After dominating the NCAA’s new recruiting battleground during December’s Early Signing Period, the Alabama Crimson Tide were on pace to emerge with the nation’s top recruiting class in college football for 2019. Georgia, Florida, LSU or Tennessee couldn’t keep pace in the SEC, defending champion Clemson fell way short, and this batch of recruits joining Nick Saban’s team is already considered one of the best classes in college football history.

Since 247Sports began their recruiting rankings, this 2019 recruiting haul for the Alabama football program is the highest-rated class in Crimson Tide history, and it is the second-highest ever being Ohio State’s 2017 class. With National Signing Day behind us, let’s meet the newest members of the Alabama Crimson Tide who will be heading to Tuscaloosa next season.
