Could Alabama football have its best defense under Nick Saban since 2016?
One player said the expectations for this group are “through the roof.”
Brian Branch, a junior defensive back for the Crimson Tide, came on In My Own Words with Stephen M. Smith of Touchdown Alabama Magazine on Monday. He spoke on his NIL partnership with The Player’s Lounge with former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, and how excited he is to interact more with fans. The best part of the conversation with Branch is he spoke about the expectations for the Alabama defense. The Tide had some inconsistent moments in 2021, but it played its best late in the year.
Branch said the entire defense has chemistry.
“We know where each player is going to be on the field,” Branch said. “It’s crazy, but we expect big things this year. If we play our cards right, I believe we have a chance to be the best defense to ever come through Alabama.”
Branch ended last year with 55 tackles, five tackles for loss, a sack, nine pass breakups, a quarterback hurry, and a fumble recovery. He is talking big this season, and the Crimson Tide fans are ready to see a fearsome defense return.
