Alabama's football program is currently in Washington, D.C. More specifically - the Crimson tide are at the White House, being honored by the president.

Nick Saban and his players are there to celebrate their 2017 college football national championship. Alabama topped Georgia in the College Football Playoff title game earlier this January.

It's not all partying for Alabama in D.C., though. Saban, of course, is working.

Alabama's head coach revealed that he made some special calls while inside the White House today. Who were they to? We'll give you one guess...

"Nick Saban tells me he called recruits from the White House," says CNN's Kaitlan Collins.

Nick Saban is never not recruiting. Of course he is going to call recruits from inside the White House.

Alabama already has six commits in the 2019 class. The Crimson Tide's class ranks No. 9 in the country, highlighted by a commitment from 5-star offensive tackle Pierce Quick.

It wouldn't be surprising if Alabama adds some commits thanks to those phone calls from Saban inside the White House, either. That'd be one hell of a phone call to get if you're a high schooler (or anyone, really).
