Nick Saban picked up a second commitment from a running back for the 2012 class over the weekend when Atlanta’s Justin Taylor gave his non-binding word to the Tide over the weekend. (Read more about that here from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
It makes you wonder if it will make a difference to the younger Barry Sanders (not a Jr.) who visited Alabama over the weekend. Here’s a look at the potential stable of running backs that the Tide could be working with in 2012.
