Northwest Community College defensive tackle Tarow Barney made an unofficial visit to Alabama on Wednesday.
Barney has several offers, but the unbeaten Crimson Tide (8-0) are looking at his grades before offering him.
"The visit went pretty good," Barney told Tidesports.com. "They called me last week told me they were interested in me and wanted me to visit. It was my first time going there.
"Nick Saban told me told me they want me to come there. He said he really wants me to play there, but they have to check out my academics first before making the offer official. He said once they go over my transcripts they will be able to let me know."
