Nick Saban and his staff still hit the recruiting trail hard, but the news cycle is a little slower this week. Alabama’s 2019 class currently has four prospects committed right now, but is still a work in progress.
Here is the latest on Alabama’s recruiting prospects. All star ratings and rankings come from the 247Sports composite:
- Paris Johnson Jr. was offered by Alabama on Thursday. The 2020 offensive tackle prospect is set to visit Ohio State a couple times next month. The Buckeyes are the favorites in his recruitment, according to the Crystal Ball.

- Jaren Handy decommitted from LSU just 12 days after he committed to the program. Last week Handy, a four-star strong-side defensive end prospect, tweeted that his recruitment is still open. The 96th overall prospect in the 2019 class received an Alabama offer on March 1. Handy named Alabama among his top 10 schools in a later tweet (below).
