Saban On Georgia Recruiting Success

Posted by | May 7, 2012 | -

By Michael Carvell, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Why does Nick Saban think Alabama has success in recruiting the state of Georgia? This past season, Alabama won a mythical national championship in the Rivals’ team recruiting rankings with a stellar class that included eight of Georgia’s top prospects. Why the success? It’s almost like Saban lives in Georgia, a reporter suggested. “Well, I still have a home in Georgia,” Saban quickly replied at a recent celebrity golf tournament. The coach was referring to this stunning mansion on Lake Burton.

He was joking. But his recruiting in these parts – and across the Southeast – is no joke. The part-time Georgian explained his recruiting success within the state: “I think we work hard in recruiting and try to have a good program,” Saban said. “We try to help the kids in our program be successful personally, academically, and athletically. There are a lot of good football players over here in Georgia. “We want to do a good job in a five-hour radius of Tuscaloosa. Atlanta is the great city with the great population, and has a lot of football players in it. There’s good high school football in this state and good academics, too. It has worked out well for us.” [More]
