Nick Saban is off to a great start recruiting the Class of 2013

In 2010, Alabama failed to defend its 2009 national championship, going 10-3. Coach Nick Saban is determined not to repeat that failure in 2012.

While national championships are certainly the goal in Tuscaloosa, they would not be possible without a successful recruiting process. 

According to ESPN, Alabama finished among the top three teams in recruiting over the past four years. Most recently, ESPN ranked Alabama’s 2012 recruiting class as No. 1 in the nation.

With the recent addition of Paul Gonnella to the Alabama staff as the director of player personnel, it's no surprise that the class of 2013 could be even better than the class of 2012. Currently, there is one 5-star recruit and 12 4-star recruits in the class of 2013 compared to two 5-star and 12 4-star recruits in the Class of 2012.

Here's a closer look at the class of 2013.
