With the release of the ESPN 150 today, here are some of Alabama's top targets on the list:

1. RB Leonard Fournette (New Orleans/St. Augustine)

6-foot-1, 232 pounds

ESPN 150 Rank: 1

Why they want him: Think Trent Richardson. Fournette might have the best combination of size and speed since Richardson came out in 2009. He’s a perfect fit for Alabama’s pro-style offense and has a chance to be the next great running back for the Crimson Tide. Alabama has a ridiculous number of young backs set to be on campus, but Fournette has the talent to play right away.

Who else wants him: Fournette says he had more than 100 offers as a freshman. The biggest threat to Alabama is clearly the in-state school, LSU, but also keep an eye on Texas. The Longhorns just landed a commitment from Fournette's teammate, Jermaine Roberts.

Odds they get him: 60 percent
