DeVonta Smith’s final run with the Crimson Tide has been filled with impressive games and numerous accolades. One of those awards was even college football’s top individual prize in the Heisman Trophy, which hadn’t been won by a receiver since Desmond Howard in 1991.

But former Alabama player OJ Howard has a different idea for how to honor Smith’s historic season.

He’d want Smith to become the first Alabama to get his own statue.

Based on what Smith has accomplished this season, a statue may, in fact, be warranted. On top of the Heisman Trophy, Smith is the SEC’s all-time leader in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and is second in receptions.

He’s the most decorated receiver in Alabama history and also had an amazing performance in the national championship game against Ohio State.

It’s never happened before but the evidence is valid.
