    Alabama football recruiting update, as the Crimson Tide continue to add to the 2017 class.


    You can run from Alabama, but you surely can’t hide.

    Nick Saban is one of the best recruiters in the country, and there’s no way he’s going to sit by and be outdone on the recruiting trail.

    A couple weeks after losing three commits in two days, Alabama is still ranked in the top five of the 2017 class rankings. And even though the Tide have not added any new commits, Saban did make some moves by offering scholarships and realigning his coaching staff

    After extending an offer to 4-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey, from Corona, Calif., Saban named his long-time assistant, Burton Burns, as the new special teams coach.

    As the Tide’s annual A-Day approaches on April 16, let us take a look at how the Alabama’s 2017 recruiting class currently sits.

    Note: Scout rankings and ratings used in this article.
