Alabama fans saw Deontae Lawson, Ian Jackson, and Keanu Koht (outside linebacker) on A-Day, but another linebacker will arrive on campus in the summer.

Kendrick Blackshire, a four-star specimen from Duncanville, Texas, has been improving his footwork and adding more muscle to his frame.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder has the potential to be one of the best linebackers to play for the Crimson Tide, and fans are excited to see him.

He posted a video to Twitter of him doing weight training, and people cannot believe he is 18 years old.

It will be a challenge for him to create a role this season, but he has an opportunity to do it.

If Blackshire can impress coaches and teammates in summer workouts and fall camp, he will see action.
