While it was a working progress getting Josh Jobe academically eligible to enroll at the University of Alabama, he and fellow freshmen defensive back Patrick Surtain Jr both are expected to have a major impact in the secondary for the upcoming season.  

Coming in this year’s recruiting class, Jobe and Surtain will try to help fill the void left behind from six players that declared for the NFL Draft after the 2017 season.
