As good a year as Alabama had recruiting they let 3 top ten players in the state leave. William Green and Dee Finley to UF and McClain to Clemson. We haven't had a whole lot of success recruiting in that state lately, but that doesn't mean we can't pull prospects they way they did to us this past season.
