Right, so National Signing Day’s tomorrow, which means that it’s Christmas for anyone who loves seeing if their school’s signing up some good talent.

Why haven’t we gone more crazy on the recruiting front? It’s easy. I could get excited about a recruit, only for him to de-commit 400 times before making a decision, so I’d rather wait until National Signing Day. And then go crazy folks. Which I will do.

Somewhere in the SEC, our head coaches are calling, texting, FBing and sexting recruits (OK, maybe not the last) in an effort to get them to come and play for their schools. As a unit, it’s worked: 80 commitments will be to SEC schools on Wednesday.

But there’s still room for more. So here we go….

ALABAMA (Nick Saban)

“Come be part of a project!!”/ “Our kids go play in the NFL”/ “We’re much better than we were against Oklahoma!”/ “Unless you’re really ****ing stupid, you won’t get arrested in Tuscaloosa.
