It turns out there is some shit Nick Saban does have time for – playing head games with recruits.
“Coach Saban was describing my highlight film and talking about he hadn’t seen a cornerback with cover skills like mine in a long time,” Wiggins told the AJC on Sunday night.
“It was a great conversation, and right at the end he said ‘I’ll offer you a scholarship to Alabama if you commit … today.’ Then he paused, waiting for a response. He took me by surprise by saying all of that.”
Surprisingly, the ShamWow (order today!) approach didn’t work. Carvell thinks Saban did this so he could claim he didn’t make an offer to Wiggins if the kid didn’t commit. Does Saban even care about that?
