Laremy Tunsil, the top offensive line recruit in the nation, will visit Alabama this weekend, and could commit to the repeat national champions.
Tunsil has a host of offers, but has essentially limited his search to the Crimson Tide and Georgia, with Ole Miss, Florida State, and Texas in the rear view mirror. He takes his official visit to Tuscaloosa this weekend, and will visit Georgia next. However, Alabama has an added weapon in trying to recruit Tunsil: he's friends with Alabama commit Derrick Henry, considered one of the top running backs in the nation, and Henry will be one of those trying to convince him to join Nick Saban's squad this weekend.
Alabama has shown it can produce great offensive linemen, as shown by the three players considered among the best in the nation at their positions who paved the way for an elite run game this year -- seniors Barrett Jones and Chase Warmack and junior D.J. Fluker. However, all three are leaving, so the Tide will need players to fill those holes, like Tunsil, the 6'5, 295-pounder who should be an elite offensive tackle at the college level.
