Alabama football likes 2023 OL TJ Shanahan ‘nasty’ playing style

TJ Shanahan

TJ Shanahan reported an offer from Alabama football Tuesday.

Shanahan holds more than 30 D1 football offers. Alabama, Texas A&M, Kentucky and North Carolina are the latest programs to offer the 2023 prospect. News of Shanahan’s offer from the Crimson Tide came from Alabama’s wide receiver coach Holmon Wiggins.

“My head coach told me that he had a long conversation with coach Wiggins yesterday morning,” Shanahan told Touchdown Alabama. “I talked to my coach before basketball practice and got in contact with coach Wiggins later that evening, and they offered me.”

The Florida product said he felt getting an offer from Alabama was a blessing.

“I felt very blessed,” Shanahan said. “The program is unbelievable. The players’ work ethic is on a whole different level, and I could tell that by watching them throughout this season. Having a chance to play for coach Nick Saban is surreal.”

Shanahan currently stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs 300 pounds. He has experience at playing offensive guard and offensive tackle. He can explode out of his stance when blocking for the run, and he plays with an edge.

Alabama’s coaching staff expressed to Shanahan that they love his aggressive playing style.

“They said they loved how nasty and how aggressive I play on the field, and how technical I am as well,” Shanahan said. “They feel I will be a great fit for the University of Alabama.”
