TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama’s 49-0 drubbing of Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Saturday was the last domino to fall before Gene Chizik was fired as head coach of the Tigers. Now the Crimson Tide are looking to poach some of AU’s top recruits.

Over the weekend, Alabama hosted a number of Auburn commitments including defensive tackle Dee Liner, the state’s top-ranked player, ESPN 300 wide receiver Earnest Robinson and four-star athlete Jason Smith.

“It was fun,” Smith said of his visit. “I came in for the game with my parents. The atmosphere was crazy. Whenever you come to a big rivalry game like that, it’s going to be packed out, and the excitement of that game is crazy. It was great. I liked it.”
