so you've got BS committed for '14, that's 9 cause nobody leavin after this year and Saban was just seen checking on Chubb last week at Cedartown? That's bad news for Drake & Hart IMO...
Yeah RB recruiting in 2014 will be iffy for UA. Gonna be interesting to see how it pans out. I see UF, LSU, and UGA having big time RB hauls next year.
what class are all these guys?
Fowler RS Junior
Hart RS soph
Tenpenny Henry and Jones (maybe Kamara) will obviously all be freshmen with chance of redshirt.
scarborough will get at least a look on the other side of the ball, i would imagine. kid is an insane athlete.
a question about kamara: i keep hearing he is going to play the "slot" position at bama, but i'm not exactly sure what that means in the context of your offense. is it a WR who runs the ball sometimes, or an RB that catches a lot of passes? it might help me understand if you could tell me someone who has actually played this "slot" position at bama (and david palmer doesn't count, lol). i know the knew OC you brought in last year has added some different wrinkles and looks, but i've watched you guys a lot the last few years and i can't think of anyone who has actually played the role you're selling to kamara. it seems to exist only in theory. btw, not flaming you bro. i appreciate your input over here.
Bama has been wanting to get edge speed for a while. Kamara offers that to us if he committs. We love to run short yardage drag routes and we want a RB style player with great (shakes) to make plays with the ball in his hands. He will def line up at RB alot too but it would be very very difficult to defend TJ yeldon at RB. Jalston Fowler at HB Cooper at #1 Wide Out Kamara/Chris Black at Slot and OJ howard at TE.
Personally I think both Bo should get a very serious look at the defensive side of the ball. Guy is a freak athlete but I am not sure if that will translate well to reading offense, filling gaps, and making strong aggressive tackles in space. Def would have great closing speed but just how aggressive is he on the defensive side is the important question.

this will be similar to how we use Terry IMO once he recovers....line him up at various positions to get him to the edge.
Its a match up nightmare because you hare having to use both safeties to cover OJ Howard and Kamara. To be honest unless the line just misses an assignment I am not sure it can be covered completely. That would put 1 on 1 with Cooper and Chris Black or Kenny Bell with TJ in the backfield.
LOL.. You have 4 established players already at the RB position and 3 already committed.. LOL.. UGA has two sophs and 1 RB commit
