Alabama head coach Nick Saban has a handful of commitments in the Tide's 2013 class that are capable of seeing the field early and often next season.

Fresh off a third national championship in the last four seasons, Nick Saban’s 24-hour celebration rule has given way to offseason workouts, and the process of securing the next batch of future Tide stars before National Signing Day next month. 

Receiver Amari Cooper and running back T.J. Yeldon were just a pair of the many true freshmen that played a significant role in propelling the Tide to another title, despite losing a boatload of talent from the 2011 title team. 

Saban and his staff are in position to land another banner crop of prep stars. But which current commits have the potential to make an impact similar to the aforementioned duo of skill players that landed on the SEC’s 2012 All-Freshmen team?

A big part of the success for players like Yeldon and Cooper was a product of their ability to fill a need combined with enrolling in January to get a head start on their college careers. 

With that in mind, identifying the major threats to see the field early from the 2013 class will consist of finding areas of need and plugging in a mature talent that can take advantage of a small window of opportunity. 

Here are four 2013 recruits most likely to start as freshmen.
