The Alabama Crimson Tide are coming off two National Championships in 2012, and make no mistake about it—the second one is every bit as important as the first.
In addition to lifting the BCS hardware this past January, the Tide again rolled in February, signing the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class.
And one thing is for sure: If you want to win championships in college football that involve a crystal football, you had better be competing for the national championships given out by Rivals and Scout.
In the early going, Bama's 2013 recruiting class is shaping up to be every bit as stellar as 2012. The Tide have already secured commitments from nine players and are legitimately in the running for every one of the top five recruits for the coming year, as determined by Rivals.
But why worry about the future when you can celebrate the present? Here are the Tide's nine verbally committed prospects and an idea of what they can bring to the table in 2013 and beyond.
