Alabama has quite the in-state talent at its disposal in the 2023 class. Seven players rank inside of the top 100 with four five-stars. Battling Auburn, Georgia, and even Clemson for their signatures with be difficult.
Cornerback Tony Mitchell out of Thompson High School is the top-ranked prospect within the state. Alabama was the sixth program to offer the five-star, seeing the potential in him back in July 2019.
On Monday, Mitchell released his top seven schools, including the Crimson Tide. Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oregon, and Texas A&M also made the list. Florida State, Miami, and Ohio State were cut from his top 10.
Auburn was not added after being cut in August despite receiving a visit this summer.
Mitchell has taken three unofficial visits to Tuscaloosa alongside Junior Day before the pandemic began according to 247Sports. Defensive line coach Freddie Roach has been the lead recruiter for the cornerback.
As things stand, Alabama has no commitments in the 2023 class. They already lead for some of the top prospects, including Mitchell. Three crystal ball predictions were flipped from Tennessee to the Crimson Tide after a March 7, 2020 visit to campus.
On the 247Sports composite, Mitchell is the No. 1 player in the state of Alabama and No. 11 on the national scale. At the cornerback position, the two-time state champion ranks at No. 2.
