Once National Signing Day comes to an end, the college football world, from a fan prospective, enters the hibernation period.
Thankfully, for ‘Bama fans, Nick Saban and his staff have no concept of such an interlude.
During a period on the calendar where college basketball reigns, Alabama received their eighth verbal commitment of 2013 when running back Tyren Jones pledged to UA, Tuesday night.
Jones visited Tuscaloosa last weekend during Alabama’s “Junior Day” recruiting event. The occasion was the second “Junior Day” function Alabama has held in 2012.
Jones, a product of Marietta, Georgia, is considered a four-star talent per Rivals.com and arguably the top running back prospect in the state of Georgia. Jones selected the Crimson Tide over the likes of Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee.
