Bold predictions: Class of 2014
From players to programs, 10 bold predictions for signing day
Down the stretch we come. Signing day for the Class of 2014 is fewer than 100 days away, and the marathon is turning into a sprint. Teams are jockeying to get into position for the critical December and January official visit period, and by the end of November, coaches will be flocking to the homes of prospects all over the country for visits. You never know what might happen, but here are 10 bold predictions for what we'll see on national signing day.
Leonard Fournette signs with Alabama
The Crimson Tide are assembling the best offensive line class in ages, and that foundation is the key thing that helps win over Fournette, the nation's No. 1 player, in the end. This certainly is an against-the-grain projection because LSU has been the team to beat with Fournette for quite some time, but he also understands that his decision is a business one and he has to do what's best for him in the long term. Having seven of the most highly rated offensive linemen in front of him, including No. 1 tackle Cameron Robinson, No. 1 guard Ross Pierschbacher and No. 1 center Josh Casher will eventually help win the battle for Alabama. Also, never underestimate the recruiting power of Nick Saban.
