    This is interesting to me because I would think that the top tier schools would be most likely to get these types of versatile players. Ideally, wouldn’t these be the most desirable players.

    I always that teams like alabama should be able to get players where they could stay in one personnel group all drive but be able to show any kind of formation they want because of the type of recruits they could get.

      The most popular model for blue blood programs is to get the best athletes and then coach them up to execute a role well enough to create a dominating cumulative effect.

      Alabama is unique in that they often develop fairly versatile players and seem to aim to get kids either with the capacity to become good all-around players or that are already more or less there.

      Going for suburban ball means putting a ton of 4.8 guys on the field on both sides of the ball.
