Alabama continues rolling toward top recruiting class for 2019

Nick Saban

The Crimson Tide continue adding talent to what is currently the No.1 recruiting class in America.

Late last week, Alabama secured a commitment from four-star defensive end Antonio Alfano (Colonia, NJ) who is considered to be among the top-five strong-side ends in the country and also a top-75 overall talent nationally in the class of 2019.

With the addition of Alfano to their 2019 recruiting class, the TIde now have commitments from 13 of the top-300 recruits according to 247sports. That is five more than any other SEC program.

Georgia sits with eight top-300 commitments which is currently second in the SEC.

Here is a breakdown of what positions the Crimson Tide have addressed early on the 2019 recruiting trail.

Quarterbacks (2)

Alabama has received commitments from four-star quarterbacks Taulia Tagovailoa (Alabaster, AL) and Paul Tyson (Trussville, AL). Both prospects are among the top-12 pro-style quarterbacks in the country for the class.

Taulia Tagovailoa is the younger brother of current Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. His football pedigree can’t compare to Tyson’s however, who is the great-grandson of Bear Bryant.

Offensive Linemen (3)

The Crimson Tide has received commitments from three offensive tackles, all of whom are considered to be among the top-30 offensive tackles in the country. Five-star Pierce Quick (Trussville, AL) joins four-stars Amari Knight, (Alabaster, AL) and Tanner Bowles (Glasgow, KY) to give Alabama one of the best offensive line classes in the country for 2019.

Defensive Linemen (4)

Alabama has always done an exceptional job under Nick Saban in recruiting top-notch defensive linemen and that appears to be the case once again in 2019. Alabama has received commitments from four of the best defensive linemen in the country.

Four-star Antonio Alfano (Colonia, NJ) is a top-five strong-side end nationally and four-star defensive end Kevin Harris (Loganville, GA) is among the top-five weak-side ends in the nation.

Alabama has also addressed the interior of the defensive line with four-star defensive tackles Rashad Cheney (Ellenwood, GA) and DJ Dale (Pinson, AL) Both prospects are among the top-20 defensive tackles in the country.

Linebackers (2)

Alabama has received commitments from two of the best linebackers in the country. Four-star Shane Lee (Baltimore, MD) is considered to be a top-five inside linebacker nationally, while four-star King Mwikuta (Lagrange, GA) is among the top-10 outside linebackers in the country.
