Crimson Commitment: National Signing Day 2010
(AP Photo/Ed Reinke)
In February of 2009, Alabama waited until late in the afternoon to see if star running back Trent Richardson would hold true to his word and commit to Alabama. Richardson did sign with the Tide, and 'Bama concluded National Signing Day on a high note…late in the afternoon.
In 2010 the day was rather uneventful, and National Signing Day was
over by 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning. If 2009 was a day of drama…2010 was more like a day of paid programming.
As expected, Alabama lost 5-star defensive back Keenan Allen, as he officially signed with California. Other than the Allen departure, Alabama sealed all 26 commitments…as expected.
The Tide had some “flirtations” in the person of Shon Coleman (offensive tackle) and James Stone (offensive guard), but like many projected, Coleman and Stone maintained verbal commitments and signed with Auburn and Tennessee, respectively.
