After the thrilling Iron Bowl, it looked like the battles between Alabama and Auburn won't have to wait until next season. Nope, with the Early Signing Period set to begin on Dec. 18, the two SEC powerhouses will go head-to-head for a 4-star offensive tackle.

On Tuesday, 6-5, 275-pound Javion Cohen took to Twitter to let fans of both programs know he'll be making his final decision next Wednesday. It must be noted he's currently committed to the Tigers. Will Nick Saban and Co. be able to flip him?

While Cohen is still a verbal pledge to the Tigers, Alabama hosted him for an official visit earlier this month. The trip to Tuscaloosa clearly made an impact on him, as he's still leaving the door open to potentially sign with the Tide.

Cohen is one of the top offensive tackles in the country. He picked up 34 offers throughout his recruitment and is the No. 13 Alabama prospect for his class. Now, we'll have to wait and see which in-state program he decides to join.

Saban vs. Gus Malzahn out on the recruiting trail trying to land a top prospect. What could be better?
