Alabama Signing Day Storylines: On the hunt for a DL

Alabama Signing Day Storylines: On the hunt for a DL

Hyped by on January 26, 2012 Website:

The one piece of solid information that everyone seems to agree on as we reach the end of Bama’s 2012 recruiting cycle is that the coaching staff wants to take one more defensive lineman. Tops on the Tide’s list, and just about everyone else’s for that matter, is Eddie Goldman (CFBZ #9) out of Washington (DC). His size and athleticism give him the ability to hold the point of attack in a base 3-4 look, as well as to be a disruptive force getting after the quarterback in passing situations, not unlike a Marcell Dareus. His recruitment has mainly been a two-team race for a while now, between Bama and Florida State. Most felt the Tide was in good position to land him heading into the home stretch, but their hopes suffered a big blow when Goldman’s lead recruiter, Sal Sunseri, left to take the defensive coordinator job at Tennessee. Now the consensus seems to be that Bama is a longshot to nab the big guy.

(Sidenote: Watch out for Auburn in Goldman’s recruitment.......
