Alabama Sends Personalized Photos to Commits at The Opening

By DJ Byrnes on July 7, 2014 at 12:55p

Sammy Silverman's crown is still safe, but Alabama is decidedly head-above-shoulders above its SEC rivals in the Photoshop game.

Here's a sampling of personalized photos Alabama is sending to various commitments at Nike's football training camp, The Opening.

(I have no problem believing that guy will be a quarterback for Alabama.)

(This guy looks like he's in his thirties.)

(This guy has two pythons sewn into the place where his arms should be.)

(The big homie, Lester Cotton, is going to be a monster, isn't he?)

Overall, solid work from whomever is whipping up Alabama's graphics these days. It's definitely an under-valued recruiting tool, but it's no surprise a top-flight program like 'Bama is all over it.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. 

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Its the same background for 3 of the 4 pictures, everything is the same except the players themselves. Its like using a template. I know some of Sammy's stuff is reused from time to time but the same one for 4 different players. How about mixing it up somewhat!

with that said, the work is good. By far better than the SEC crayon drawings!

Lester Cotton has got some Urkel thing going on I don't know what! Their defensive backfield is just going to be nuts with the talent they are pulling in back there. I would say a step or two ahead of OSU, for now!

I saw a UFO told me to have a goodyear!

I was thinking the same thing squirrel. Not very personal at all. Reminds me of a football card. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

And Blake Barnett could pass for Joe Namath, especially with the hair.

Blake Barnett might be older than Otis Nixon.
