Nick Saban is still having fun in the NCAA transfer portal.

Reports have swirled on social media that he has found a tight end for the Crimson Tide. Miles Kitselman is the name that has reportedly committed to Alabama from Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder runs a 4.75 in the 40-yard dash, per his Twitter profile. According to his hudl film, Kitselman is a strong blocker, possesses a few routes, and can be a receiving threat.

Kitselman has lined up as an H-back and inline blocking tight end.

He is expected to join the Tide in Summer I classes as the newest member for the 2022 class.

Coach Saban told reporters in spring practice that tight end was a position of need for Alabama.

The team does not have experience behind Cameron Latu, but the addition of Kitselman helps. Alabama will develop Robbie Ouzts, Elijah Brown, Amari Niblack, and Danny Lewis, but having Kitselman is huge for the Tide.
