Video: Alabama Commit VanDarius Cowan Calls Out Rivals Over His Lack Of 5-Star Ranking

At, Alabama linebacker commit VanDarius Cowan is a five-star recruit, and the No. 2 outside linebacker in the country. The other recruiting sites aren't quite as bullish on the future Crimson Tide 'backer, however, and at The Opening, he made sure to call them out. Specifically, he wants his fifth star from the folks at Rivals. Wade called out the site during an interview with Scout.

">@vandarius98 was loud and clear when asked what he wanted to prove this week.

To be fair to Rivals, ESPN and 247Sports both have Cowan as a four-star player as well. Either way, any linebacker being offered by Alabama is probably pretty special, whether or not he has been assigned that elusive fifth star by the four major recruiting services.
