Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley.
Good recruiting is definitely a strong part of Alabama's success under head football coach Nick Saban. One of the underlooked cornerstones of that success is how Saban's success in recruiting in the coastal area of the state, which includes Mobile. Saban recently spoke on subject.
Saban says: "There are a lot of guys on our team that have made a very
positive contribution that are from this area. There is good high school
football here. There's great coaches. We really have a strong presence
here of alumni people. Football is important to them, and their
community is important to them. And they support football in this area. I
think some of those things have been helpful in us getting some of the
players to come to Alabama."
Past and present Alabama players from the costal area include C.J. Mosley, D.J. Fluker, and current Atlanta Falcon Julio Jones.
