    Do we have any chance with him? 247 has him 100% Alabama.

    Very good. Unfortunate we don't have a DB coach in place, but still.

    What is up not having a new db coach?

    Maybe Helton doesn't share an agent with one?

    IMO this is a must get recruit. We are so thin at Safety, and DBs in general. Hopefully, we get him.

    Haven’t you heard. HCCH has been robo-calling EVERY football program in America, including some of the better YOUTH programs, inviting coaches to call him back so he can make some CONNECTIONS in the business...until THAT happens, we just gotta be PATIENT.

    Fight On, FOREVER, Fight On!

    Apparently Alabama just flipped one of the top safety recruits in the country from Michigan, so it wouldn't be too outlandish if they back off on Pola-Gates. If they back off, I'd think it probably comes down to USC and ASU.

    Are they recruiting him as a safety or corner? He’s rated as a corner in 247.

    If we are we recruiting him as a safety, is he really going to want to compete against his own cousin?

    Alabama safety commit ranking #1 and #7, so we may get him with good new defense back coach

    i dont understand this. Helton not having any connections is a legitimate concern. There is the old rolodex joke but there is also evidence. He hired his brother. His QB coach was from WKU. He OL coach was essentially his uncle. His DC is a guy he met because they worked together under Kiff...

    Gee.... you make it sound like he lost the majority of the games they played with that staff..... I assure you, KK wasn’t a n Helton’s Rolodex....

    The west coast answer to not having big oline and dline recruits, like the sec, is to get the great polynesian kids from California, utah, Oregon, and Arizona, if we start losing these kids to Alabama too, we are toast. I realize this kid isn’t a dlineman but we should have a family oriented culture that keeps these kids in the west, where they are from. Come on clay.

    Considering his cousin is on the team, it should be family oriented.
