Few teams have more cause to be frustrated about Raiola joining Georgia than Alabama, who are falling behind in the 2024 recruiting cycle. At the moment, they only have six hard commits, and their class ranks No. 20 in the country, which is a relatively low ranking for this program.
However, the Crimson Tide always plays the long game at quarterback. They already have a top-five QB prospect in the ’24 class in Julian Sayin, and now they’re making a play for the best quarterback in the class of 2025.
That would be Belleville (Mich.) five-star QB Bryce Underwood, who they recently made an offer to, according to Roll Tide Wire.
As a Sophomore, Underwood (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) led his team to a perfect 14-0 season, throwing for 2,762 yards and 37 touchdowns and rushing for another 632 yards and eight more scores.

There’s plenty of competition to go around for Underwood, though. He has offers from nearly 40 different programs, including Arkansas, Auburn, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Texas.
