We have made it to July and SEC Football Media Days are coming soon.
The University of Alabama looks to return to the College Football Playoff in the fall and win a national championship. Nick Saban has several talented players, but which ones will emerge as the most impactful?
The staff at Touchdown Alabama Magazine will spotlight numerous players for the upcoming season.
After looking at Danny Lewis, Miles Kitselman is fourth in our tight end breakdowns for Alabama.

Previous School: Hutchinson Community College
Position: Tight End
Size: 6-5/250 pounds

Miles Kitselman fits the profile of former Alabama tight ends early in the Nick Saban era.
They had the potential to become good pass catches, but they were primarily known as blocking tight ends.
Kitselman loves doing the dirty work, in fact, he was elite at it for Hutchinson Community College. He started to show a couple of signs in spring practice at junior college of him possibly becoming a receiving tight end. Kitselman totaled two catches for 18 yards last season for Alabama, but he had a good spring game with three receptions for 36 yards. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder is a physical blocker, but the Crimson Tide needs to see what it has in him as a receiving option. Kitselman is not one of these modern-day tight ends with blazing speed; however, he can get open and move the chains if he is needed to perform the role.
