Nowhere in the word "Alabama" is the letter "D", but perhaps we should rethink that.
Coming off having arguably the greatest defense in college football, the Crimson Tide reloaded on national signing day, bringing in 15 signees (the other two were placekicker Adam Griffin and athlete Cyrus Jones).
Leading the way could be a pair of 5-star safeties who might end up rivaling 2011's brilliant duo of Robert Lester and Mark Barron.
At 6'4", 204 pounds, Eddie Williams is a long and rangy athlete who can cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. And 6'0", 199-pound Landon Collins, a Louisiana native who famously spurned LSU despite his mother's wishes, is one of the nation's most ready-to-play prospects.
Both could play in 2012, as could 4-star cornerbacks Travell Dixon (6'2", 200) of Eastern Arizona Junior College and Atlanta St. Pius X's Geno Smith (5'11, 180).
With the majority of its fantastic set of linebackers now prepping for the NFL scouting combine, Alabama had to reload.
And boy did it reload.
The Tide signed five 4-star prospects in Ryan Anderson (6'3", 250), Denzell Devall (6'2", 236), Tyler Hayes (6'3", 215), Dillon Lee (6'4", 220) and Reggie Ragland (6'4", 245).
All are talented guys who obviously aren't afraid of competition.
Alabama didn't sign any defensive ends, but perhaps there are plans for one of five defensive tackle signees to slide outside.
That group includes 4-star prospects Dalvin Tomlinson (6'2", 270) and heavily recruited Korren Kirven (6'4", 272), as well as 3-stars Dakota Ball (6'2", 292), Darren Lake (6'3", 330) and Alphonse Taylor (6'6", 340).
Loaded. Just loaded.
