Even bearing in mind that recruiting rankings are only opinions by so-called recruiting gurus, Saban & Co. are putting together an unprecedented WR class this year. I thought last year was as good as it gets. We got Amp Hill, Craig Davis and Dwayne Bowe, who were ranked as the #8, 12, and 21 WR's on Rivals last year. All of them appear to be as talented as expected. Now look at the rankings for Doucet and Carter: Rivals--Doucet #1 WR, #3 overall; Carter #5 WR, #22 overall Insiders--Doucet #1 WR, #9 overall; Carter #3 WR, #14 overall Lemming--Doucet #2 WR, #9 overall; Carter #1 WR, #6 overall Simply incredible (and we get Carter even though his position coach leaves for the NFL). Randall, Flynn and Russell have to be drooling over their targets for next year (not to mention that Jones at TE and JV and Addai at RB are also pass-catching threats). As if Doucet and Carter were not enough, we are still in the hunt (said to be between Miami and LSU) for Lavelle Hawkins. He is ranked as the #4 athlete by Rivals, and as the #9 WR by Lemming and #17 WR by Insiders, and is overall ranked #73 by Rivals, #80 by Lemming, and #95 by Insiders. I don't think Nick will have too much difficulty attracting some interest in the opening left by Stan Hixon. Be sure to fill up the paper tray in the fax machine.
