The University of Alabama has been clear about taking two quarterbacks in the 2013 class since the beginning, and a new target emerged on Wednesday to pair with current commitment Cooper Bateman when the Crimson Tide offered Mississippi signal-caller Ryan Buchanan.

“I was excited about it. It’s freaking Alabama,” Buchanan said. “I’ve talked to them since last summer, and I’ve been there a couple times, and they’ve always said we’ll offer you once you throw for us at camp. I guess they changed that, and they wanted to officially offer me now before their camp.”

Alabama’s first camp begins on Sunday, and the plan was to wait until then where the quarterbacks could throw in front of head coach Nick Saban before extending an offer. Apparently, that strategy has changed.
