Chuck McDonald III earned an offer from Alabama Tuesday after impressing the Crimson Tide.
McDonald is a sophomore at Mater Dei High School in California. He holds 13 D1 offers after picking up an offer from the Crimson Tide.
Alabama’s wide receiver coach Holmon Wiggins was in California when McDonald caught his eye.
“After the winter college showcase at my school, coach Wiggins from Alabama called me over, and we had a brief conversation before he gave me the offer,” said McDonald. “It is a great program. One of the best in the country.”
McDonald had high remarks for Nick Saban after earning an offer from the Tide.
“He is a great coach, a legend,” said McDonald.
Alabama is continuing to go after cornerbacks with great length. At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, McDonald fits the bill. He breaks on the ball with good closing speed and can make tackles close to the line of scrimmage with his anticipation skills. The new Alabama target wants to improve in those areas and perfect his coverage technique.
“I feel I play press man well because of my length and my speed,” said McDonald. “I need to improve on getting smoother on opening my hips and breaking faster on shorter routes.”
