Nick Saban ‘s football camp is one of the best attended nationally, in both numbers and talent.

This year appears to be no different as tons of high ranking recruits flooded Tuscaloosa for the first session. Alabama had offered a couple of guys earlier this week and they prove that Tuesday was going to be even better. The first guy to announce that Alabama had offer him was 2018 LSU commit, Nadab Joseph through a tweet that he made on Tuesday.

He went to work at camp and showed why he is among the nation’s elite. It did not take long for the Tide to recognize that this guy will be a huge additions to their 2018 class. He is currently a four-star prospect per ESPN and 247 Sports. Joseph is one of those guys with a bit of a smaller frame at 6’1” and 180 pounds.

Don’t let his size fool you; he can punish opponent with brutalizing hits. He is one of those aggressive secondary players that do not mind laying receivers out. If he could fill out his frames some more he can be a great player.

Secondary players that do not mind coming down to make a tackle are a huge weapon.

Joseph comes down and serve as another player that is able to play inside of the box with ruthless aggression. He is also a very good safety who is able to read the quarterback’s eyes and jump on the ball to deflect or intercept it.

Joseph is a product of Champagnat Catholic – Hialeah High School in Miami, Fla. SEC schools Florida, Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and South Carolina have already offered Joseph. It is going to be pretty interesting to see if Alabama can get him to decomitt from LSU.


Fabian Lovett, a defensive end in the 2018 class, was the second to announce via Twitter that he received an offer from Alabama. Lovett is a three-star recruit according to ESPN and 247 Sports. ESPN has him listed as the 11th-best player in the state of Mississippi. The 6’4″ 260-pounder strives to control the line of scrimmage. He makes sure that his presence is felt  on every play, whether that is pressuring the quarterback or stopping outside runs.

A place where Fabian can improve is his footwork. On the field, it seems he is a couple steps slower than he should be. It is nothing a few months under Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran can’t change.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State have already offered him.



Quashon Fuller, a Florida Sate commit, was the third guy on Tuesday to announced that he also received an offer from Alabama.

Fuller is a part of the 2019 recruiting class. He is a big guy at 6’3″ and 240 pounds.

Football players are taught at an early age that they should breakdown before they attempt to make any tackle. Breaking down makes it difficult for offensive player to use their elusive speed moves against you. Fuller is one if those guys who does it very well. He reads the offensive players hip region and go in for the attack.

He is still young and will improve over the next season. It is not hard to predict that he will receive more offers. Tennessee and Florida also offered Fuller on Tuesday. Prior to Tuesday, Kentucky was the only other SEC schools to offer Fuller. It is going to be interesting to see if Florida State can hold on to their in-state verbal in Fuller with Alabama jumping at the opportunity to grab him away.
