The University of Alabama propelled itself up the recruiting rankings over the past month by landing 10 players since April began, and the Tide has a great chance of putting a stranglehold on the top spot for 2019.

This week alone, Nick Saban and his staff have pulled in defensive linemen Kevin Harris and DJ Dale to increase the commitment total to 12 for next year's class. These last two commitments allowed the Tide to leapfrog Oklahoma for the No. 1 class in the country according to 247Sports' composite rankings.

What are the chances that Bama can maintain that ranking through National Signing Day next February? Pretty strong according to Hank South of BamaOnline.com. He feels like Saban's current list of commitments paired with the other guys he's high on will make it difficult to another school to overtake them.

As he pointed out during his conversation with Martin Houston on 'The Blitz', Alabama's class already has over 235 points in the 247Sports ranking system. Compare that to the most recent 2018 Alabama class that finished with 20 total signees but just 50 points more.
