Written by Mike White on .

In this week's Recruit Report, Post-Gazette writer Mike White writes about -- among other topics -- the recruiting success the University of Alabama continues to have. Click here to read his story.

"For the University of Alabama football team, everything keeps coming up No. 1.
The Crimson Tide won the past two national championships. This year, the team is ranked No. 1 in the country. And, so far in recruiting, Alabama has put together what is widely regarded as the No. 1 class.

Rivals.com, scout.com and 247sports.com are national scouting services that all rank Alabama's recruiting class No. 1 in the country. High school seniors can't sign a binding letter of intent with a college until February, and there is still plenty of recruiting to be done. But Alabama already has verbal commitments from 21 players.

The top player in the class so far is 6-foot-6, 320-pound offensive lineman Cameron Robinson of West Monroe, La. He is rated a five-star recruit by scouting services. But Alabama also has commitments from 14 four-star recruits. One of those is 6-5, 235-pound quarterback David Cornwell, who plays at Norman North High in Norman, Okla."
