2012 Alabama Football Recruiting: Four Tide Commits on Rivals250 Watch List

The college football recruiting season is year-round, with schools simultaneously working on the current class and putting on the charm for players from the class that's on deck.

Now primary attention has shifted to the class of 2012, and various recruiting outlets have released their “watch lists” of players to keep an eye on for the upcoming year.

On February 9, Rivals.com unveiled its rankings of 250 of the top prospects in the country.

The Alabama Crimson Tide already have verbal commitments from four of the players and Rivals will be watching as spring and summer all-star camps kick off and eventually give way to the high school season.

Justin Thomas of Prattville High School in Prattville, Alabama is listed by Rivals as a quarterback, but the 5’11”, 175-pound speedster will undoubtedly make the move to either wide receiver or cornerback once he gets to the Capstone.

Dakota Ball will be one of the top defensive tackles in the nation once these “watch lists” are replaced by definitive rankings. Alabama plucked the 6’2”, 285-pounder out of Pepperell High School in Lindale, Georgia.

Reggie Ragland of Bob Jones High School in Madison, Alabama already has college linebacker size at 6’4”, 245 pounds. In fact, Ragland could be moved to defensive end at the next level. He will rank as one of the top high school prospects at the linebacker position.

Finally, 6’4”, 197-pound Eddie Williams of Arnold High School in Panama City, Florida is an impressive physical specimen for the safety position. He’ll have offers from colleges all over the nation as one of his position’s elite.

Several others on the Rivals250 Watch List could ultimately sign with the Crimson Tide, including prospects Kwon Alexander, a linebacker at Oxford High School in Oxford, Alabama, and Jameis Winston, a quarterback at Hueytown High School in Hueytown, Alabama.

Alexander might eventually be regarded as the top-rated linebacker in the entire country, while Winston might end up as the nation’s finest signal-caller.

Eight players represent the state of Alabama on Rivals.com's list.
