Pro Football Talk is reporting that Nick Saban has told multiple NFL teams that pro scouts are not welcome on Alabama’s or at Crimson Tide practices. Saban has been critical of what he believes is the NFL’s tacit approval of corrupt agents luring college players as clients through illicit means under NCAA rules.
It’s rumored that Saban will open doors to scouts on a limited basis (some are saying August 18 could be a “scouts allowed” day). Don’t expect Saban to permanently bar NFL teams from Alabama’s campus. After all, a college coach needs to be able to tell recruits that if they play for him, they’ll have a good shot at making the NFL.
