The Tide’s four-star offensive lineman commit, Tyler Booker told Touchdown Alabama Jones was one of the players he really wanted to join him in Tuscaloosa.
“I want to help bring in Earl Little and Marvin Jones,” Booker said. “Those are my top two.”
Jones currently stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 245 pounds. American Heritage allows the long prospect to rush from the edge in a similar fashion to the way Alabama brings pressure with their outside linebackers.
