Bama’s newest stud, Da’Shawn Hand

The country’s top prep propsect, according to Rivals, announced today he would be playing his college days for Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Da’Shawn Hand, a 6’4″, 248lb. defensive end from Woodbridge, VA picked the Tide over other finalists Michigan and Florida.

Hand joins offensive lineman Cameron Robinson of West Monroe, LA giving Alabama two five-star prospects in the 2014 class. And, evidence that the rich are just getting richer, 18 of the Tide’s 23 overall commits are in the ESPN 300 rankings.

Said the super senior about Alabama:

“The campus life is amazing,” Hand said. “I know half the team already. The coaching staff is amazing. Why not go where it’s a great possibility you could win a national championship?

“When I took my visit, I took two visits. I got to see what the campus life is outside of football season as well as my official. I saw how the gameday atmosphere is, the culture. They have a winning tradition. They don’t lie to you. I know when I go in, I won’t be No. 1 on the depth chart.”

Nick Saban is once again recruiting his expletive off, securing the foundation for Alabama’s already unreal talent pool. Further evidence, obviously, that he’s going to Texas.

    Wow. He sounds like a champion already, doesn’t he? Sounds to me like he chose the best fit. I love seeing smart guys like this come in and succeed rather than look for an ego boost. Roll Tide.

    “Further evidence, obviously, that he’s going to Texas.”

    yes, yes going to Texas:

    after the Mi$$ $t game.

    Smart takes over in interim.

    Dabo Swinney gets the job.

    hires Ed Orgeron as def. coodinator.

    and Steve Spurrier to coach offense.

    (i repeat this line to anyone who asks me about the Saban-to-Texas story. you’d be shocked at the number who are buying in until i get to the Spurrier line. and then it takes a minute.)

    In 2105, the entire starting Alabama defensive line could be composed of Virginia players: Korren Kirven (Lynchburg), Jonathan Allen (Ashburn), and Hand. It’s enough to make Frank Beamer crap his pants a dozen times.
