I know this is discussed a lot...but...
The other night I was listening to Sports Talk Radio late and they kept mentioning "Today 3 Alabama Juniors declared that they were leaving early for the NFL"...
It just hit me. Just a Few years ago, there would only be a few guys who even played in the NFL after they left Bama...now we've had back to back years of 4 or 5 guys drafted in the 1st round...and we have multiple guys who can leave after 3 years.
Just amazing the Talent Coach Saban and Staff have assembled. Great time to be a Bama Fan! Roll Tide!
Yep. And days like those where Jr. Stars forgo their senior seasons are what helps keep the recruiting going at such a high level. It takes so many things working together of course but that may be one of the most important for the elite kids. They know chances are good that if they keep working they will have a shot at the next level. So who can help them achieve that the best? When you show year after year your a program that is not only....
Helping kids maximize their potential
Teaching them the right way
Having them work in the classroom
Helping them grow as people
and...continually putting some of the best into the league
You have everything a top kid could possibly want. Some may go other places, but they know already they won't find any place that gives as much as Alabama does to them. That is one heck of a position to be in.
