Alabama has a redshirt freshman who is making a push to start at cornerback.

Earl Little II, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., put in work during spring break to prepare himself for spring practice.

He arrived in the 2022 signing class as a four-star from American Heritage High School. His father, Earl Little Sr., and Patrick Surtain coached him in high school. The 6-foot-1, 186-pounder played in three games last year, but he missed half of the season because of an injury. Little has an opportunity to become a starter in the Crimson Tide’s secondary. He possesses the traits to be an elite defender and will push Terrion Arnold for the boundary corner position across from Kool-Aid McKinstry.

Little’s father posted a video to Twitter of his son training hard over spring break. He worked on backpedaling, breaking on the ball, and speed drills. If Little wins the job at cornerback, Alabama would have a lot of versatile depth in its secondary.

It will be interesting to watch his development going forward.
