Recruits flock to LSU-Alabama

The showdown between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama has everyone talking, especially recruits.

Many of the nation's top prospects will be in Tuscaloosa for Saturday night's game -- some on official visits, while dozens of others are coming on unofficial visits -- with five-star S Landon Collins (Geismar, La./Dutchtown) leading the way.

"It will be my official visit to Alabama," said Collins, who is No. 7 in the ESPNU 150 and the nation's top safety. "I am looking forward to hanging around the coaches and players. I want to see how they handle the hype and adversity. I will be watching the coaches closely and see how they focus on this big game."
