TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- On Monday, Alabama fans learned that Mario Cristobal will be their new offensive line coach. The hire should help the Crimson Tide’s chances with ESPN Watch List wide receiver Jake McCrary (Miami/Coral Reef), who knew Cristobal from his days as head coach at Florida International and more recently from his stint at Miami.

“Coach Cristobal, he’s a great coach,” McCrary said. “He was over at FIU and turned that program around. He was at Miami for a short time. That’s when I really started to know him a little better.

“A better offer came on the table, and he took the best job that was for him, the Alabama job. I’m happy for him, and I think that will help Alabama a lot more because he’s a local guy, and he could get the local kids up there to Alabama.”

The 2014 class has a number of talented recruits from Miami and the surrounding areas.
