    Which recruits are still looking for a committable offer from Alabama? Will Alabama give a green light for a commitment? Several are hoping to make a strong impression to the Tide coaches this fall and others are waiting for some of Alabama's top targets to commit elsewhere.

    The in-state athlete is having a great senior season. Joiner has been on Alabama's radar since his junior season. He has taken several trips to Tuscaloosa. Joiner could join LSU's class before Alabama puts on a full court press. Maybe things will change if Alabama decides he is a need in this class.

    There was an expectation of Cunningham to join Alabama's class in the spring. Alabama opted to wait until he performed at camp. He suffered a turf toe injury which required surgery and set him back until a few games into his senior season. Cunningham still hopes to become a part of Alabama's class.

    Johnson was on the sidelines since the spring with an elevated number of muscle enzymes. He favored Alabama at one point. It now seems Mississippi State is the favorite to land the in-state target. Alabama is still recruiting him, but is not considered a take for the Tide at this time.

    Alabama was impressed with Parker throughout the summer. He remains on the verge of receiving an offer. Alabama signed a pair of tight ends in 2017 and plans to take one this year.

    Luke Ford
    , the nation's No. 1 tight end, considers Alabama as one of his favorite. Alabama is likely to wait for Ford to decide, or perhaps see if Texas commitment
    Dominick Anderson
    returns for a visit this fall before extending an offer to Parker.

    Alabama still has interest in the in-state defensive lineman. Alabama is waiting on the decision of a couple of top defensive line targets including

    Coynis Miller
    , set to decide on Saturday, and
    Bobby Brown
    , scheduled to announce on November 2. Langham could receive a call from Alabama in the coming weeks if the Tide strikes out on both targets. Brown is Alabama's top defensive line target. Miller is also a top target, but not expected to choose the Tide.

    Alabama would like to add a running back in the 2018 class. Curry is starting to receive strong consideration for an offer from the Crimson Tide. Alabama missed on its top two running back targets-

    Zamir White
    (UGA) and
    Asa Martin
    (Auburn). The LSU commitment has interest in Alabama, and it will only get stronger if an offer is extended.

    Brumfield took an unofficial visit to Alabama a few weekends ago. The Texas Tech commitment is on Alabama's radar after running backs coach Burton Burns watched him in action. Curry (mentioned above) and Brumfield appear as the next backs in line to earn an offer. Alabama may wait for

    Jerome Ford
    to decide or see if Martin or White will return for an official visit.

    Beal has been mentioned often throughout the last year as an Alabama target. He is ranked as a tight end, but could potentially play on the offensive or defensive line. Alabama continues to show interest. He is definitely a player who may receive strong consideration from the Tide.

    The younger brother of Alabama freshman wide receiver Henry Ruggs was heavily recruited by the Tide months ago. He remains on Alabama's radar. Ruggs is a tremendous athlete yet still a little raw as football player. It remains to be seen which position he will play at the next level. He is recruited as a defensive athlete.

    Mason grew up an Alabama fan. He was one of the first recruits in the 2018 class to earn a verbal offer from Alabama. He is not considered a major target for Alabama at this time, and did not receive an official offer from Alabama in August. Mason did well at Alabama's camp, and continues to visit Tuscaloosa.
