WATCH: Breaking down Alabama’s wide receivers for spring practice

On Monday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine previewed the position on In My Own Words.

The Crimson Tide returns John Metchie, Slade Bolden, and Xavier Williams as veterans. Javon Baker is back as a talented sophomore, and Alabama signed three freshmen in this year’s class. Metchie is out to prove he can be the No. 1 option, while Bolden and Williams look to hold off the freshmen. If Baker can become a complete player, he will see a lot of action too.

Spring practice begins on Friday, as the Tide prepares to defend its national championship.
