It probably isn't too hard for Nick Saban to sell recruits on joining Alabama. But just in case, Saban has a helicopter to get the job done.

Obviously Alabama offers the opportunity to play for SEC titles and national championships, but just in case that wasn't enough for prospects to commit to the program, Saban can always pull off an absolute power move.

The head coach of the Crimson Tide uses helicopters to travel to his recruiting destinations. He was recently seen landing on the football field at Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham.

While the identity of the recruit that he's visiting isn't known yet, it's safe to say Saban made a strong impression with this latest stunt.

Check it out:

The 2019 recruiting class for Alabama ranks No. 1 in the country, per 247Sports' composite team rankings. Defensive end Antonio Alfano and running back Trey Sanders are the two best incoming recruits for the Crimson Tide.

Perhaps Saban is trying to outwork every other program in the nation and get an early jump on his recruiting for 2020.
