Much like the national championship game, Alabama needed a strong finish on National Signing Day in order to continue its streak of top five recruiting classes. It is safe to say that the Tide did in fact finish in style.

Only time will tell in regards to how good this class will be in comparison to past Saban classes. However, there is reason to believe that the pieces are there to be one of the best of the Saban era.
