A tidbit or two....
When I was told this I thought it was great. Apparently when CNS was on his way to Foley High last Friday, he passed through a town called Summerdale. In Summerdale right off Highway 59 there is this little tiny music store called Cote's Music Store. It is super tiny. I've lived here practically my whole life and I just noticed it existed like a year ago. My dad is really good friends with the guy who owns the store (David Cote) and has bought some nice guitars and instruments there over the years. Well apparently while passing through Summerdale, in all of this whirlwind that is recruiting and "CNS NEVER STOPS" Ole Nick decided to stop by this little music store and look around for a bit. The owner, knowing good and well what was going on, decided to just treat him like a regular customer because he could tell Nick probably didn't have a lot of time to spend in the store. Nick looked around a bit, told him he had some nice stuff and he'd like to come back but that his prices were too high!
Okay kidding about the price joke but that's how he told it to me when I first heard it and I about fell out of my chair. Everything else is true though, even about him coming back again. I wanted you all to hear it as I heard it. But I just love this. Coming from a family where there's quite a few workaholics and knowing CNS reputation as a man that never stops, it just makes me happy to visualize him being in his car as he's driving down the road in this tiny town with probably one million things on his mind seeing star player after star player around the country and he sees a little music store and he gets the vehicle stopped to go inside and look for a second. It's not a big deal but I just love it.
Anyways, I was subbing at Foley friday and I'm really close to the team as I help coach as well, Darius Paige was in my homeroom (as he will be this upcoming Friday) and my 4th block, he told me that Nick asked him was there any worry about him and Florida State and to ask him about how he liked his official the weekend prior. Darius told him (and me) absolutely not to worry about FSU and he's crimson bound and that there is nothing for him anywhere but Tuscaloosa and that his official was unbelievable. He talked with Demarcus Bingham too, Foley's junior wide receiver who was also with Darius in T-town about his visit up there and to let him know that they are evaluating him at receiver but that they also like him as a safety. Needless to say, Foley's new starting safety is Demarcus Bingham (he will play both ways).
Hope you guys enjoyed this.

Thx for sharing. CNS is a man among boys.
Thank you for sharing! I heard that store was now called "Nick's". jk.
Not a chance! CoachSaban has nothing on his mind but recruits with a week until signing day. (G)
Summerdale is my hometown. Most of my family still live there. Its one of the best little towns to grow up in. Everyone knows each other for the most part and the people love being involved with the school and community. The school is as close to being a private Christian school as a public school can be. Roll your windows down and take a deep breath when you drive through. It'll make you smarter.
I really want to see Bingham get an offer.
not related to signusup are you...he was one of our all time great info providers a few years back
He's still around. Posted on Darius Paige recently.
thanks as always for your info FOLEY...it's always jam up and jelly tight.....

So you're saying this kid could be the next Julio or Robert Lester... AWESOME!!!!! RTR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew this picture was legit.....Saban does in fact shred between 5 stars.
That he stopped is even more remarkable because Saban isn't known for wasting a lot of time, even when he travels.
However, if the owner wants to make sure he comes back and likes what he sees, Saban is a big Eagles fan.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Even after they hired Chip Kelly? (g)
Isn't his son big into music? Could be the reason for the stop.
Me too. He's such a good kid and has all the tools you want in a receiver or safety. He's done a really good job at receiver the past two seasons, ill see if I can find his stats so far. Pretty impressive. At the same time though I can't wait to see him play safety. He already looks like Mark Barron now he'll be playing the same position lol. #headhunter
Haha no. I know who he is though (in real life) and when he posts its dead on.
It's been a long day and I hate the eagles man.
Isn't Bingham Julio's cousin? Or am I making that up?
No, but I'm sure he's Reuben Fosters brother.
