Alabama football has thirteen early enrollees or mid-year players to participate in spring practice.

The perks of enrolling early at the University of Alabama is one gets an opportunity to learn the coaching staff, players, culture, and playbook before those arriving in the summer. In the Nick Saban era, Crimson Tide fans have seen several spring enrollees become starters or marquee contributors in the fall as freshmen. It will be interesting to see which athletes of the 13 individuals shall impress coaches, teammates, and fans for a chance at big playing time.

I see seven enrollees in a position to start or push for playing time. They are listed below.

Tyler Booker, Offensive Lineman

Tyler Booker has the best opportunity to earn a starting spot.

Alabama’s offensive line suffered from inconsistent effort in 2021, and it graduates Evan Neal and Chris Owens to the next level.

Tommy Brown transferred from the Crimson Tide to the University of Colorado. Eric Wolford replaces Doug Marrone as offensive line coach, and he returns a style of physicality that Tide fans want to see. Booker, a native Floridian, was a versatile lineman and a five-star prospect from IMG Academy.
