It appears that the Alabama run of having the top recruiting class in the country won't get to reach a decade with this class.

Surtain's signing with Alabama will likely keep LSU's Class of 2018 out of the top 10 as it also lost No. 13 ranked cornerback Mario Goodrich (6-2, 180) of Lee's Summit West High in Lee's Summit, Missouri, to Clemson on Wednesday morning.

"Well his dad was a great player and was actually on the (Miami) Dolphins team when I took the job there", Saban said.

"I think that we'll probably have a quarterback join us in some kind of way between now and then, which I don't think I can comment about", Saban said. "But overall, I think we solved a lot of needs in this class". I think in every recruiting class, there's always a guy that you get that you thought you might not get, and there's also a guy that you thought you might get that you didn't get.

Cornerback Eddie Smith commited to Alabama on Wednesday in front of Salmen High School in Louisiana. "We feel really good about the two guys that we got".

Among Georgia's top-rated class were a handful of prospects Smart was able to pry away from his former employer, including five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell of Plantation, Florida - a high school teammate of Surtain Jr. - and former Tide-committed linebacker Quay Walker, who flipped to the Bulldogs on Signing Day.

Twelve players in the ESPN300: Eyabi Anoma, Jalyn Armour-Davis, Christian Barmore, Tommy Brown, Jordan Davis, Emil Ekiyor Jr., Josh Jobe, Cameron Latu, Patrick Surtain Jr., Jaylen Waddle, Xavier Williams, Stephon Wynn Jr.

As listed by position, the Crimson Tide added to its roster two defensive backs, one linebacker, one tight end and one wide receiver today.

The last time the Crimson Tide didn't finish with the top-ranked class, they were fourth in 2010; the worst finish under Saban came in his first year in Tuscaloosa (2007, No. 12). "In some cases maybe it had an effect, but in other cases I don't think it did".

"The real evaluation of any recruiting class - and I said this when we had No. 1 recruiting classes and I'm saying it now - is really down the road in two or three years, how many of these guys turn out to be really, really good players", Saban said.
