Alabama lands former Auburn commit Quinnen Williams

"They have always been a top choice of mine," Williams told AL.com last week. "I like their tradition and winning ways. They're always in the running to compete for a championship. Their athletic department is second to none and they have a great academic program as far as my major (education) goes. I've developed a great relationship with the coaches -- Coach (Mario) Cristobal, Coach (Bo) Davis and Nick Saban."

Williams was committed to Auburn for more than four months .

"When I committed to Auburn I kind of shut down from everyone to clear my mind and make sure I was doing the right thing," he said.

Alabama commit Khalid Kareem 'can be really disruptive,' Shawne Merriman says

Former NFL Pro Bowl pass rusher Shawne Merriman spent Thursday viewing video of new Alabama commit Khalid Kareem, a four-star defensive end from Michigan who committed to the Tide Wednesday.

"I like him," Merriman told AL.com. "He has good hat and hands. Quick off the ball. His lateral movement on stunts is pretty good. Good pursuit down the line of scrimmage chasing the quarterback. But the biggest question for him is: Can he be that dominant on the next level? You're not going to go unblocked so much like he is in high school. He's not going to just dominate everyone because of his size. But he has every bit of potential to do it. It's there."

OL commit Charles Baldwin has 'burning desire to be great,' coach says

The nation's No. 2 junior college prospect and four-star recruit  Charles Baldwin will be a good one.

"He's a monster in the weight room," Boden said. "I think he's going to be a big-time player. One of his best characteristics is that he has a burning desire to be great. He wants to be great and play at the highest level.
"He studies all day long. He's taking a lot of credits to make sure he's a mid-year kid, so he's doing a great job with that."

"Offensively, we're extremely similar to what Coach Saban and Coach Kiffin run," Boden said. "We're a pro-style, multiple, NFL-type of offensive system, which is what Coach Kiffin runs. Philosophy-wise, I believe in balance the same way Alabama does.

"I think it's a really good fit for Charles. I think he could play in any system, but for what he does as a player, he fits into what they run at Alabama."

Sweet Home Alabama' blaring over Tennessee's practice field?

Instead of "Rocky Top," "Sweet Home Alabama" blared over a loudspeaker. And Jones seemed none too pleased.
