One of those freshmen who coach Nick Saban already considers an impact player is Dee Liner of Muscle Shoals.

Gene Stallings says he will believe Johnny Manziel 'didn't receive any money' 'until told otherwise'

"What I really hope is that he signed those autographs thinking they went to people that were fans of his and didn't receive any money. That's what I'm going to believe until I'm told otherwise."

Yeldon running toward lofty goals

Alabama sophomore running back T.J. Yeldon stated a basic goal for his career.

Gus Malzahn awards 3 Auburn walk-ons with scholarships

Two in-state players were awarded scholarships during the Tigers' annual "Rookie Night' festivities on campus.

Sophomore tailback Todd Gurley had two rushing touchdowns and 72 receiving yards Wednesday night as Georgia conducted its second preseason scrimmage inside Sanford Stadium.
