    Dixie Kid: Havili and the RB at Cal prove you wrong. I wish Bateman had stayed in State but I hope he tears it up at Bama.

    Good luck to Bateman, but Cottonwood players are notorious for going out of state and then being stuck at the bottom of the depth chart their whole career.

    From this article Brandon Huffman is a social media analyst. Has he played or coached college football? If not, why is Gurney going to him? What does he know? Bateman is a 5 star according to whom? How many games did he lead his team to a win last year? Kid performs well, except when he is up against 11 other players..this is why scholarships are only good for 1 year. Hope he gets a multi year opportunity.

    Huge Alabama fan here. I really hope this Bateman kid is for real. I have big doubts though. In Utah he does not see nearly the speed at defensive back he will see in the SEC. Many Utah HS QB's have tried but I struggle thinking of one that has gone out of state and been any kind of success. I did watch this kid play a couple of games versus Bingham last year and he has a strong arm but not anywhere near the speed and decision making skills needed in the SEC. Fortunately, Alabama will have several 3-5 start QB's if he is another Utah bust. He will also have a couple years to mature and grow. I do wish him luck.

    Good luck to each of these young men on their future prospects.

    I feel sorry for Alabama...we know that you can't win with five star recruits.
