TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban certainly has had his share of talented players during his tenure at Alabama, and although player development is critical to success, it all starts on the recruiting trail.

Saban, considered by many to be the best recruiter in the game right now, knows that as well as anybody. He has always assembled his staff with coaches who know how to recruit and who put an emphasis on bringing the top talent to Tuscaloosa.

With that in mind, TideNation looks back at the top five recruiting victories for Saban and his assistant coaches in the last seven years.
