Alabama Football is known for hitting the recruiting trail hard all year round, which allows for the Crimson Tide program to reload instead of rebuild.

The 2022 recruiting class is on campus now and is getting prepared for the upcoming college football season. However, the 2023 target prospects are the center of attention right now.

Below, we list off the top-10 recruiting prospects from the 2023 class that Alabama is targeting. A decision has been made to exclude players who have verbally committed to play elsewhere.

Whether it be quarterback Arch Manning or the top offensive lineman in the nation, Alabama’s interested in landing many of the highest-ranked players in the 2023 class.
