Alabama football entertained a visitor on Saturday that could give its wide receiver room a boost.

Jermaine Burton, a California native, is a veteran player in the Southeastern Conference.

He spent two years at the University of Georgia, catching 53 passes for 901 yards and eight touchdowns. Burton posted 26 receptions for 497 yards receiving and five scores in 2021.

He finished second in receiving for the Bulldogs, helping the team to its first national championship in over 40 years.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder would bring valuable experience to a young receiver room.

Burton is an original member of the Defensive Back Assassins (DBA) with Traeshon Holden.

Both players are from California, and Holden reached out to Burton after he announced his decision to transfer on social media.

Could we see a reunion for these two?

It is possible, especially if Burton commits to Alabama. Hopefully, his unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa went well.
