This year the Tide secured 3 top 10 running backs (Kamara, Tenpenny, and Jones) in their recruiting class. I guess what I don't understand is, what is the appeal to these kids to go to a school with two running backs of equal (maybe slightly lesser) talent, and sit behind a roster of running backs such as T.J. Yeldon (SO), Kenyan Drake (SO), Dee Hart (who was a RS), and Trey Roberts (SO). I mean, for intents and purposes, Saban is going to give these returning guys a look before three freshman, and if any of these guys catch on ala' Trent Richardson, there is no way those three freshman are going to see time in the next year, probably two if whomever in that group of returning players becomes a star and stays all 4 years.
On top of that, you're going to a school that has over signed, and has more than enough talent in the back field. Just seems like these guys are taking a huge risk with their futures, so I was curious if anyone thought they had any idea on what the appeal is of going that route?
