Casey Poe remains locked in with the Alabama Crimson Tide as he looks to help Lindale High School make a strong push in the playoff.
Poe is a 2024 four-star offensive lineman, who is committed to Alabama. The senior feels there is no doubt about the strength of his commitment.
“It’s rock solid,” Poe told Touchdown Alabama. “That’s my home. That’s a place where I want to be. We’re full steam ahead. I’m talking here and there with a couple of guys trying to get them to get on board. But I’m excited. I’m fired up. I’m a hundred percent committed.”
Poe has visited Alabama twice this season, and he has enjoyed every visit and getting an opportunity to enjoy the gameday atmosphere in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“I’ve always been a fan of Tuscaloosa,” Poe said. “I’ve always been a fan of Alabama since I was a kid. It’s different once you are family there, just being there and knowing that I’m part of that family and then getting to see all the fans jam-packed in that stadium. I’m going to the LSU game, so it is going to be my third game of the season. But it’s been amazing. The fans been great. The atmosphere has been even better. Against Tennessee, I know for sure it was the loudest stadium I’ve ever been in my life. I couldn’t even hear myself think. I could feel the bleachers shaking. I can feel the stadium rocking. It’s a great atmosphere. It’s a great place to be.”
The Alabama pledge stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 290 pounds. He lined up at left tackle for Lindale at the moment, and he has used his senior season to become a better pass protector.
“My pass pro has definitely improved,” said Poe. “That’s something that I really wanted to work on in the off-season because last year I wasn’t awful at, by any means, but it just wasn’t where I wanted to be. I feel like this year I’ve really been able to kind of grow and get better in that aspect. So, I was proud of it. I put my head down, went to work. We have great coaches at Lindale, and they were able to get me a lot better.”
