Five-Star Prospect Jadeveon Clowney Visits 'Bama
Saban is currently assembling what can only be described as a “dream team” for the 2011 season.
Alabama has received several verbal commitments for the 2011 campaign, and are currently in the process of giving the
“five-star treatment”…to several five-star recruits.
Last week the No. 1 prospect in the country, Jadeveon Clowney, visited Alabama.
Clowney, who is a 6-foot-6, 247-pound defensive end from South Carolina, was accompanied by his high school coach during his visit to Tuscaloosa.
The South Carolina high school star was very impressed with 'Bama, however, the most impressed seemed to be his high school coach, Bobby Carroll.
Coach Carroll had nothing but high praise for the University of Alabama, describing the visit as the most amazing thing he’d ever seen in his 28 years of coaching. Carroll said viewing the 13 national championships and the Heisman Trophy…was a breath-taking experience.
So…what did Jadeveon Clowney really think of ‘Bama?
Clowney apparently got to hang out with several players and received the grand tour. Clowney said he was treated like royalty and had an awesome experience.
As for Jadeveon Clowney the football player, he had 24 sacks last season and is one of only 11 players to receive the honor of a five-star rating from Rivals.com. For those unfamiliar with the ratings scale, a five-star rating is considered the “cream of the crop”…a “can’t miss” prospect.
In respect to visits from five-star talent, Clowney is certainly not alone. Coming soon I’ll provide a short overview concerning several five-star prospects who have visited, and plan to visit, the University of Alabama this summer.
