Alabama Football continues to clean up on the recruiting trail, landing several commitments across multiple classes this month and showing no signs of letting up.

The latest pledge came on Saturday from 2025 5-star receiver Jaime Ffrench Jr. Ffrench Jr. is considered the no. 13 overall prospect and the fourth-best wide receiver in the country by the 247Sports Composite. He is a versatile playmaker that is equally adept at making contested grabs in traffic and racking up yards after the catch in the open field. According to his scouting report from 247Sports Director of Recruiting Andrew Ivins, he has the ability to excel outside or in the slot at the next level.

With Ffrench Jr.’s commitment, Alabama Football is way ahead of its typical schedule in the 2025 class. The Crimson Tide already has five commitments in that cycle, and all five are blue chip prospects ranked in the top-200 in the country. Interestingly enough, all of them also play on the offensive side of the ball.

In addition to 4-star offensive linemen Mason Short and Dontrell Glover, Bama has landed verbal commitments from three of the most electric skill players in the country. Saraland wide receiver Ryan Williams sits on the top of that list. He is the no. 3 overall player in the class, and the top-ranked skill player. There is speculation that he may even reclassify into the class of 2024.

With Williams firmly in 2025 for the moment and Ffrench Jr. now in the boat, Alabama Football can lay claim to two of the best receivers in the class. It also has a commitment from Anthony “Turbo” Rogers, the top running back in the 2025 class and one of the fastest players in the country.

Envisioning Ryan Williams, Jaime Ffrench Jr., and Anthony Rogers on the same offense in Tuscaloosa is scary for the rest of college football. Even scarier, they would theoretically be joining 5-star playmakers such as 2024 receiver Perry Thompson and 2023 running back Justice Haynes.

Who would have the privilege of quarterbacking such a unit? We can only speculate, as we aren’t even sure who will play QB this fall, but Bama would likely have 5-star talents such as Ty Simpson and Julian Sayin on campus.

Next. Who will play the Star?. dark

Alabama Football is far from done in the 2024 class, much less the 2025 cycle which won’t be complete for another 18 months. Still, Coach Nick Saban and his staff continue to excel on the recruiting trail, and the future looks very bright in Tuscaloosa for years to come.
