Alabama football recruiting 2013: Saban tops on and off the field

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

Alabama has been the undisputed number one team all year -- in recruiting as well.

With two straight national titles and a third very possible, it's hard to see the Alabama dynasty coming to an end any time soon. The Tide have been nearly as impressive off the field as on it,  scoring the top-ranked recruiting class every year since 2011.

That looks unlikely to change this year, as the Tide have a star-studded class of 22 commitments ranked No. 1 in the nation, above Tennessee and Ohio State. Alabama has received two recent commitments: four-star outside linebacker Ronnie Clark and four-star center Joshua Casher.

Cameron Robinson is the top player n the Tide's class. The offensive tackle from West Monroe (La.) High School is considered a five-star prospect by the 247sports composite. He is rated as the top player in the country at any position.

Bo Scarbrough is another important player for Alabama. The athlete from IMG Academy (Fla.) is rated as a five-star prospect by the 247sports composite. He is considered the third-best athlete in the country and the fourth-best player in the state.

Christian Miller is another top talent coming into Tuscaloosa. The outside linebacker from Spring Valley (S.C..) High School is considered a four-star player by the 247sports composite. He is rated as the second-best outside linebacker in the country and the best player in the state.

David Cornwell is another key part of Saban's class. The quarterback from Norman North (Okla.) High School is rated as a four-star by the 247sports composite. He is considered the fourth-best pro-style quarterback in the country and the best player in the state.

Ross Pierschbacher is another important commitment for the Tide. The offensive lineman from Cedar Falls (Ia.) High School is considered a four-star by the 247sports composite. He is rated as the fifth-best offensive tackle in the country and the best player in the state.

Alabama is still in on a bunch of top prospects, but perhaps none is more important than five-star cornerback Marlon Humphrey of Hoover (Ala.). The son of former Alabama star Bobby Humphrey, Marlon is a great player who would immediately see significant playing time in Tuscaloosa. And that's a pretty rare thing to say given the insanely stacked nature of Alabama's roster.
