    Bama offered immediate playing time, Travis told him he'd be behind a lot of wings.
    Mama always told me, stupid is as stupid does. @danagardens

    I read that same comment from someone else, but Iím not sure thatís true. Bama has a 6-9 JUCO, who is a Jr, and a 6-5 redshirt freshman 3-star, land no senior, listed in the same position. Iím not sure Holt gets immediate playing time with either program, and I doubt that any coach actually promises any freshman anything more than the opportunity to have immediate playing time. No guarantees.

    He just did....it’s Alabama

    “I will be taking my talents to The University of Alabama,” he told ZAGSBLOG ahead of his public announcement. “What made me pick them is just an overall fit for me. Play style, close enough to home, coach [Nate] Oats, and available minutes”.

    I'm fine not getting a kid who uses the phrase, "I will be taking my talents to..."

    "... available minutes." That pretty much sums it up. Hope it works out for him. Travis and company must feel like they are in good positions for the 2022 class with a lot of priority guys. When I read the Enquirer article I kind of got the vibe that filling that last scholly was no longer a priority for 2021 and they are happy with how things are looking currently:
    "The 2022 class is loaded, nationally," Steele said. "It's a great class. I just want to make sure we do the right thing with this last spot because, on paper, we still have some scholarships to give, but sometimes that can clutter your roster and it doesn't make it quite as appealing for a really good 2022 kid."
    I have complete faith in coach Steele and Co.
