Nick Saban making sure to pack the Crimson Tide roster with as many players as possible

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Even though the University of Alabama football team recently had seven underclassmen declare themselves eligible for the 2019 NFL Draft, and two departing transfers, the roster is full.

There will be more departures moving forward, some of which won't be announced until spring football and fall camp begin, but Nick Saban is making sure that unlike last year when he didn't sign a full recruiting class the Crimson Tide will again be either at or extremely close to the 85-man limit.

Alabama doesn't release information regarding scholarships, or details regarding academic issues and suspensions.

Here’s a look at each position group, with each player’s signing class, number of stars as a recruit -- 1-5, 5 being the best -- and overall ranking by 247Sports Composite (* means recruited at another position):
