There is a lot of conversation going on between that recruit and one of the schools.

I don't believe in doing that.

It is in the "nature of the beast", so to speak. When a commit turns away from a high profile BCS school, he is asked "What's wrong with you?" When a commit turns away from schools like UAB, the question is asked "What's wrong with the school?"

Unbelievable. I can't believe we lost Kalvin. Hope McGee has a backup plan.

Perhaps most surprising to me is that top tier schools, like Clemson (who had two of the top 5 WRs in the world this past year) are poaching our recruits less than 2 weeks before signing day. Seems extremely odd to me, but I guess I'll view it as a sign McGee knows how to pick 'em.

RE: Visitors this weekend (Champlin article at post #2)
Top tier schools do this because they can. They try for the 5-star players knowing if they can't get their target they can always find someone at a "mid major" level school. Add to that coaches, some new, with Alabama connections - Petrino who hired UAB OC, Auburn and Malzahn, Sweeney at Clemson, Tuberville at Cincy w/UAB QB coach/recruiting coordinator. Add to that the fact that Alabama has become a targeted recruiting area for many BCS teams. Their sell job vs UAB is much easier than most. We need to win to change that. I tend to distrust early commitments because there is just too much time between the Summer and signing day for the commitment to get stale. It may very well be that while we continue our emphasis on local and state players we sign out of area players until we win and local perception changes.
