Hibbet is a product of Florence High School in Florence, Alabama. The Florence product is an Alabama legacy as his grandfather, Dennis Homan is a former Alabama wide receiver. Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping describes the new Alabama pledge as a long snapper with some potential.
“Hibbet is a very very strong long snapper,” Rubio said. “He has great potential, great upside and I love his upside.”
One on One Kicking, which trains some of the best specialist in the country, including current NFL talent has helped Hibbet continue to get better as he thanked them doing his commitment tweet.
Florence used Hibbet as a long snapper and as a tight end during his senior season, which allowed Hibbet to show there was more to his game.
WATCH HIBBET’S HIGHLIGHTS BELOW:
Alabama has shown that they are willing to give walk-on specialist a chance to earn playing time. Special team players: Ty Perine, Chase Allen and Sam Johnson have all started at least one game for the Tide after being walk-on players. The door is open for Hibbet to do the same as Thomas Fletcher, Alabama’s current long snapper, is a senior.
