Nick Saban will open his doors to one of the best offensive linemen he’s ever coached on Thursday.

D.J. Fluker, an alum of Foley (Ala.) High School, will work out at Alabama’s Pro Day. Jordan Schultz, an NFL insider for The Score, reported the news. Fluker got selected at No. 11 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. He has spent nine seasons in the league (2013-21) between the Chargers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins, Las Vegas Raiders, and Jacksonville Jaguars. Per Schultz, Fluker has returned to terrific shape at 330 pounds.

Fluker, a former five-star in the 2009 class, played offensive tackle from 2009 to 2012 for the Crimson Tide.

He secured the left side of Alabama’s offensive line, helping running back Mark Ingram become the first player in school history to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy in 2009. Fluker assisted Trent Richardson in getting the school’s single-season rushing record of 1,679 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2011. He was at his best in 2012, guiding Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon to 1,000+ yard rushing seasons. Fluker made first-team All-SEC and first-team All-American in 2012.

He pushed the Tide to three BCS National Championships in 2009, 2011, and 2012.
