Alabama Football Expecting Big Recruiting Weekend

9 of 10

Henry Ruggs – WR – 6′ ,  175 lbs. – Montgomery, AL – Offered

Devonta Smith – WR – 6′ 1″ , 160 lbs. – Amite, LA – Offered

Make no mistake, Alabama wants both.  The problem is there may only be room for one of them.  Two other 4-star receivers, Jerry Jeudy and Tyrell Shavers are already enrolled.

The limited available slots could mean that the first of the pair to commit is in and the other is out. Some recruiting experts are thinking Ruggs is the higher priority for the Tide and Smith is the backup if Ruggs chooses elsewhere.

Florida and Florida State are the primary competition for Ruggs. Auburn and Louisville appear to be on the outside for his signature.

If Smith does not roll with the Tide, he is expected to go with Florida State, LSU or Miami.

Closing with either Ruggs or Smith would be a big win for Alabama.
