Alabama's Top Class Includes Hill and Liner

Muscle Shoals standout Dee Liner announced his pledge to Alabama just minutes before signing his letter of intent.  That commitment bolsters a class that was already among the best in the nation.

Liner was committed to Auburn before former coach Gene Chizik was fired.  The 6'2" 277 lb. defensive lineman is an Under Armour All-American and a valuable piece of Alabama's class.  He has the ability to play at any of three spots in Coach Nick Saban's three-man defensive front.

Liner joins Huntsville High School standout Grant Hill in the 2013 Tide class.  Hill, a 6'6" 300 lb. offensive lineman, was an All-American at Huntsville High where he played tackle.  He will likely play guard for the Tide.

Alabama signed another 300 pounder for the O-line in Leon Brown, a standout from New York. 

Hargrave Military Academy offensive Lineman Brandon Hill weighs in at 350 lbs.

The list really goes on and on for the Tide.  Reuben Foster announced his commitment to Coach Saban's squad Monday night.  The linebacker from Auburn High School was also an All-American.

Tight End OJ Howard from Autauga and defensive end Jonathan Allen are also expected to make an impact.

Around 3 p.m., running back Alvin Kamara was the cherry on top.  The Georgia native has clocked a 4.55 forty.
