Alabama football will have at least one freshman that will get a lot of playing time.

Justice Haynes, a five-star running back, is nothing short of impressive. The native Georgian has Crimson Tide fans in awe of him after spring practice. Nick Saban could not stop talking positively about Haynes and he may have won the Dixie Howell Memorial Award for Most Valuable Player of the A-Day Game if not for Malachi Moore’s performance. Haynes totaled three touchdowns, including a 6-yard touchdown reception. He had 7,574 rushing yards and 95 touchdowns across four years at Buford High School.

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound has been in the lab all offseason to prepare himself to dominate his first year.

Haynes has trained his upper and lower body to prevent injuries while working on speed, explosiveness, and agility drills. 

He has a chance to be the No. 1 running back in Alabama’s rotation or get a lot of time behind Jase McClellan. No matter what happens, Haynes is an impressive specimen. Crimson Tide fans cannot wait to see him have success in the fall.
