COMMENTS FROM ALABAMA COACH MIKE SHULA REGARDING 2005 FOOTBALL SIGNEES

"I would like to thank our players and coaches for doing such a good job on our recruiting weekends.  They did so much to make these prospective student-athletes feel comfortable about Alabama and about the way we do things.

"We're excited about our class.  We have 33 commitments that came in today.  We have a plan for each one of them, very similar to what we did last year.  We addressed some needs, particularly at the running back position, defensive line and some with the corner (back) position.

"What this is going to do is a lot like last year.  When I look down at this list of players and how they will fit in on our depth chart, the one word that sticks out in my mind is competition.  I think we have created some real good competition much as we saw last year at certain positions, and that paid off for us.

"At the receiver position last year, we brought in some young guys who played and also made our guys who were already here better football players.  Again, recruiting seems like it goes on for a long, long time, but it is exciting.  Its about our future and as we saw last year, we played 13 of the 19 signees and there is a real good chance we could play close to that many again this year."

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:

THIS YEAR, IN ADDITION TO RECRUING HERE YOU WENT TO NEW YORK, FLORIDA AND OTHER PLACES.  WILL THAT CONTINUE TO BE YOUR PHILOSOPHY TO RECRUIT NATIONALLY?

"I'm not sure it will be like that every year.  We had some success early getting commitments from California, but our focus every year will still be the State of Alabama, first and then go to surrounding states.  There are some real good players in this state and in the surrounding states.  We got five commitments from the State of Florida.  There are a lot of good football players right here in our own backyard.  I think it does help us to be able to go out in some states outside this area and be competitive."

LAST YEAR, YOU GOT THE MAJORITY OF YOUR PLAYERS FROM IN STATE AND THIS YEAR, JUST THE OPPOSITE.  WAS THERE A CHANGE IN PHILOSOPHY?

"No, I just think that we got out a little bit more.  Last year was our first year (as a staff) and there were guys we focused on heavily in-state."

YOU GOT FOUR SIGNEES AT RUNNING BACK.  HOW IMPORTANT WAS IT TO GET THOSE GUYS THIS YEAR?

"It was very important.  We all saw what happened at the end of this year. We had a lot of injuries and all of a sudden, we're down to our fourth-string tailback.  With Ray (Hudson) leaving, in order for us to have a good future, we would have to sign some tailbacks.  We'll be young at that position (tailback), very similar to the wide receiver position last year."

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE A YEAR MADE WITH YOUR STAFF?

"There was more of a relaxed feeling with our staff.  For me personally, going through that process for the first time as a coach last year and not having anything to compare it to, while this year, I was able to make comparisons on how we did it last year.  We were able to further our relationships with coaches (high school) in the state and a few more out of state.  It takes time to establish yourself and letting people know who you are.  We have been in the high schools now and they get a chance to get to know us.  They get to know our personalities."

YOU'LL HAVE THREE NEW QUARTERBACKS THIS FALL, IS THAT UNUSUAL TO HAVE THAT SITUATION?

"Unusual?  I would say maybe, yeah.  I was here when signed three guys, when I was a senior.  We're not going to make a habit of it, but there were three quality football players at that position in Jimmy Johns, Jimmy Barnes and John Parker Wilson, guys who were very successful at their positions.  From what I know about each of this guys, they show very good leadership qualities and skills at that position."
