The class of 2021 for Alabama football just got that much stronger this evening as Kendrick Blackshire(elite middle linebacker out of Texas) has just announced his commitment to Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide. Kendrick makes commitment #12 for 2021 for Alabama.
Blackshire is one of the most elite ILB prospects in the United States. The 247Sports Composite Rankings have him tabbed as the #7 ILB nationally. Even with his large and often intimidating size, he moves and covers like a smaller, quicker ILB. He has everything Coach Saban looks for in an alpha-type inside linebacker, and will continue the storied history of the position with the Crimson Tide.
There is a lot of excitement around the Tide program right now recruiting wise as evidenced by the recent tweets from Bama staffers, and for good reason. Team Tide Talk will be watching it all unfold this week and beyond, and bringing you all the latest news and analysis.
