Over the weekend, Alabama got verbal commitments from David Cornwell who is the top rated pro style quarterback in the country according to ESPN. Cornwell picked the Tide over Oklahoma, Tennessee and Georgia, among others.
Joining Cornwell is Ohio WR Derek Kief who used his entire family in a video to make his announcement. Since Coach Saban’s arrival in Tuscaloosa, recruiting has broadened its scope to a more nationwide focus. While Saban and his staff rarely lose an in state player, they have been very successful in picking the best and brightest from around the nation.
Expect one or two more quarterbacks in the 2014 class. Depth is important as is fit. With the recent departures of quarterbacks from the depth charts, the battle for quarterback of the future is just getting underway.
