Recruit Claims Nick Saban Tried Gator Tail During Visit

Nick Saban will apparently do -- or at least taste -- anything to get a recruit. Saban visited five-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson today, and apparently Jefferson convinced Alabama's head coach to do something he's never done before: eat gator tail.

You really can't blame Saban for trying something new if it means potentially securing a commitment from Jefferson, as he is the No. 5 recruit in America in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports. Then again, it seems like Saban enjoyed his meal, so maybe gator tail will become part of his regular diet.

Saban's Crimson Tide will take on Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015. The national semifinal will be televised on ESPN, and it is scheduled to kick off at 8:30 P.M. EST.
