Alabama’s new weight room becomes yet another recruiting tool

Last summer, Alabama announced plans for a new strength and conditioning facility and according to a photo posted by Alabama linebacker Matt Tinney, the construction seems to be going smashingly.

The two-story facility is 34,000 square feet and cost $9 million. It’s not just for football, it’s for all of Alabama’s sports.

"When people come to Alabama, they expect to see the best," Saban said in June. "We should always strive to have the best. As long as we have the resources and we can provide the best for our student-athletes, that's what we should do in all sports."

The facility was completed in January and has probably been a fantastic recruiting tool as the Crimson Tide attempts to lock down another top recruiting class.Well, the weight room and all those glass footballs.
