Wow, good enough for Bama, but not good enough for Arkansas?

Interesting. I've seen the kid play and he's a three star recruit at best. His velocity isn't that good and has terrible accuracy on anything over 20 yards. My guess is somebody is about to transfer and they need another scholarship QB to carry a clipboard.
.
Regardless, best wishes to the kid. Getting a scholarship to play football for Alabama is a BIG DEAL regardless.

Bielema, part 2. Alabama doesn't give away scholarships, Pack. They recruit and land the players they want. Pretty sure our latest QB commit was a 3star from MS....why not take the 3star in your own state? Congrats to Layne for a Hall of Fame type high school career!

Wonder why or whether our Hog Team really got after Hatcher? Anyway, Layne, some would rather chance the splinters of the bench for 'Bama than throw for anybody else. Good luck!

Agree , mostly, with sea bass assessment of LH ...but.......

Mere mortals cannot question the man deity SABAN ...alabama doesn't wast scholarships & from eedt to east what QB would not take a scholarship from My Olympus.

The Tide needs depth because either Hurts or Tagovailoa could transfer. Hatcher is the 53rd ranked dual threat quarterback in the 2018. Saban must have seen something or figure he can coach him up. He's not typical Tide recruit.
