Kid looked good yesterday
At defensive back, yeah.
Seems like we gave him a look but things never really picked up with him.
I don't think any of the big SEC schools offered him.
I got the impression the staff liked him but there was no way we could've fit him in.
Flirted with him during January. No firm offer.

A good friend of mine was a classmate with and worked out with his brother in law school. His brother played CB at Alabama State I believe and was on the practice squad for a time with the Vikings. While watching the game, I asked my friend the same question. He said that Ameer grew up a life-long Auburn fan, but Auburn slow played him (right after they paid for the NC...). He said that Saban was upfront and honest with him telling him that if he offered it would be at Corner/return specialist (think Javy). Ameer wanted to play offense, so I don't think an offer was ever formally extended, though it sounded as though we would have offered had Ameer been good with his role as CB/KR/PR. Nebraska offered him as a RB, so he went to Nebraska. He is very athletic and plays "bigger" than his size indicates. He would have been very good as a DB in our defense, but I am glad that Saban is very honest and upfront with our recruits. That may be why mommas and daddys like him so much...
he has looked good all year. definitely could have found a role on our team but probably not a premier back
As RB or DB? Just curious. He did look good but he's much smaller than the type Saban likes. Not many scat backs in this system. Definitely talented, then again the talent level you would need to crack our RB rotation the next 2-3 years is basically off the chart. Yeldon, Drake, Nudie, Henry, Hart and I'm probably forgetting some LOL. most (all) teams would kill to have 1 or 2 of those guys.
I remember hearing about the kid showing out at a few of the HS combines/camps. Glad he is doing well in Linc
