We all know that Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is a great recruiter, so it’s no surprise that he swooped right in when four-star running back Jordan Stevenson was denied enrollment at Wisconsin for academic reasons earlier this week.
According to Ryan Bartow of 247 Sports, Saban is personally recruiting Stevenson to bring his talents to Tuscaloosa, as the Tide need some help at running back behind junior Derrick Henry.
Of course, Alabama has some competition. A former star at Dallas’ South Oak Cliff High, Stevenson has also received calls from Florida, Oklahoma State, Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee, Nebraska and others. Teams are so interested in Stevenson that he posted the following on his personal Twitter page yesterday afternoon.

Of course, Stevenson has yet to make a decision, but Campus Sports will update his story as more information becomes available.
