Recruit says Saban ate gator tail with him Wednesday night Posted on December 11, 2014 “Cant believe coach Saban never had gator tail before lol he loved it!” Did Nick Saban venture out of his Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie comfort zone on Wednesday night while recruiting CeCe Jefferson? Jefferson, a five-star defensive end from Florida, tweeted that Saban had gator tail for the first time. Alabama’s coaches were recruiting in Florida and Jefferson was a top target. He’s the No. 2 DE in the country and the No. 13 prospect overall according to Rivals. And yes, in case you were wondering, Florida is on the list of potential schools for Jefferson. So feel free to look for some symbolism in Saban’s culinary choice. At the end of the evening, Jefferson sounded positive about the visit. via Recruit says Nick Saban ate gator tail with him Wednesday night | Dr. Saturday – Yahoo Sports.
