commitment. Zach is a great athlete and could possibly end up on the team.

James Stone seems to be caught up between Alabama and Tennessee. Pendry visited Stone yesterday.

Juco defensive back Dequan Menzie received an offer from the Tide and may sign with Alabama on Feb. 3, but anything can change with the numbers during the final days.
