Alabama Lands 4-Star JUCO DE Isaiah Buggs
Alabama's 2017 recruiting class continues to make a case for the best ever after adding another four-star recruit on Tuesday.
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College defensive end Isaiah Buggs, originally from Louisiana, chose the Crimson Tide over LSU. The No. 2 JUCO recruit in the nation cited the uncertainty on the Tigers coaching staff as the reason he went ahead and rolled with the Tide.
The addition of Buggs gives Alabama some help along the defensive line with the departure of Bednarik and Nagurski winner Jonathan Allen to graduation. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Buggs finished 2016 with 75 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks.
The Crimson Tide's class of 2017 continues to lead the nation on 247Sports' Composite Rankings and is on pace to be the highest-rated class of all-time.
