There are several ways of attacking the news that came out of the announcement made less than an hour ago. The last posting was done on my phone so there wasn’t much time or ability to write much more. Here are the bullet points.
- Mark Ingram, Julio Jones and Marcell Dareus are heading to the NFL.
- Dont’a Hightower is sticking around for at least one more year. He has two seasons of eligibility left after receiving a medical redshirt in 2009.
- Nick Saban referenced it and some of the players did to. This might not be over. Saban said there were still juniors weighing options. Hightower said Mark Barron is still making up his mind.
- The player who left who struggled the most with his decision was Jones. He said the decision wasn’t made until last night.
- Ingram said he told Saban his decision on Monday.
- Dareus said he made up his mind a few weeks ago.
