first class i followed ?
O' lord that was many moons ago .... Richard Todd perhaps ?
my very first was Jeff Dunn QB out of Arkansas if memory serves. Was suppose to be the next big thing.
then the one that really hooked me was shawn alexander. his film was spectacular.........he looked like the second coming of earl campbell on film. out of Kentucky and I remember thinking how cool it would be if we could pull this kid from up there.
Freddie Roach. I started to really get into the recruiting side of things after The Dubose years.
Mac Tyler, Sam Matthews, David Paine, Chris Reier
"Touch that thang four" - Courtney Upshaw
Fred Rouse. I thought he was going to be the difference for Bama. He chose FSU and did nothing with his career. I was hooked on recruiting after following his recruitment though.
cheryl....... oh wait,you were talking about recruits,weren't you?
IF IT FEELS GOOD,YOU AIN'T DOING IT RIGHT!
Joined Rivals during the Andre Smith recruitment.
So Tim Tebow?
Tyler Love. Was going to join Smith to make he Oline unstoppable. Second five star in two years... bama was on the rebound. Jokes on me...
Damien Jeffries and Kendrick Burton. When we signed those guys, I thought they'd go 1 and 2 in the draft.
Jeff Dunn was from North Carolna.
A couple of names from first class at UA that I lived and died with were Charlie Dare and Robert Jones, class of '88.
The player that got me obsessed with recruiting was Emmit Smith and, to some extent, Lectron Williams.

My first recruiting intrest, Brodie Croyle via Mobile Press Register...
... To my first BOL days on the old site... (my handle Kyle4Bama, now I mooch my buddies from time to time - don't judge me!) ... Was the cornerback from the pcola area last name Glenn? I was intrigued by his talent and his story of diabetes... I hope I got his name right... Was one of the first 4 star corners Saban landed...
First one I really remember was Tebow. Had followed it some starting around 04
Chris Lett. I think he actually committed to CMS.
Back beore recruiting became a national machine, it must have been in about 1980
..Walter Lewis, Paul Ott Carruth, Mike McQueen, Mike Rodriques and Linnie Patrick to name a few. Bama received committments from 8 of the top 50 in Nation. This was my first occassion to see recruiting covered nationally... Almost forgot about Joe Carter from Starkville..

He did. I wish that he'd been able to play. Wasn't he diabetic?
Yes he was.
