The Alabama Crimson Tide currently own the No. 1 recruiting class in the 2019 cycle. Nick Saban and company have been a recruiting powerhouse for years and while their streak of landing the No. 1 class ended last year, the Tide find themselves back on top.

However, according to a report from Marcus Benjamin, a top Alabama commit is expected to decommit from the Tide. Four-star defensive end recruit Khris Bogle is expected to make his commitment official next week, but it won't be to Nick Saban.

According to Benjamin, Miami, Florida and Clemson are the favorites to land the top recruit.

If Benjamin's report isn't enough to convince the doubters, 247Sports agrees. According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions Miami is the heavy favorite to land the four-star defensive end recruit.

Despite being committed to Alabama, the Tide received just four-percent of the Crystal Ball Predictions. It looks like Saban and company will be losing one of their top recruits just before the signing period.

Bogle is the No. 3 weak-side defensive end recruit in the country and the No. 71 recruit overall. He'd add to a major haul for Manny Diaz since he took over as the team's coach earlier this year.

Stay tuned.
