Unreal the names in that article...
Rice and Harris would play for the Title in '88.
George's story is interesting in that he left Purdue after his coach was fired, almost went to play for Miami and ended up at Illinois.
Nagle transferred from West Virginia and went to Louisville. He had a pretty good Fiesta Bowl, as many of us recall.

I would say mike ford and prothro. Ford because he could have so good but grades were always an issue. Prothro just because I watched him single handed beat guntersville up and down the field.
Same here. They touted that kid like he was Godzilla in cleats. I don't think he ever played a down anywhere.
Thread topic lead me to hear a little Barry White music.
"YouAre Music" http://youare.com
Music with "you are" in the title or lyrics.

We got it together, didn't we?
Nobody but you and me.
We got it together, baby.
My first, my last, my everything,
And the answer to all my dreams.
You're my sun, my moon, my guiding star.
My kind of wonderful, that's what you are.
I know there's only, only one like you
There's no way they could have made two.
You're, you're all I'm living for
Your love I'll keep for evermore.
You're the first, my last, my everything.
In you I've found so many things,
A love so new, only you could bring.
Can't you see if you,
You'll make me feel this way,
You're like a first morning dew on a brand new day.
I see so many ways that I can love you,
'Till the day I die....
You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a dream.
You're my first, my last, my everything.
I know there's only one, only one like you
There's no way they could have made two.
Girl, you're my reality.
But I'm lost in a dream,
You're the first, you're the last, my everything.
I thought I was old. :D
Outside of the local guys (Ellington, Stanley, Bowens) I'd guess Tyler Watts.
I remember my Dad telling me about Brodie...but the first that I remember from when I started following recruiting was probably Aaron Johns.
It was only 37 years ago. What's the big deal? ;+)
I remember getting really excited about DJ Hall and Keith Brown in their class. That was the first for me. Been an addict ever since
Not the most popular but Harold James from Arkansas

Don't remember first player, but used to get updates in early 90's through Cecil Hurt's recruiting hotline. He'd update it daily and nothing beat calling in and hearing that we picked up a commitment. Also, first recruiting message board was the Bama group on Prodigy in 1990-1991. Old school Internet!
Enjoying the process. RTR!
Biscuit and Jelks.

Billy Ray for me too. Back then all we had were those Forrest Davis books and the radio.
Times have changed.
Sam Shade and David Palmer the same year. I remember thinking how cool it was when Shade decommitted from Auburn and committed to Bama. Also remember listening to Forrest Davis' radio show for recruiting scoop. It was crap even for then but it was better than nothing.
if " the 1st class" refers to CNS's first Bama class ?
considering he was brought on board in late Dec he inked a very formidable group in 07' . RoMac was the headliner of a group that also included Kareem Jackson & Josh Chapman. nevertheless, the signee that got my attention was Michigan-bound Marquise Maze.
the Shula regime wasnt "on" the 165 lb 3* Maze who all but had his bags packed for the Big House, untill Saban made the call .
