Alabama hasn’t pieced together its 2018 recruiting class yet, but Nick Saban is already working on recruiting top prospects for the Class of 2019.

The Crimson Tide hosted No. 1 offensive tackle Devontae Dobbs for the second time since March, and the Belleville, Michigan prospect told BamaOnLine he was pleased with how the visit went on Sunday.

“It was smooth,” Dobbs said.

“They love my upside, and they would like to mold me into a better player.”

Dobbs plans to visit again to check out the facilities and the campus. He participated in camps during his first two visits to Tuscaloosa.

The five-star lineman said Alabama will be on his list “for sure.” Alabama also offered his teammate, four-star cornerback Julian Barnett, on Sunday. The two could be a package deal for the Tide.

Dobbs is the No. 1 player from the state of Michigan and the No. 17 overall player in his class, according to 247Sports.

Michigan is the favorite to land Dobbs, but Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson will also be in the mix for the 6’4, 270-pound prospect.
