Per 24/7 Sports, Alabama's 2013 recruiting class is already ranked No. 1 in the nation. The scary thing is that it can get even better.

There are still at least three blue chip recruits that list Bama as a possibility who are still uncommitted. If any number of these prospects choose Bama, an already great recruiting class will get even better.

Here are the aforementioned players still within Bama's grasp.


DT Montravius Adams, 6'4", 310 pounds

One of the biggest reasons Alabama is one of the most dominant football programs in the country is the play on the line of scrimmage.

Adams would certainly help continue the tradition of premier defensive tackles in Tuscaloosa. This beastly young man from Vienna, Ga. is listed as the No. 2-ranked prep player in the country, and No. 1 among DTs, per 24/7 Sports.

He is scheduled to visit Bama on January 18, and the Tide appears to be in a race with Georgia, Clemson, Florida and Auburn to sign Adams to a letter of intent. 

Adams didn't appear to give any school a decided edge in a recent article from (ESPN Insider account).

It may seem like Georgia has an advantage because of geography, but the departure of defensive line coach Rodney Garner could hurt the Bulldogs' chances.

I imagine Bama would have some increased leverage with Adams and all prospects if they can show recruits their most recent BCS championship trophy.

They could be only 11 days removed from their most recent coronation when Adams arrives for his visit.

Stay tuned.


OT Laremy Tunsil, 6'6", 295 pounds

We talked about a beast on the defensive line, but Bama is known for their ability to run the ball and protect the quarterback as well. 

Tunsil can presumably handle both duties.

He is the No. 1-rated OT in the country and No. 4-rated prospect overall. He hails from Lake City, Fla., but he is currently said to be "warmer" on Georgia and Alabama, per 24/7 Sports. Florida State is apparently just behind the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide.

His official visit is set for January 11 to Tuscaloosa.


S/CB/ATH Tony Conner, 6'1", 205 pounds

Conner has the ability to play any position in the secondary, or even on offense as a RB or WR. No matter where he plays, he has tremendous upside.

His aggressive instincts seem to fit best as a safety, but his athletic ability screams versatility. He is considered the top-rated safety prospect and No. 8 prospect overall by 24/7 Sports.

Right now it appears Ole Miss may hold a bit of home-field advantage with the Batesville, Miss. native. He is thought to be leaning towards the Rebels with Bama trailing.

There are no official visits listed for Conner at this time, so things could definitely change by National Signing Day on February 6.
