Alabama Football Recruiting: Tyren Jones Commits To Tide

Nick Saban and Alabama football recruiting continue to roll as the Tide picked up its eight commitment of the 2013 class in running back Tyren Jones. Out of Georgia, Jones is only 5'8" and 192 pounds, leaving many to believe he is a scat back. But that's not the case according to Roll Bama Roll:

Jones uses the short frame to his advantage and runs with both speed and power, proving to be a very effective interior runner at Walton High in a pro-style offense. He should bulk up when he gets to Tuscaloosa, but in terms of a physical build he essentially has the frame that Mark Ingram did this time four years ago, and much like Ingram, Jones projects to a be a physical runner who uses the low center of gravity and the fluidity of hip movement to his advantage. A second coming of Terry Grant this is not.
