Another member from Alabama’s top-ranked 2020 signing class is ready to emerge.

Javion Cohen, a sophomore from Phenix City, Ala., played in five games last year. Despite earning 27 snaps as a reserve offensive lineman, he was selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team.

The 6-foot-4, 325-pounder had a great spring, and Nick Saban stated during Wednesday’s presser at SEC Football Media Days on Cohen potentially starting in the fall.

“Javion Cohen has developed very nicely and will most likely be a starter,” Saban said.

The seven-time national champion added that Cohen will more than likely start at left guard.

He is a handful in the trenches.

After learning from Landon Dickerson, Alex Leatherwood, and Deonte Brown, it is now Cohen’s turn to become a star.
