PODCAST: Former Alabama WR says Mac Jones is ‘the man for the job’ at QB this season

Reinhold Matay - USA TODAY Sports

Mac Jones or Bryce Young? 

The question on who should be Alabama’s starting quarterback in the fall will go into spring practice, summer workouts and August camp.

Despite the talent both players have, Crimson Tide fans are excited to see what Young can provide.

A five-star from Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, Calif., Young had a career of 13,250 passing yards and 178 touchdowns. 

Listed at 6-foot, 190 pounds, Young brings an elite dual-threat ability that people saw in Tua Tagovailoa from 2017-19. He was given a diamond grade of one from Touchdown Alabama Magazine, which means “immediate contributor and game changer.”

Some have even forged the idea of Young possibly being better than the former national champion.

He is grabbing the attention; however, Jones enters his fourth season in the program.

A redshirt junior from Jacksonville, Fla., Jones played in 12 games in 2019 – including four stars versus Arkansas, W. Carolina, Auburn and Michigan. 

He recorded a pair of 300-yard passing games (Auburn, Michigan) and tossed for at least two scores in all four of his starts. Jones accounted for 1,503 yards with 14 touchdowns to three interceptions. Not too many see him as a championship-caliber quarterback, but one of his former teammates does.

In an interview with yours truly of TDA Magazine, Mac Hereford (wide receiver) said Jones is ‘the man for the job’ on In My Own Words 

Alabama fans, do you think Jones is championship material?
