Alabama and Auburn are both expected to bring in highly rated recruiting hauls on national signing day.
The Crimson Tide entered Wednesday likely to land the nation's top-rated group. Alabama has had Rivals.com's No. 1 class each of the past three years.
The Tide's group is expected to include a quintet of players rated five-star prospects by Rivals. That includes defensive end Da'Shawn Hand, offensive tackle Cameron Robinson and cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
Recruiting sites have Auburn's class rated in the Top 10 nationally. The Tigers' signees are expected to include Oxford running back Racean "Roc" Thomas and St. Paul's linebacker Tre' Williams.
Both teams are finalists for five-star Auburn High linebacker Rashaan Evans.
At UAB, it will be the first signing class for new coach Bill Clark.
