Alabama once again sits on top of the recruiting world. The Tide have the consensus number 1 class again for the 2015 cycle with 20 commitments already. Who will make up the last few spots for the 2015 class? Will the Tide be able to flip someone again like they seem to always do? Here are the Top 10 Most Wanted Targets for 2015:
1. Daron Payne – DT – Shades Valley (AL) 6’3″ 344
Daron Payne stays at the top of the list. The huge defensive tackle from right in Bama’s backyard is an absolute must-get for the Tide. He has unbelieveable speed for his size and could be an immediate impact player on the defensive line. It is an in-state race between Alabama and Auburn that should come down to Signing Day. I give the edge to the Tide right now.
2. CeCe Jefferson – DT – Baker CO (FL) 6’2″ 244
CeCe Jefferson remains at the second spot, even if Florida is the heavy favorite to land his services. The pass rusher is more than likely going to stay at home, but never count out Alabama and their ability to close on recruits. His talent alone keeps him at number 2. He has All-American all over him.
3. Terry Godwin – ATH – Callaway (GA) 6’0″ 168 (GEORGIA COMMIT)
Terry Godwin shoots all the way up to third on this month’s list. The number 1 rated athlete in the country has been committed to the Bulldogs since January. However, Godwin has taken three visits to Alabama since April and Saban is persuing him hard. Godwin could be a game-changing receiver and special teams player at the collegiate level. Don’t be surprised if Godwin flips to the Tide by Signing Day.
4. Jovon Robinson – RB – Georgia Military (JUCO) – 5’11″ 220 (AUBURN COMMIT)
The recruitment of Jovon Robinson was been an experience to say the least. The once Auburn commit – turned JUCO transfer – turned back to Auburn commit is the top JUCO player in the nation for 2015. Robinson is committed to the Tigers again, but his recruitment is still very much open. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to the recruitment of Robinson. Could he be next big time player to spurn Auburn for the Crimson Tide?
5. Josh McMillon – LB – Whitehaven (TN) 6’3″ 239
McMillon is one of the top linebackers in the south for the 2015 cycle. He fits the mold of the style of LB Saban likes to have with great size and good speed. McMillon would likely be used at the Will or Mike LB position if he comes to the Capstone. His commitment will come down to the Tide and Ole Miss.
6. Kendall Sheffield – DB – Fort Bend Marshall (TX) 5’11″ 180
PREDICTION: TEXAS A&M
7. Malik Jefferson – LB – Poteet (TX) 6’2.5″ 215
PREDICTION: TEXAS A&M
8. Drew Richmond – OT – Memphis University School (TN) 6’5″ 301
9. Leo Lewis – LB – Brookhaven (MS) 6’3″ 225
PREDICTION: MISSISSIPPI STATE
10. Damien Harris – RB – Madison Southern (KY) 5’11″ 205
PREDICTION: OHIO STATE
