-According to a report by Andrew Bone of Rivals.com, five-star recruit Teradja Mitchell has narrowed his schools down to five, and Alabama is one of them.

Ohio State, Florida State, Clemson and LSU are the other four schools still in the running for Mitchell.
Mitchell told Bone, “I visited Alabama a couple of weeks ago. Their process for the players there is something that really sticks out. They are constantly putting players in the NFL and winning a lot. I want to win at the next level. That really stuck out to me, the process and the grind.”

–Justyn Ross, the No. 1 player in Alabama, really enjoyed his visit to Clemson. Ross tweeted out that Clemson was one of the best visits he has taken so far in his recruitment. The Tigers already have the No. 1 recruit in the country in quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and that seems to be a factor in Ross’ decision. He tagged Lawrence in his tweet. Ross is a five-star wide receiver who ranks as the No. 22 player in the class. He is from Phenix City.
I can honestly say that today was one of the best visits I've ever been on. 💯 #ALLIN @atxlete @Trevorlawrencee
