Would Alabama ever recruit a gay football player? If Nick Saban is the head coach, the answer is yes.

The question has been a popular one this offseason, especially in light of the recent NFL Draft seeing Missouri defensive end Michael Sam make some history by becoming the first openly gay football player to be drafted by an NFL franchise. The St. Louis Rams selected the 2013 SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the seventh round. Sam’s momentous day continues to be opening doors for discussions regarding other openly gay athletes in various sports, college football included.

Asked about whether or not he would recruit an openly gay football player at the SEC spring meetings in Destin, Florida on Tuesday, Saban confirmed he would not hesitate to do so, with a very Saban-esque response.
