The University of Alabama football team held practice number one of fall camp 2020 today. Even with no media availability, TTS gives you what we’ve got.
The long wait for Alabama football fans is finally over. Today, marked the start of the 2020 season for Coach Nick Saban and his Alabama Crimson Tide. Here’s what we are hearing out of fall camp practice number one. Alabama will hold 25 camp practices prior to shifting it’s focus to Missouri the week of September 21.
Alabama fans should expect returning veterans to be at the front of the line in individual drills, as this is the norm for Alabama football in a “camp-opening” situation. Coach Nick Saban expects his older, more experienced players to lead by example early on. Guys like Moses, Jones, Leatherwood, Dickerson, Smitty, Mathis, Davis, Allen, and Surtain Jr. will definitely be leaned upon early on, but expect the talented newcomers for the Tide to be hungry and press early. The University of Alabama Media Department provided media with some B-roll footage of today’s practice.
Some of the early standouts from today’s first practice include:
-Cameron Latu really looking the part at TE
-Ishmael Sophsher looks to be in incredible shape. Looks like a completely different prospect.
-Mac Jones lead the line at QB followed by Paul Tyson and Bryce Young
-Ben Davis and Chris Allen led the way at OLB
-Jahleel Billingsley, who played TE last season, has gotten some looks flexed out at WR
We will update with more information as we receive it.
