Map Shows Alabama's Recruiting Reach is Nationwide


Virginia native Da’Shawn Hand announced today that he would join the Crimson Tide. His commitment is the latest example of how Nick Saban has created a nationwide recruiting powerhouse at Alabama, and the map above shows just that.

With the top recruiting class now an almost certainty, Alabama has received commitments literally from coast to coast. Not only has Saban been dominating the state of Alabama, he has been pulling commitments from the west coast, northeast and midwest. Not even recruiting hotbeds Florida, Texas and Louisiana are safe from Saban’s reach.

According to 247Sports, the list of Tide commits looks like this:

Cameron Robinson West Monroe, LA
Da’Shawn Hand Woodbridge, VA
Christian Miller Columbia, SC
Bo Scarbrough Bradenton, FL
David Cornwell Norman, OK
Kalvaraz Bessent Kingsland, GA
Ross Pierschbacher Cedar Falls, IA
Ronnie Clark Calera, AL
Zach Whitley Houston, TX
Viane Talamaivao Corona, CA
Dominick Jackson San Mateo, CA
Cameron Sims Monroe, LA
JC Hassenauer Saint Paul, MN
Stephen Roberts Opelika, AL
Derek Kief Cincinnati, OH
Johnny Dwight Rochelle, GA
Shaun Hamilton Montgomery, AL
Joshua Casher Mobile, AL
Keith Holcombe Tuscaloosa, AL
O.J. Smith Bossier City, LA
Montel McBride Plant City, FL
Chris Williams Kingsland, GA
JK Scott Denver, CO

With reach like this, it makes Alabama’s claim to be the true national champions all the more meaningful.
