Recruiting wars: Saban, in hiring Auburn’s James Willis, gets perfect replacement for Lance Thompson

So this is the way it plays out in the high schools of the top prospects in the Mobile area during the next two weeks.
Lance Thompson still calls and visits, but whereas last week he wore Alabama crimson and extolled the virtues of the Crimson Tide, now he wears Tennessee orange and calls for Volunteers.

James Willis still calls and visits, but whereas last weekend he wore Auburn orange and blue and pumped up the future with Gene Chizik, now he wears Alabama crimson and talks about the history of 12 national championships.

Do you think anyone will notice?
