Alabama will have a good chance of landing Max Staver if it decides to offer the quarterback from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy.
Staver, whose offer list includes Mississippi State, Louisville and Tennessee State, recently visited Alabama’s campus and plans to throw in front of Tide coaches in the future. Staver told ESPN RecruitingNation that Alabama is one of his top two schools despite the absence of an offer.
“It’s obvious it’s the best (program) right now in the country,” Staver said of Alabama. “I think the depth chart is favorable right now for a 2013 quarterback to come in.”
He’s right. Alabama is still looking for its first quarterback commitment for the class of 2013.
But the Crimson Tide could soon be facing more competition for Staver, who’s being recruited by Auburn, Tennessee, Duke, Florida State, Purdue and Virginia.
Staver believes his ability will show he deserves more offers than the three he currently holds.
“I see all these quarterbacks on the internet, and everybody’s talking big about them,” Staver told ESPN. “I’m only a two- or three-star on most things, but I’ve been to camps and competed against a lot of guys who are four-stars, and I’ve whooped their (butt), basically.”
