RECRUITING: Alabama could go heavily into JUCO for 2012 class

The Alabama Crimson Tide continues to look at junior college players to fill needs, according to this video report from WIAT with’s Andrew Bone.

Bone said Alabama continues to do well in junior college recruiting. Bone said Alabama could use junior college to “reload” at several of the defensive positions expected to head to the NFL. Bone said Alabama could find help at corner and at nose guard in the 2012 class.

Big time cornerback Travell Dixon, 6’2’ 200 lbs, out of Eastern Arizona Junior College is on the Alabama list; Dixon will be at Alabama for the LSU game on November 5, according to Bone. “Alabama is clearly the top school for him,” Bone said.

Deon Belue of Tuscumbia signed with Alabama in the 2010 class, but is now at Northeast Mississippi Community College. Belue is on track to graduate and could join Alabama since the staff has told him he has a spot, according to Bone.

Daniel McCullers, 6’6 and over 350 lbs., nose guard graduates in December, and “Alabama is in his top 2.” The other team in the top 2 is Tennessee.

In other recruiting news, Hueytown quarterback Jameis Winston is “still solidly committed to Florida State,” but he was at the Alabama game for homecoming.

“For now, Seminole fans can be happy,” Bone said.
