Alabama has a defensive back that is trying to recapture the essence from his freshman season.

Malachi Moore, a senior, was incredible in 2020 as a four-star player.

He earned Freshman All-SEC and Freshman All-American honors, totaling 44 tackles, four tackles for loss, six pass breakups, two quarterback hurries, a forced fumble, and a fumble return for a touchdown. Moore assisted the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship and a College Football Playoff National Championship. The 6-foot, 198-pounder encountered injuries, but Moore is healthy now.

Moore totaled nine tackles, three tackles for loss, and three sacks. He is looked at as one of the leaders in Alabama’s defensive secondary as he has a chance to secure a first-round draft status. As a Trussville (Ala.) native, Moore is working tirelessly with former Tide standout Justin Woodall to position himself to help the Tide win another CFP National Championship in the fall.

He could end up becoming one of two starting safeties for Alabama football.
