When it comes to Brookwood wide receiver De'Nylon Morrissette, there may be a clear early favorite in his recruitment. The former Mobile, Alabama resident has openly called the Crimson Tide his "dream offer."

"I'm an Alabama fan. I grew up an Alabama fan, so all the Alabama gear I wear, that's just the fan side of me talking. Everything is great with Alabama, and I like them a lot. We're just taking it slow still. A lot of schools have been staying in touch, but I'm just taking it slow."

Though the Tide may have an edge, the in-state Bulldogs aren't giving up Morrissette without a fight.

That's especially true in the halls of Brookwood, where teammates Marquis Groves-Killebrew and Sam M'Bake have both been making the case for Athens to their Rivals250 teammate.
