New Saban Letter Touts His NFL Pros
You’d think that offering potential recruits a scholarship to a program that has won three out of the last four BCS national titles would be all the ammunition Alabama head coach Nick Saban and his staff would need on the recruiting trail.
But wait, there’s more! In very colorful fashion, Saban and his staff have also been touting his ability to recruit and develop future NFL players.
Alabama’s recent recruits have been receiving a letter containing a collage of the jerseys of all 111 players Saban has sent to the NFL since 1991 (following his lone season as the head coach at Toledo). It doesn’t matter that today’s recruits probably don’t recognize the names (or jerseys) of the players at the top when they see the “33 players drafted in his 6 years at the University of Alabama” stat at the bottom.
“Stranglehold” seems like too weak a word to describe what Saban and Alabama have on the college football landscape right now…
