Recruiting Summary: Sweet Home Alabama

The Alabama Crimson Tide has an advantage that few schools enjoy: many of the top high school talents reside in their home state.

The thought of playing for a top-tier program close to home is a great selling point. That’s why it wasn’t much of a surprise when Kadyn Proctor, the second-best offensive tackle prospect on most major sites, including SI99, decided to stay home and commit to the Iowa Hawkeyes.

However, the Crimson Tide has had more than its fair share of luck with in-state prospects. According to 247Sports, three of the top 10 recruits have committed to Alabama, including the nation’s second-best cornerback (Jahlil Hurley) and safety (Tony Mitchell).
