As expected, the Alabama Crimson Tide’s 2014 recruiting class has been ranked No. 1 by the major ranking services.
Aided by the surprise commitment of top OLB and Auburn High School product Rashaan Evans, Alabama’s haul included such superstars as athlete/running back Bo Scarbrough, offensive tackle Cameron Robinson and cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
“The biggest challenge for all these guys is how do they develop as a college football player,” Saban told ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi in Tuscaloosa on Wednesday. “I think that’s a challenge for us and for them, and I think that’s something our staff has done a really good job of in the past.
After dropping their final two games of the 2013 season at Auburn and against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl, Alabama’s off-season moves have shaken up the college football world. The hiring of Lane Kiffin as offensive coordinator, the signing of former Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jacob Coker, and landing another elite signing class prove that Saban and company have no intention of letting last season begin a trend.
