Jarvis Landry says he was not taking shot at Patrick Surtain Jr

Jarvis Landry says he was not taking shot at Patrick Surtain Jr

Since he's a walk-on, Braxton Barker will not count toward Alabama's 2018 recruiting class, which still has eight spots to fill by National Signing Day on Wednesday.

Leave it to a play-making receiver to save the day late for Alabama. Alabama also lost two commits to flips, as Quay Walker ended up choosing Georgia and Bobby Brown chose Texas A&M.

Alabama's 19-player class finished the year ranked No. 7 nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, an aggregate of the top major recruiting services.

Saban and his staff was more focused on filling needs instead of the overall strength of the class.

"So rather than reach for somebody, we'd rather solve the issue another way with maybe a more experienced guy down the road", Saban said. We put a lot of work into him.

The nation's top ranked cornerback made his declaration on ESPN Wednesday morning, stunning the LSU coaches and fans alike.

"I think we'll probably have a quarterback join us some kind of way", Saban said, "which I don't think I can comment about".

Still, the Tigers had nine defensive backs in the National Football League in 2017, including Super Bowl winning cornerback Jalen Mills with Philadelphia, to Alabama's seven.

"But, look, when you have really good young players at a position, sometimes it's hard to attract another guy at that particular position", Saban said. Entering Wednesday, LSU was viewed as the heavy favorite for Surtain, who attends high school in the Hurricanes' backyard, at American Heritage School in Plantation, Fla., but has family ties in New Orleans and Baton Rouge and had developed a close relationship with LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond. "So I don't think we struck out anywhere". And with the Crimson Tide, we know that defense is king, which is why it's unsurprising that they also have two stud 4-star cornerbacks coming in with Jalyn Armour-Davis and the second-best JUCO prospect in Saivion Smith. So does that mean we struck out?

So, where does that leave Alabama's class from a rankings standpoint?

In fact, the Tide's 18-member signing class ranked behind several program it has competed against in recent years, including sixth-place Clemson, No. 5 Penn State, No. 4 Southern Cal, No. 3 Texas and runner-up Ohio State.
