Alabama has built one of the greatest dynasties in sports under head coach Nick Saban. The Crimson Tide have dominated every aspect of the sport, including the recruiting game.
Sure, there were other top-rated recruits prior to the Saban era, but recruiting has gone to a new level since 2007. That got us thinking: Who should go on the Mount Rushmore of all-time Alabama recruits?
Ratings coming out of high school certainly factored into our list, but, in some instances, we pushed the selection process beyond that. The importance of certain players in certain recruiting classes changed the game for Alabama, and we took that into consideration.
So without further ado, we bring you a total of eight former high school football recruits. The first four players came up just short as honorable mention selections, while the fab four made our Mount Rushmore.
