Not Day 1 but it might be hard to keep this talent off of the field as the season progresses. To me, Landon is the best DB we have signed under Nick Saban... reminds me of Ed Reed
No.. i see him playing special teams and getting action as a safety this year, and then replacing Lester next year.... LC and HaHa as the starting safeties in 2013.....
Every year people need a lesson in seperating recruiing/high school hype from the real world. Almost ALL Bama's recruits are studs and the battles are fierce. The day we want freshmen starting have hopefully faded away. If he starts all I can say is DAMN!
IMO. If he doesn't start it just goes to show that this program is on another level. With his talent he would start at any other school from day 1 guaranteed. We are lucky to get him because if he doesn't start day 1 he likely won't be a starter until his junior year, and that's just crazy with his talent.
To be fair...he's the only one in the discussion, really. I agree with you, though. I don't see him starting - as I mentioned before, I see him in a Mark Barron/Vinnie Sunseri as freshmen role.
But, as a Fr. - 5* - 100, here's what he has to beat out for PT at Safety:
N. Perry - Jr. - 4* - 90
J. Williams - Jr. - 4* - 90
H. Clinton-Dix - So. - 5* - 98
V. Sunseri - So. - 3* - 86
and at Nickel:
J. Fulton - Jr. - 4* - 97
T. Dixon - Jr. - 4* - 95
D. Belue - Jr. - 4* - 95
J. Washington - So. 3* - 88
B. Sylve - So. - 4* - 94
G. Smith - Fr. - 4* - 96

Who were the two running backs that Clemson had that were all world when we beat them in 08?
Though some of it is unproven, but the depth and talent at both safety spots is ridiculous. All guys on our 3 deep could possibly star at other schools. I agree with most of you thinking he will get alot of snaps in on D and on ST but probably not at safety. He may be the most talented but the other guys are no slouches and they have a year or more in the system. When the talent is so high, I would think any little advantage is huge. Of course I could be wrong and he starts from day one. If he does, I don't think that is a negative statement on the other guys, but instead shows how good he really is.
