The U.S. men’s basketball team’s recruitment has been the subject of scrutiny for the past several weeks, as the Tide has come under fire for its recruiting practices, including a controversial tweet in which it implied that U.K. student-athlete Samir Alharbi had been accepted by the program.
Alabama was one of five schools to decline the recruitment of Alharabi, who was an ESPN2 personality in his native England.
But the recruiting process itself has come in for much more scrutiny.
And the controversy surrounding the recruiting practices has left many Alabama fans in a position of uncertainty.
According to a report from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Alabama has made several changes to its recruiting program this offseason, including replacing the program’s head coach, Billy Kennedy, with former Arkansas and Miami coach Avery Johnson.
But what about the recruits?
What are the chances that Alabama will be recruiting the right recruits to compete at the next level?
And can the program still attract the top talent in the country to the program?
Here’s our look at the state of the Alabama recruiting process and the potential of the Tide to land the next big stars.
Where is the recruiting going?
When Alabama hired Billy Kennedy to take over as the program was trying to lure a marquee player in the class of 2019, the recruiting was supposed to be a major priority for the program, but things took a turn for the worse in February.
According the 247Sports Composite rankings, Alabama was No. 6 in recruiting this year.
But, the school had no official signees in the top 15 and ranked at the bottom of the class in all but one of the rankings.
In March, Johnson announced he would not be returning to Alabama and that he would take a pay cut to be the head coach.
While many believe the decision to cut ties with Johnson was due to recruiting, the reality is that Alabama is not exactly rebuilding.
In fact, the Alabama coaching staff is not even remotely close to being able to compete with the recruiting ranks of other programs.
There are a number of factors that could cause a program to stumble in recruiting.
For starters, the Tide is one of only three programs in the nation that is considered to be ranked in the Top 25 of recruiting in 2018.
That puts it in a tier that is not only ranked among the elite programs in terms of recruiting, but also has a reputation as a high-potential recruiting destination.
This is due to the fact that the Crimson Tide has historically done well in the state, with the majority of its top recruits coming from the state.
That makes recruiting a key priority for Alabama, especially since the Crimson Bluff has historically produced some of the best high school basketball talent in America.
In 2019, Alabama had a total of 21 recruits in the 247Composite, and in the past two years, the Crimson Crimson Tide ranked No. 3 in the recruiting rankings.
So, while it may be easy to believe that recruiting is a big part of the problem with Alabama, it really is not.
The Tide has also been a leader in the development of its recruits.
While the Crimson Sun and Blue are known for being very conservative in recruiting, Alabama is considered a major leader in producing talent, and that is due in large part to the work of head coach Kennedy and his staff.
A large portion of Alabama’s recruiting effort is centered around developing the future stars of the program in the hopes that they will be able to grow into the next generation of college basketball players.
Alabama is also known for developing some of its prospects through their academics.
Kennedy is a former head coach at Florida and was a member of the 2000 U.N.B.A. and the 2003 U.C.B.-C.A.’s World Championships team.
And since the 2016-17 recruiting class was ranked as the best in the history of college sports, it is not a surprise that recruiting has become a priority for Johnson.
Johnson has had the resources to make the process of recruiting a little easier and has made it a priority.
His approach to recruiting has been to focus on developing the best players at each of the three different levels of the recruiting system: Class 1 (high school, college, and junior college), Class 2 (junior college, college and high school), and Class 3 (high and junior school).
This means that Alabama has a number to choose from, from players from the upper classes to players who are in their first year of college.
The three classes have different standards for who can be recruited, but it is important to remember that there is a level of maturity in each of these levels that Alabama can develop the best of the top prospects.
There is no single, perfect formula to recruit in each class, and Alabama has had success recruiting players from both the upper and lower classes.
It is a process that can take some time, but Alabama is always looking to build a pipeline of
