Alabama head coach Nick Saban may have his ‘hateful competitors’ in the 2023 recruiting class.
The group of freshmen coming in for the Crimson Tide wants to reestablish the culture. They desire to be dominant, physical, tough, and respected in college football. Alabama has 23 verbal commitments for the class, including five 5-star athletes.
It has an incoming offensive line class filled with players that want to run the ball.
Miles McVay, a native of East St. Louis, Mo., brings brute strength and physicality. The 6-foot-7, 345-pounder can be a devastating guard or tackle for any defensive player to get through. He made an appearance on The Bama Standard on Tuesday and gave the panel a message that should excite every Alabama fan. McVay spoke about the leadership he will bring to the team as a young player, but he also has the ‘dog’ mentality. He looks forward to enrolling at the University of Alabama this month and participating in bowl prep. McVay has his eyes on one player he wants to challenge if he gets the opportunity in practice.
“With it being bowl week, I am hoping that I can get my shot at Will (Anderson),” McVay said. “I want Will because he’s going to be gone next year, and then I will have Dallas Turner the other times.”
McVay has nothing but respect for Alabama’s veteran linebackers, but he welcomes the challenge of Anderson and Turner.
Tide fans want to see the offensive line return to a level of meanness against the competition, and McVay is someone who can do it.
