Alabama’s Will Anderson is the ‘next Jadeveon Clowney’ according to sources

He gave us a taste of his dominance in 2020, but it was only the tip of the iceberg.

As a true freshman, William Anderson grabbed the hearts of Alabama football fans. People knew his potential out of high school; however, the joy came from seeing a five-star perform like one.

He was a nightmare for offenses in the Southeastern Conference, especially during the latter portion of the year. Anderson concluded his first season with 52 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, eight quarterback pressures, and one forced fumble. He told reporters that his confidence grew with each game, and the final result was him earning Freshman All-American honors.

Anderson also won Shaun Alexander National Freshman of the Year from the Football Writers Association of American. He was given the nickname, “Terminator,” by Crimson Tide fans, and the sophomore looks to ruin every offense Alabama faces in the fall. The native Georgian has been dominant at spring practice.

According to respectable sources, no one has been able to neutralize Anderson.

He has the Tide’s young offensive line frustrated, as the first-team defense kept the offense from driving the football through two scrimmages.
