Recruits will be watching: Tide-Vols

10/25/2013

Though Alabama will have several top visitors in attendance for its game against LSU on Nov. 9, there are still plenty of recruiting storylines to follow when the Crimson Tide host long-time rival Tennessee this weekend.

Both teams have top-five recruiting classes, and the game will draw plenty of recruits from all over the Southeast. Here's a closer look at which recruits will be focused on this game Saturday.

DE Da'Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge): The No. 4-ranked player in the country will be in Tuscaloosa for his second of three official visits. It appears that Michigan has the advantage for this five-star prospect, but Nick Saban is one of the best recruiters in the country, and Bama will pull out all the stops to impress Hand and his family. Hand is also planning to visit Florida in early November before making a decision on Nov. 14. This visit will go a long way in determining where the No. 1-ranked defensive end will play college football next season.
