Multiple coaches on the Alabama football staff have spent the last few days on the road evaluating and extending new offers to top recruits.
Here is a quick look at the prospects who have recently pulled in offers from Alabama.
Semaj Bridgeman – 4-Star LB (2023)

His offer came from Bill O’Brien.
Jayvon Thomas – 4-Star DB (2023)
