    Jul 26, 2013, 2:30 PM EST

    Marshall Henderson

While there certainly are particular characteristics a college program wants its…

  12. Could Alabama’s ‘Fab Five’ be a package deal?

    Jul 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EST

    Jerod Haase

    I’m getting kind of sick of all this talk about package deals in recruiting. Most of it is smoke, a quote that gets twisted around or a kid that’s looking to get attention by saying that he’s linked to another player. Think about it like this: one top 40 recruit rooms with another top 40…
