Alabama Football: Monday Message Board 6/2

Nic GulasSenior Analyst IJune 1, 2008

Hey Guys,

This right here is my first installment of somewhat of a discussion starter which I'm going to do once a week to generate some good discussions and some great articles. 

The first topic is rather easy to discuss and has plenty of options. 

As many of you know or don't know, Nick Saban likes to get his recruits on campus as soon as possible.  That was no different with his nation's best class from February. 

After plenty of anticipation and speculation about this class, most of them arrived on campus either yesterday or today for good. 

So with their arrival, I am asking for even more speculation about this class. 

Which of the  freshmen reporting this week will have an immediate impact at some point this upcoming season???

There is no doubt about the obvious choices in Julio Jones or Robert Lester, but there are roughly 30 guys coming for next season.  Find a guy who might be under the radar a little bit in this class and could contribute in some of the teams weaker positions right now.  Also, look for a way to spin the story, like who they will replace or how they match up against other players of the same position either on the team or in college football.

Here's a list of all the guys who are reporting over these few days.

  • BJ Scott
  • Julio Jones
  • Robert Lester
  • Star Jackson
  • Michael Williams
  • Jerrell Harris
  • Mark Barron
  • Don'ta Hightower
  • Undra Billingsley
  • Marcel Dareus
  • Jermaine Preyear
  • Robby Green
  • Chris Jordan (Spring enrolled)
  • Terrence Cody
  • Damion Square
  • Tyler Love
  • John Michael Boswell
  • Barrett Jones
  • Alonzo Lawrence
  • Courtney Upshaw
  • Glenn Harbin
  • Corey Smith (Spring enrolled)

Either post your comments about the topic below, or grace us with an awesome article on one of the future stars in Crimson.

That's all for this week, but be looking for this every Monday.  Thanks guys.
