Some kids that have early interest according to 247, like E said though it doesn't mean a whole lot this early:

4* Dual Threat QB Robby Ashford from Hoover, AL

4* Running Back Daijun Edwards from Moultrie, GA

4* Running Back Roydell Williams from Hueytown, AL

3* Wide Receiver Eddie Williams from Phenix City, AL

4* Offensive Tackle Tate Ratledge from Rome, GA

4* Offensive Tackle Bryn Tucker from Knoxville, TN

5* Strong-Side Defensive End Myles Murphy from Powder Springs, GA

4* Strong-Side Defensive End Andy Boykin from Lagrange, GA (committed and uncommitted from us already but might still be in the fold)

3* Defensive Tackle Eric Taylor from Trussville, AL

4* Outside Linebacker Cameron Riley from Evergreen, AL

4* Athlete Enzo Jennings from Oak Park, MI

  

Out of these, I really like Ashford and Roydell Williams. Eddie Williams is also rather underrated and would be a good steal in this class.

He's a stud.  

Also the Taylor kid from HT has a lot of developing to do.  Has good size but doesn't appear very strong for his size he still has 2 years though so maybe he can develop.  Definitely big and athletic enough to keep an eye on him.

Oh yeah, sure when corchjay says Tank Bigsby everybody chimes in but when I said it a couple weeks ago, crickets! J/k Glad corch is keeping track of this kid.

There is a 9th grader at Valley High to keep an eye on. B. J. Baker is running all over teams so far this year. @corchjay I havent seen him play but he seems like a good one from what I'm hearing.

With due respect, when you posted about Tank there wasn't any AU buzz with him in terms of publicly reported. There is now. Lol

I hope AU hammers down hard on Tank, especially since UGA & Dell McGee hasn't made a push yet. I want to get a big of a lead on them as possible before they potentially come calling.

I had never heard of him until Opelika played Callaway and he was running all over a team that usually has a pretty good defense.

This would be Eddie Williams from Central High School. It's a VIP article but it was pretty easy to find the 2020 wide receiver from central high school on our offer list. Stated before that he's extremely underrated and would be a steal before other teams really catch on to how good he is. Clemson lead according to Crystal Balls (CB) but it's very early and always nice when momma is impressed.

Quite honestly, there's no reason we should *ever* beat Clemson straight up for a WR.

We actually lead big for EW. Yet another time crystal balls are meaningless.

I would think we would need balls of steel instead of crystal balls. Just an observation.
