The Alabama Crimson Tide had a successful Early Signing Period, signing 14 of their 18 commitments to secure their place as a top-five recruiting class in the country. However, recruiting the 2018 class isn’t done with traditional signing day on Feb. 7 still looming. Four players (OLB Quay Walker, DT Bobby Brown, ATH Vernon Jackson, TE Michael Parker) are all currently committed and have yet to sign, but here are three other currently uncommitted prospects they can still sign:
3) CB Tyson Campbell – 5 percent chance to sign
The first of two cornerbacks on this list – both from American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL – Campbell is the No. 2 cornerback in the country and No. 25 overall player. He has great size (6-foot-3, 180-pounds) and can play both on the outside and nickel because of his speed and quickness. Georgia and Miami are thought to be ahead of Alabama in his recruitment with the Bulldogs being the favorite, but the Tide are still in the mix.
2) OT Nicholas Petit-Frere – 35 percent chance to sign
Petit-Frere is the No. 2 offensive tackle in the country and would help sure up Alabama’s offensive line long-term. He’s a great athlete with excellent strength and good feet, along with being effective both pass blocking and run blocking. Florida is the current favorite for the Tampa native, and he is also considering Notre Dame along with the Tide.
1) CB Patrick Surtain Jr. – 10 percent chance to sign
Alabama has made Surtain, the top cornerback and No. 6 overall prospect in the class, their top priority prior to Feb. 7, and it is believed that they have made up some ground on frontrunner LSU during his official visit. That being said, the Tigers are still the heavy favorite for him. Surtain has great technique, tremendous speed, and can shut down an entire side of the field with his tackling ability.
