Didn't we recruit him?
Not sure how much we actually recruited him, but I know a bunch of people were going after him as a RB. Had a pretty solid RB film, if I recall correctly.
"Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself." -Coach Bryant
yes, I think it as between us and Michigan. He went to UM and then later transferred to Rice. Someone can correct me if wrong.
One of the most electric RBs I have ever seen in person. Went to Michigan and started as freshman for a while but hated it. Transferred (due to a family issue) and has been meh for the last 4 yrs. Still a legend down in Houston.
I believe Bama did recruit him to some extent. He didn't appear to take us seriously, though. I recall he played in an all-star game with Damion Square, who reported that Sam seemed incredulous about his commitment to the Tide, saying something like, "why would you want to play for Alabama?" Of course, we won the BCSNC the following season. So, Sam didn't get it, then. I'll bet he gets it, now. Still, his high school video, hurdling the tackler is one of the most impressive moves I've ever seen.

Yea, remember this?
"Oh, wow. A little (upsetting)," said defensive tackle Damion Square of Houston. "I would've loved to have Applewhite. If he wants to win championships, and I know Applewhite does, then he'll stay. You don't win no championships at UT, man. You win championships at UA. But he's got to do what he's got to do."
The Auburn fans could not contain their laughter. Square might graduate with three rings....more than UT has in their history.

The Applewhites stayed at the same hotel as did we on game weekends. After Nick told Major to look for another job, we've never seen them since.
Not as many 5'8" guys to hurdle over in college.
Yeah I remember that highlight video. I don't know how seriously he looked at Bama
