ESPN Grades Bama's 2010 Recruiting Class

ESPN recently graded the SEC recruiting class for the 2010-11 season. No surprise, Kentucky came in first place. Hit the link to check it out.

Here is what they said about the Alabama class:

After a season of adjusting to the players who were already in the program, the Crimson Tide staff needed to get players who fit coach Anthony Grant's pressing style. Trevor Releford (Shawnee Mission, Kan./Bishop Miege) is a controlled speed demon who will dictate tempo, while Charles Hankerson (Miami/Coral Reef) will stretch the defense with his perimeter shooting ability. A huge late pickup was 6-8 Jason Carter (Houston/Christian Life), who may be one of the biggest sleepers nationally and should challenge for heavy minutes as a face-up power forward. Junior college transfer Kendall Durant (Washington, D.C./Weatherford) should compete early for minutes at either guard spot.

Interesting and encouraging comments. From the general comments the last few months, you would expect this class to be terrible and rated last in the conference. Good to see things may be better than we thought.
