Nick Saban Reveals 2 Most Important Words On Scouting Report

  Nick Saban Reveals 2 Most Important Words On Scouting Report Over the past 15 years, Nick Saban has sent over a hundred Alabama players into the NFL by way of the NFL Draft. But he also has some NFL draft scouting experience to lean on that he shares with his players. In an interview with James Light, Saban revealed that there are two words that […] The post Nick Saban Reveals 2 Most Important Words On Scouting Report appeared first on The Spun.

The Alabama Crimson Tide took full advantage of the transfer portal on Saturday to land highly touted linebacker Henry To’o To’o, and don’t say Nick Saban didn’t warn you.

To’o To’o, formerly a standout linebacker for the Tennessee Volunteers, announced his commitment to Alabama on Saturday. The Crimson Tide beat out the likes of Ohio State for him.

There are definitely coaches who hate the rule. For some, it might be because while they feel the same way as Saban does; they won’t be the ones benefitting from it. Whatever the case, it sure looks like the Alabama coach was right to offer the warning he did.
