Now that most of the newcomers are on campus, speculation about which ones might play next season will begin ramping up. Last season, 12 true freshmen saw action. In this year's incoming class, several might play on special teams and in reserve roles. Which ones might make the biggest impact? It's way too early to answer that question. But here's a look at five freshmen to watch.

One of the nation's top defensive backs in the 2018 class is Marietta-Lassiter, GA standout Derrik Allen.

For Mitch Gaspard’s Crimson Tide baseball team, it was win Wednesday or sweat/hope/pray for four days as a member of the loser’s bracket.

The feel-good story of the Tide's 2016 class was that of Joshua Jacobs.

Jacobs chose the Tide on signing day. He plans to arrive in Tuscaloosa on May 28.
