Crimson and Blue Chips, the Alabama football and recruiting podcast, is now affiliated with BamaOnLine. CABC linked up with the premiere site covering Alabama athletics and recruiting as part of the 247Sports network earlier this month. In addition to host John Garcia, Jr., BOL regulars Tim Watts, Kirk McNair, Hank South and others will join the conversation on a more consistent basis to provide expert perspective on the Crimson Tide on and off the field, an audible roster unmatched elsewhere in the space. The show will remain a free listen on BOL, itunes, and via social media (#CABC on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) moving forward.

On today's program, it's all about the quarterback. BOL's Hank South stops by to break down the unusual late addition of class of 2018 quarterback Layne Hatcher and just how it helped Nick Saban accomplish another goal. 247Sports' Blair Angulo also joins the program fresh off of a trip to Steve Clarkson's annual assembly of top high school and college passers, "The Quarterback Retreat." Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa was a counselor and spun it some, as did younger brother and four-star Crimson Tide commitment Taulia Tagovailoa. Angulo comments on what he saw from each, how the brothers are progressing as well as where they are similar and different at the same stage having scouted each more than most. We also get into UA's chances with another top quarterback prospect, DJ Uiagalelei, who is perhaps the top prospect at the position for 2020, about to make a trip to Tuscaloosa. More listener question and answer follows our guests as we tackle topics from the current Alabama roster, with most of the 2018 class now on campus, to recruiting and beyond.
