Looks like a tough pull, hope the coaches can sweet talk him. I'd provide a link, but I don't know how:Cry:

Hmmm, Alabama, or NU. Which would you choose? One is already there and the other is trying to get there.

Depends on the kid's priorities. Is playing early on an up and coming team, with your best friend, at an institution with tremendous academic support more important than playing on a perennial power where he'll have to wait in line to earn playing time, but have the opportunity to play close to home? It's not out of the realm of possibility that he looks at his options.

Exactly.

And what kind of relationship does he develop w/ Frost, Chinander, and probably most importantly Barrett Ruud. I have a lot of confidence in Ruud as both a coach and recruiter. Let him develop a relationship w/ Jackson, get him up there for a visit, and see what happens.

4-year scholarship vs. 1-year scholarship and "we'll re-evaluate where you stand after that".

Even so, it will be tough to get a kid out of Alabama that Alabama wants. Being the best friend of Smothers is the only reason for hope in this case.

The good thing about this guy is that now we can fawn/gush/worry about this kid and whether we have a chance for the next year, or we can at least start on the the 20th of January after NPG makes his announcement.
