After landing a commitment from Keelon Russell after last week's recruiting visits it was back to work for Kalen DeBoer and his staff. The Tide got an added boost when four-star cornerback Chuck McDonald returned to Tuscaloosa after visiting last weekend to commit in person. The Tide once again hosted a massive group of 2025 recruits and 2026 recruits who attended camp with the following storylines prevailing:

Tide working on some Major Flips

While the Alabama Football team got a massive commitment from four-star defensive back Chuck McDonald who returned to campus to commit there were two high-priority defensive backs on campus. The Tide hosted Ohio State Commit Na'eem Offord this weekend, Offord is a five-star recruit as the top recruit in the state of Alabama and the nation's 8th-ranked player. Despite Offord seemingly being locked in with Ohio State the Crimson Tide were able to get Offord on campus twice in one week and with the staff and Ryan Williams pushing for him Alabama may have a chance.

The Tide also hosted four-star Notre Dame commit Ivan Taylor as Maurice Linguist looks to flip another talented defensive back. The four-star safety is rated as the 13th-best safety in the class and the 120th-best player according to On3. Taylor has been committed to Notre Dame since December of 2023 and the visit came as a shock to many at Notre Dame, making Taylor a player to watch in the month to come.
