Recruit Says Saban Told Him Ingram’s Going Pro

Nick Saban is recruiting running back Barry Sanders Jr. to Alabama.  Sanders Jr. told The Oklahoman newspaper yesterday that Bama’s coach is offering playing time as a lure.

“He just said, ‘We need running backs,’” Sanders Jr. said.  “How Trent (Richardson) would be a senior if I were to go (to Alabama).  He told me Ingram’s leaving, he’s making it public probably Friday.”

I’m not sure that this is shocking news to anyone.  Ingram won the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore and then saw his numbers slightly decline this past season.  He missed two early games with an injury.

Saban has said that he wants his players to do a bit more research on the NFL’s labor situation before jumping into the draft early this year, but Ingram provides a good example of just how much labor concerns will impact juniors’ decisions — it wont.

Sanders Jr. is a junior — in school terms, too — and is a top running back in the class of 2012.

Dave Blaikie,

Thanks for reading, but I'm not sure what you're upset about. Perhaps you should contact Nick Saban and explain your point to him... since he's the one talking to Barry Sanders Jr about Alabama needing running backs in 2012. NO ONE at this site said Sanders would be playing DURING Ingram's career. DUH!!!!

The point that EVERYONE seems to be missing.... Ingram will be a senior next year. Sanders will not be coming to school until AFTER Ingram's senior year. Regardless of Ingram's decision this year, he would be in the NFL when Sanders is ready to report to the team.... DUH!!!!!
