Alabama commit Jordan Davis has a theory as to why the Crimson Tide has just five commitments in its 2018 class, and it has nothing to do with head coach Nick Saban or his staff losing a step.

“In my mindset, there’s a reason why a lot of athletes don’t commit to Alabama,” Davis said. “It’s because they are scared to compete. I know you compete every place you go, but at Alabama, you compete every single day. You can’t waste any time, you just have to grind. It’s just something that I don’t think a lot of athletes can keep up with the dynasty at Bama under Coach Nick Saban.”

Davis, a four-star weakside defensive end from Memphis, Tenn., was the first member of Alabama’s 2018 class, committing to the Tide this past December. He is currently joined in the class by a trio of four-stars in defensive back Jalyn Armour-Davis, linebacker Quay Walker and wide receiver Xavier Williams, as well as the nation’s No. 2 kicker Skyler DeLong.
