Today ends a month-long NCAA dead period prohibiting coaches from talking to recruits.

Football coaches can start contacting prospects and line up recruiting visits on campus.

Entering the final four weeks of recruiting until National Signing Day on Feb. 5, Alabama has the top-ranked class by Scout.com and Rivals.com. The Crimson Tide will have their seventh No. 1 class under coach Nick Saban, should all of the commitments remain.

Alabama has an impressive recruiting haul, featuring East Mississippi Community College defensive linemen Jarran Reed, D.J. Pettway, Norman, Okla. quarterback David Cornwell and West Monroe, La. offensive lineman Cameron Robinson.

New Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has hit the recruiting trail for the Crimson Tide, according to Al.com. Kiffin has a reputation as an outstanding recruiter during his stint at Southern Cal and Tennessee.
