National signing day is over, and Alabama has come away with the top recruiting class once again. The Crimson Tide landed six 5-star recruits on NSD, including 5-star OLB Rashaan Evans. Evans hails from Auburn, Ala., and many thought he would head to the hometown Auburn Tigers.

B/R's Adam Lefkoe (@AdamLefkoe) checked in with AL.com's Matt Scalici (@MattScalici), who explained the lead-up to Evans' decision and why he ended up in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Watch the video as Scalici explains why he thinks Evans could potentially play his freshman year.
