Harold Joiner, an ATH in the 2018 class, announced his top 6 on today via Twitter and included Alabama.

Auburn, USC, Texas, Michigan State and UCLA were the other five schools.

Most recruiting outlets have him ranked as the 4th player in the state. ESPN has him listed as an athlete and 247 Sports has him at running back. Currently, he garners a four-star rating.

At 6’4″ and 218 pounds, he has the size to play multiple positions. He is a bit tall for a RB and most teams may think twice about lining him up in the backfield. The same assumption was made about Derrick Henry before he came to Tuscaloosa, although Henry was 20 pounds heavier than Joiner coming out of high school.

Joiner could possibly be move to receiver or tight end at the next level. He actually has the perfect body make up to compete for the ball in the air and make catches over smaller defenders that may have great coverage skills.

It has been reported to ESPN that he runs a 4.76 in the 40. His deceptive quickness allows him to pull away from defenders with ease. It is going to be hard for any defender to catch him once he has broken free.

Joiner is a product of Mountain Brook High School, the high school of former Alabama center William Vlachos.

Some Alabama fans are starting to panic about Alabama’s recruiting progress so far. There is still potential for it to have a top 5 class with all the number of recruits that are considering them to be among their top schools.
