The Alabama Crimson Tide currently sits with the 11th-ranked 2019 football recruiting class, according to the 247Sports.com Composite rankings. The class of committed recruits, which features one five-star and three four-star prospects, is currently the sixth-best in the SEC.
It may be too early to focus on the team rankings, as there is plenty of time for Alabama and other schools to add new commits, it’s never to early to look at the class Nick Saban and his staff are compiling.. The four prospects, one on offense and three on defense, have the highest average score of prospects, ahead of every team currently in the top 10.
Here is a look at UA’s 2019 commits:
