No brain buster here, but IMO this is what really sets Alabama apart from other programs . . . their ability to bring in top notch talent at every position every year. Any school can put together a good/great class, but doing it year in and year out is what really sets those special schools apart from the rest. Hoke is doing a great job of this. It's easy to bring in a great recruit and tell them they have instant playing time because there is nobody ahead of them. The real test is can you bring the same caliber of athlete year after year, and tell him it might be a while before you get your shot. This is what Hoke is managing to do right now with even getting kids like this to visit. The program is in great hands!

Our primary concern has been for him as a person, and that will not change. Will is a part of our family, and we will continue to offer the resources to help him learn and grow. I am pleased with his progress to this point, and he knows that must continue every day moving forward.
