Alabama is a massive 30-point favorite over SEC West foe Ole Miss this weekend. The drama on the field should be short lived. But off the field, Alabama will be doing some serious work in its attempt to flip one of Virginia Tech's top recruits: Holland Fisher.
Out of Midlothian (Va.) Manchester High, Fisher is one of the top safety recruits in the country. He is a consensus four-star recruit. And despite his commitment to Virginia Tech, Fisher has not stopped receiving calls from coaches trying to flip him.
This weekend, he makes the trip to Tuscaloosa. With Nick Saban's history of producing elite defensive backs, and the chance to play in the SEC, Virginia Tech's fans and coaching staff probably aren't too comfortable this weekend. Tech does have a geography and a history of producing top defensive backs on its side, however.
