Alabama is off to an excellent recruiting start, and you should expect the Crimson Tide to continue their success. SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner will answer the Recruiting Question of the Day each weekday. You can ask him your questions on Twitter or on Facebook. Find our previous questions and answers here.
There are several Alabama targets who are being recruited at different positions than what they are listed as on their recruiting profiles. Those same recruits are also being recruited by other schools at different positions.
Antonio Alfano, who is set to announce his commitment to either Alabama, Georgia or Penn State on Friday, is being recruited as a defensive end by Alabama. Georgia is recruiting him as a defensive tackle and before he cut his list of schools down to three, schools on the West Coast were recruiting him at tight end and linebacker. That’s how good of an athlete Alfano is and why he’s so coveted by Alabama.
Devonta Lee, 4-star WR, Amite (La.)
Devonta Lee’s recruitment likely will come down to Alabama or LSU, and both schools want him on different sides of the ball. The Crimson Tide like him better on defense as a safety while the Tigers like him at wide receiver. Lee told SEC Country that he doesn’t have a preference on which side of the ball he plays in college.
Christian Harris, 4-star ATH, University Lab (Baton Rouge, La.)
Christian Harris’ recruitment also likely will come down to Alabama or LSU, except this time the Tide like Harris on defense as an inside linebacker and the Tigers like him as an H-back. Harris told SEC Country that he was leaning toward playing defense when he gets to college. Harris is one of the Tide’s top inside linebacker targets in the 2019 class.
