Last week, a video leaked on social media that has everyone talking.

Nick Saban is a seven-time national champion who enjoys recruiting the best athletes for the University of Alabama football program. With each recruit, he breaks down the tactics of the recruiting game and explains why the Crimson Tide is the best program for it. One recruit decided to record Saban’s message via Zoom and shared it on Twitter.

Upon seeing the clip, which is two minutes and 20 seconds (2:20) long, multiple former players were upset with the individual exposing Saban’s gems. The group of Cam Robinson, Tim Williams, Henry Ruggs III, Jared Mayden, Dallas Warmack, and Eddie Smith was bothered by it. All six players won at least one national championship and Saban placed four on NFL rosters.

It is unknown as to whether the young man will be offered a football scholarship to Alabama.

For now, former standouts see this as being disrespectful and someone trying to take advantage of Saban.
