TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Univeristy of Alabama was well-represented in the various all-star games last week, and if the final ESPN 150 and ESPN 300 rankings for the 2013 class were any indication, the Crimson Tide commitments must have performed well against the nation’s best.

The new rankings, which came out following last week’s all-star games, included nine Alabama commitments in the ESPN 150 and 13 future Tide players in the ESPN 300.

Yulee, Fla., athlete Derrick Henry, who enrolled at Alabama this week, is still the highest-ranked player in the Tide’s class. After setting the national career rushing yards record as a senior, Henry jumped to No. 9 in the latest rankings, and he also earned a fifth star. He is currently the only five-star in Alabama’s class.
