    6'3" 300 lbs Committed to Bama but talk is LSU may indeed pick him up as Nick is "processing" him out of the class.

    Credit to CS for this find.

    "A new name to watch out for is Wilkinson County High School defensive tackle Johnny Dwight. The 6-3, 300-pound Alabama commitment from Rochelle, Georgia has been a target of LSU's for some time, but things cooled off once he committed to the Crimson Tide. Well, the door may be opening again as we have learned that he has been reaching out to LSU's staffers regularly as his contact with Alabama dwindles. From what we have gathered, he hasn't set up an official visit to LSU, yet, but it's very likely that it will transpire soon. Multiple sources in Georgia feel that LSU will land Dwight, which would be somewhat of a shock to most fans because his name has been rarely mentioned in regards to LSU. From all the info I have gathered, expect him to be in the LSU class if everything works out as planned."

    Bama insiders are saying contact has not stopped and they are sending someone to visit him shortly.

    Old Nicky not paying enough attention to his "non elite" 3 star recruit. Now trying to reel him back in. Funny stuff.

    It won't be shocking if he flips. FSU and NC are two that are in contact with him as well.

    A lot of this centers around the initial offers limitations and a DT out of KY that hasn't committed to anyone yet; Matt Elam.

    Dwight has potential. He reminds me of Marcel Dareus; not only in skill but how quickly he'd be able to contribute in Tuscaloosa. If he didn't shirt his frosh year I'd suspect he'd be seeing playing time his sophomore year and making plays as a Jr.

    He says his recruitment is over now after the visit from Smart.
