A look at the RB position moving forward

Since we have a few weeks to kill before we really dig into analysis of ND-Bama, I thought an off-topic post may be appropriate. I've seen some chatter around here talking about what the RB...

Derrick Henry newest Bama commit

On a live broadcast on ESPNU, 4 star RB Derrick Henry, from Yulee, FL, chose the Bama hat over UT and UGA. Henry was previously committed to UGA before decommiting and reviewing his options for a few months. Last week Henry amassed over 500 yards on the ground with 6 TDs, in one game. At 6-3, 245, some have speculated that a change in position will be in the cards for Henry at the college level, but Henry affirmed with his annoucement that it's "running back or nothing" for him. In leiu of a youtube video, I'll just give you this nugget: Yulee high plays Glades Day tonight at 8 pm eastern on ESPNU. This will give all the Bama fans a chance to scout Henry, as well as future Florida running back Kelvin Taylor, son of long time NFL back Fred Taylor and no. 1 RB recruit in the nation for 2013. Roll Tide, and welcome to the club Derrick!

Deon Johnson arrested again

Well any sympathy for this kid after the previous arrest is sure to cease at this point. Johnson, 4 star WR and senior from Spanish Fort, was arrested on charges of first degree rape. Many will remember the name from him being arrested on a second degree rape charge about a month ago. This incident is reportedly unrelated. Any news regarding his scholarship offer from UA has yet to surface.

Bama commit arrested (updated)

Details are still emerging, but Deon Johnson, 4 star WR from Spanish Fort was arrested on charges of rape and sodomy. Many will recognize the name from the nationally televised game this past weekend between Spanish Fort and Daphne, in which Johnson had a long touchdown. Sad news all around, but thoughts and prayers certainly need to be directed to the victim. If the reports are true, Johnson can wave bye bye to the Alabama offer as well as any other major program. *update: As others have noted, this is a second degree rape charge, meaning in this case that this is consensual intercourse with a 16 year old. This information certainly lessens the immediate shock of the news, but still is illegal for a reason. Any ramifications regarding his scholarship offer is and should be yet to be determined.


why we don't want David Wilson

I'm all for drafting a running back this year, especially in the first. Having two picks late round 1 gives us a great opportunity to get a top RB while not ignoring another position of need. David...
