Patrick Surtain, 5-Star CB, Announces Commitment

He was at Clemson on January 25 and Miami on February 1.

The college football universe shifts its focus to the nation's top unsigned recruits on Wednesday.

But it has become a two-team race.

"I think in every recruiting class, there's always a guy that you get that you thought you might not get, and there's also a guy that you thought you might get that you didn't get", Saban said Wednesday.

The Crimson Tide had to fight tooth and nail over Georgia, but ultimately squeaked out an overtime win to give Saban and Co. yet another title.

Surtain's father is Patrick Surtain, a former three-sport star at Edna Karr in New Orleans in the 1990s who won state championships in football and basketball while also running track.

His son has family in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas.

"That relationship with Corey has been for many years", Scarborough said.

The five-star lineman is weighing his options between Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Notre Dame and MI.

Alabama's 19-player class finished the year ranked No. 7 nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, an aggregate of the top major recruiting services.

A top-10 class, of course, is nothing to take for granted.

Alabama has made a strong push, though, and has been more of a "DBU" on the field, outranking LSU in pass defensive efficiency over the last three consecutive seasons.

The 4-star defensive star is the No. 5 safety in the nation.

The five-star prospect out of Plantation, Florida, was down to Alabama and LSU, but seemingly had the Tigers in the lead for quite some time. Since then, Alabama has had the No. 1 recruiting class in eight of the past 11 years.

Alabama is now ranked No. 9 by Rivals.com with 18 signees and is not expected to make a huge jump on Wednesday.

Campbell has Georgia and Alabama high on his list of prospective suitors, while Miami is trying to make a surge at the last minute to sign him as well.

Chase picked LSU over Auburn and will join 5-star receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. from Bossier City. He was at LSU on January 11. "I think this year was different because of the coaching changes".
