ESPN's Jeremy Crabtree named Alabama OLB coach Tosh Lupoi the nation's top recruiter for the 2017 cycle.

Lupoi has also been tagged as top recruiter in previous cycles with Washington and Cal. He has been with Alabama since the spring of 2014. "Some think it's easy to recruit at Alabama, but that isn't always the case," Crabtree writes, "especially when you're battling home-state LSU for [LB Dylan] Moses, battling Jim Harbaugh for five-star running back Najee Harris and convincing a No. 1-ranked quarterback such as Tua Tagovailoa to come when you started a true freshman this season." In total, Lupoi was responsible for four ESPN 300 names ultimately signing with the Tide.

CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler reports that Alabama is expected to hire Tosh Lupoi.

Lupoi's career appeared to be in jeopardy when he found himself in the middle of an NCAA recruiting probe while an assistant coach at Washington. Instead, he's landed on his feet following a six-week NCAA investigation that absolved him of wrongdoing. Lupoi, an ace recruiter and former DL coach, will not be a position coach with the Crimson Tide.

The NCAA won't penalize the Washington football program or former assistant coach Tosh Lupoi over allegations that Lupoi paid for a recruit's tutoring.

Tom Hosty, the NCAA's Director of Enforcement, said that the NCAA has "now completed the inquiry into those matters" and that "the enforcement staff does not believe that further action is warranted" in the investigation. Lupoi agreed to a "mutual separation" from Washington and is now a free agent. He is an ace recruiter, but also has an industry reputation as a coach who acts as though the rules don't apply to him.

Washington and USC are both investigating current Huskies' defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi for allegedly paying for online classes and the tutoring of a recruit.

Lupoi is an ace recruiter, but he also has an industry reputation as a coach who acts as though the rules don't apply to him. That demeanor likely endeared him to recruits, but the NCAA compliance office is not known for forgiveness. The allegations swirling around Lupoi involve defensive lineman Andrew Basham, who signed with UW in February but failed to qualify academically. Basham's track coach said Lupoi paid for Basham's online classes and tutoring. Lupoi was expected to follow Steve Sarkisian from Washington to USC, but a Trojans' source said there is a "less than zero" chance of that happening now.
