Over the course of the college football season, no guest appeared more regularly on the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast than ESPN TideNation.com’s Alex Scarborough. And with Signing Day just around the corner, Alex made a return appearance on the show earlier this week to discuss all the major recruiting story lines in Tuscaloosa heading into the big day.

Topics included: - What goes into Nick Saban’s recruiting philosophy? Sure the school signs a lot of top players, but a lot more goes into evaluation than just strictly talent. Alex explains what the Crimson Tide look for in a potential prospect, including measurables and mental make-up. - How much longer can Nick Saban keep recruiting at this pace? We know Saban loves the X’s and O’s, but how much does he really enjoy recruiting? Also, how much do his assistants take during the recruiting process? - Who are some of the committed players in Alabama’s class who can step in and make a difference right away? Alex likes tight end/H-Back O.J. Howard, but also wonders whether star running back Derrick Henry will end up on the defensive side of the ball. - Alex breaks down the remaining top targets, including defensive linemen Dee Liner and Montravious Adams, as well as linebacker Rueben Foster. - Finally, Alex gives the listener a couple of other story lines to watch out for heading into Signing Day.
