NSD 2015: Alabama signs another elite class

-For yet another recruiting season the Alabama Crimson Tide have inked one of the top signing classes in the nation. 247Sports and ESPN have each proclaimed Alabama the
No. 1 class in the nation while Rivals and Scout have the Crimson Tide at No. 2 behind USC.

-While the 2015 edition of national signing day proved quite uneventful for Alabama in terms of drama and suspense, not only did the Crimson Tide sign yet another superb class, 'Bama also managed to sign all prior verbal commitments leading up to signing day. While such an effort often goes unrecognized by many fans, securing what you have is vital.

-In respect to new additions to the class, Alabama inked 4-star wide receiver Daylon Charlot this morning. Charlot, a former 'Bama verbal commitment prior to reopening his recruitment, came back to the Tide after testing the waters at LSU. Charlot had been viewed as a 'Bama lock for roughly a month or more.

-In respect to signing day targets, Alabama hit on the aforementioned Charlot but failed to sign 5-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson and 4-star wide receiver K.J. Hill. Although Alabama was never viewed as the favorite for either player down the stretch, the Crimson Tide still had an outside shot. When it came to their final decisions, Hill selected Ohio State while Jefferson signed with Florida.

-As noted in a prior post, Alabama commitment Christian Bell, a 3-star linebacker from Hoover, AL, has indeed accepted a grayshirt and will enroll in January of 2016. Due to his grayshirt status, Bell will not be counted in the class of 2015.
