Alabama Football Expecting Big Recruiting Weekend

7 of 10

Christopher Allen – LB – 6′ 4″, 234 lbs – Baton Rouge, LA – Committed

Alabama has visited with Allen twice in the last ten days. First by Jeremy Pruitt and more recently Nick Saban and Tosh Lupoi also called on the 4-star linebacker.

LSU is fighting hard to flip Allen and he had an official visit with the Tigers last weekend. Following the visit, Allen stated he remains committed to Alabama but acknowledged LSU had made up some ground.

Adding his primary recruiter Burton Burns with Pruitt, Lupoi and Saban gives Alabama a dominating recruiting lineup.  Against a group of such outstanding recruiters, Coach O’s purported recruiting magic will be tested.

Having already lost Baton Rouge and IMG Academy, 5-star Dylan Moses must have embarrassed Coach O. If LSU cannot pull off the Chris Allen flip, Coach O’s “big-time recruiter” rep may be fading.
