Alabama Football Recruiting: Crimson Tide Must Make Offer to 4-Star ATH
The Alabama Crimson Tide already have one of the best 2013 recruiting classes in college football, but that doesn't mean they can grow complacent. They need to continue bringing exceptional athletes into the fold.
One player that they need to target is all around athlete and 4-star recruit (according to ESPN Recruiting Nation) Chevoski Collins.
Your thoughts on Alabama's 2013 class so far:
I don't think I'd be going out on a limb to say that Collins is probably not a need for this Alabama 2013 class. Like I said, they are already one of the best in college football. Of their 18 commits so far, 10 are 4-star recruits, according to Rivals.
The Crimson Tide also had the good fortune of getting a commitment from 5-star recruit Reuben Foster, who is the No. 1 ranked linebacker in the nation and No. 2 overall player.
It's safe to say Alabama doesn't have many needs.
At this point then, the Crimson Tide can focus on luxury players. They may not necessarily need a player like Collins, but it wouldn't hurt to have him, right?
He's got a ton of offers on his plate as far as his commitment is concerned—Baylor, New Mexico State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas,Texas Tech, Utah and Vanderbilt—but according to Damon Sayles of ESPN, he's hoping for one from Nick Saban and company:
Collins on Monday said he and the Crimson Tide have been in contact on a regular basis, and he’s hoping Alabama coach Nick Saban will extend an offer. Collins has been in touch with his primary recruiting contact, running backs coach Burton Burns, and he said the talks have been positive.
“They’ve been talking about offering me and playing corner for them,” Collins said of Alabama. “They said they like the way I play and want to get me on campus. It’s been pretty serious, and it makes me feel really good.”
If Chovoski wants an offer, I say why not extend it to him? He has the ability to do a lot for whichever team he lands with.
In 2011 he notched 705 yards and 11 touchdowns on 94 rushing attempts, threw the ball 45 times for 430 yards and four touchdowns (also three interceptions) and he grabbed one interception on defense.
Chovoski is the definition of a versatile athlete, and one could only imagine how Saban and Alabama could find ways to use him outside of playing corner. While the SEC is known for it's powerful running games and defense, having an athlete that can do multiple things for you on the football field can be the difference between winning and losing a game.
Alabama should make an offer.
