As Alabama prepares for its fourth straight National Championship appearance, January could be a huge month for the Tide on the field and the recruiting trail.
Four of the Tide’s 2019 targets will make their decision in January ahead of the February signing period. 4-Star defensive end, Khris Bogle, and 4-Star defensive back, Marcus Banks, will make their decisions on Jan. 5 live on NBC at the U.S. All-American Game. 4-Star running back, Deondrick Glass, will announce his decision on Jan.14 live on ESPN and 4-Star defensive back, Noa Pola-Gates, will make his verbal commitment on Jan. 19 live on the CBS Sports Network.
Bogle’s decision will come down to the Tide, Tennessee, Florida and Miami. He is a lean defensive end with some great speed.
Banks is a slim lengthy defensive back, who prides himself on going stride to stride with wideouts and making plays on the ball. The Tide had three defensive backs to sign during the early signing period.
Glass will make his decision between the Tide, Oklahoma State, Georgia, Miami , Michigan, Texas. He is a strong runner with great vision, who racked up 30 russhing touchdowns during his senior season. The Tide has one 2019 runnung back signee in Trey Sanders and one verbal commit in Keilan Robinson.
Pola-Gates is an agressive defensive back, who has no problem coming down hill and laying the wood. He has expressed to yours truly constantly that the Tide still remains as his favorite.
