Brooks has been on Alabama’s tail all summer about possible NCAA violations, most of which were tied to T-Town Menswear owner Tom Albetar,which Alabama disassociated from last year. Whether or not any of it is true remains to be seen because the NCAA has yet to lend a firm hand in that mess.
But he also said he would sign a piece of paper to show that they are keeping their word – they are going to sign it and they want me to sign it to make sure I know I still have my scholarship.” [Emphasis added.]
So this kid believes he’s going to get some sort of binding commitment from Alabama for a scholarship in a year’s time. I can’t wait to hear from the NCAA about that. (Not to mention every school in the SEC.)
I said most interesting, because that’s not the only eye-popping comment this kid made. Check this out:
“He said I’m going to stay in Georgia. They are going to find me a job. I’m going to work.
Feb 2011 Alabama still on probation mind you!!
The NCAA Committee on Infractions released a statement last year calling the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa the following:
A "serial repeat violator," with an "abysmal infractions track record" and an "extensive recent history of infractions cases unmatched by any other member institution in the NCAA.”
There were (allegedly) recruiting violations with current high school junior, Barry Sanders, Jr. He was seen at a recent home basketball game seated with his dad, Barry Sanders Sr. (NFL Hall of Famer) and coach Nick Saban sitting right between them. Sure, it’s conceivable they got their tickets from the same scalper. "Hey, Barry, what’s up!? Great seats, huh? Oh really, your son plays football? How nice."
I probably could have gotten two seats together.

ESPN is reporting that “A man found dead Tuesday in a Memphis home is believed to be Logan Young, an Alabama booster convicted of bribing a high school football coach to get a top recruit for the Crimson Tide.” Police are investigating the case as a homicide.----A hit probably put out by ALABAMA BOOSTERS
