Alabama gets split signing day decisions

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama won at least two big recruiting battles on national signing day, and lost a couple.

The Crimson Tide landed North Carolina defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan Wednesday, while Russellville running back Brent Calloway chose Alabama over Auburn.

The Tide apparently lost out on two big targets. Offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio (Kwan'-jo) of Hyattsville, Md., said he would sign with Auburn while Columbus, Ga., running back Isaiah Crowell opted for Georgia.

Kouandjio hadn't signed by Wednesday afternoon.

The Tide's projected top 10 class featured Orlando high school teammates, safety Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix and running back Demetrius Hart. Rivals.com rates Clinton-Dix as the top safety and No. 7 overall prospect and declares Hart the nation's top all-purpose back.

Hart is among nine signees already enrolled.
