Justin's Recruiting Bites|Recruit Rankings
Jerome Bettis Jr. visited Alabama football last weekend in midst of the 2025 prospect’s recruitment starting to grow.
Bettis is a sophomore at Woodward Academy in Georgia, and he is the son of NFL Hall of Famer, Jerome Bettis.
The Georgia product’s recruitment got rolling in January when the Arkansas Razorbacks offered him. His offer total has grown to seven since then with recent offers from Missouri, UAB and Marshall.
Alabama football has shown interest in the rising prospect. The Tide hosted him for its junior day Saturday. Bettis had some great things to say about Alabama after his visit.
“They are obviously a great program,” Bettis told Touchdown Alabama. “I would say they are probably the most accomplished program in recent years, and that is all due to their discipline. The coaches do an amazing job keeping their players focused up there, and I think that is the main reason for their success.”
Bettis currently stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 190 pounds. He is a long wideout, who has advanced route-running abilities for a sophomore. The 2025 recruit believes his size and his ability to use it to his advantage are among his biggest strengths at the moment.
“I think the biggest thing that stands out on paper is my height,” said Bettis. “Being around 6-foot-3 with around a 75-inch wingspan gives me a large catch radius and the ability to bring in 50/50 balls. I also think my knowledge of the game and how I use it in my route running is another thing that attributes to my success.”
