Despite their 2022 class being ranked outside the top 10 less than a month ago, Alabama now finds itself No. 6 overall and No. 2 in the SEC behind LSU, according to 247Sports.com.

Ohio State ranks No. 1 in recruiting nationally, but is now tied with Alabama in numer of 5-star commits (3) after the announcement from Jeremiah Alexander earlier this month.

5-Star Ty Simpson is a 6-foot-2 athletic quarterback who is known for extending plays and making clucth throws outside of the pocket. He committed to Saban and Alabama in February of 2021 and was the first 5-star for their 2022 recruiting class.

RB Emmanuel Henderson is a native of Hartford, Alabama and, in March of 2021, was the second 5-star to commit to the Bama 2022 class. According to 247Sports composite rankings, Henderson is the No. 1 recruit at the the running back position in the country.

Jeremiah Alexander, the most recent of the three 5-star commits to the 2022 class, is a 6-foot-2, 235 lbs edge rusher from Thopmson High School in Alabaster, Alabama. He's listed on 247Sports.com as the No. 1 prospect at his position in the country as well as the No. 1 player in the state.

Looking ahead, Bama fans should still anticipate the commitment of a few key players, including 5-star defensive lineman Walter Nolan, the No. 3 ranked recruit in the country, and 5-star offensive tackle Zach Rice who is listed as the No. 1 OT in the class.
