Alabama enters the chase for Joe Montana’s quarterbacking son

When does an early scholarship offer become genuinely newsworthy at such an early stage in the recruiting game? When the target happens to be the son of one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
Alabama’s football program has officially entered the recruiting race for Westlake Village, Calif., quarterback Nick Montana, offering the son of NFL legend Joe Montana a scholarship late last week.

The younger Montana tells Scout.com in this story that he has been in touch with Alabama the past few weeks and has spoken with “Coach Mac” (Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain) and Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban.
