Class of 2009: No. 1 again for Alabama Crimson Tide?
The incoming Crimson Tide freshmen make up what was the top class of 2008.
Wide receiver Julio Jones is the headliner. Jerrell Harris (linebacker), Burton Scott (athlete), and a few others should have an immediate impact on the program in 2008.
Despite these players from the 2008 class becoming stars in the next few years, their positions will not be easily secured.
The class of 2009 has a host of talent from the top of the rankings to the bottom. Young talent will fill depth charts across the country, especially at Alabama with Nick Saban playing the role of master recruiter.
Alabama already has four verbal commitments for 2009.
D.J. Fluker, a four-star defensive tackle playing at Foley (Ala.) High School, committed to Alabama in November 2007. Fluker is just a mammoth human being, and might be converted to an offensive lineman.
