247Sports’ John Garcia Jr. talks Alabama’s 2019 Recruiting Class and Will They Recruit Another QB
Nick Saban has the number one recruiting class in the country with his 2019 commits but could it be one of his best at Alabama and how many more quarterbacks can he add to the team after committing Carson Beck?
Recruiting analyst for 247Sports John Garcia Jr. joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss if the 2019 recruiting class is the best in the Saban era, quarterback Carson Beck committing to Alabama in 2020, could Alabama go back to a pro style offense with the new players they are recruiting.
He also discussed if Alabama would be looking for another quarterback in recruiting and he could weigh on the verbal commitment of Taulia Tagovailoa.
"I think the number is going to be two, they have two right now obviously so they are going to remain on that track with Paul Tyson and Taulia Tagovailoa," Garcia said. "But, there is at least some degree of worry with Tagovailoa. Obviously the likelihood of him departing the class could partial be contingent on his brother."
He would go on to say Taulia is on campus hanging out with his brother more often than any other recruit in the class and it's unlikely he de-commits from the Crimson Tide, but the option is still there if another team like Tennessee and LSU can offer him a guaranteed starting role.
"There is obviously the unknown out there with this quarterback battle, even though we all expect Tua to win it, but it's still technically that unknown," Garcia said. "Other schools are beginning to point to that 'hey you are our guy regardless with what happens at Bama we are only taking one quarterback, and your the guy' so they are focused on that with Taulia and it's mainly Tennessee and LSU."
Alabama has their eyes on quarterback Cornelious Brown out of Calera, AL, who also has offers to Vanderbilt and LSU, but that's if Tagovailoa decides to de-commits in which Garcia doesn't believe he will.
