    Yup, can block and had great hands.

    IIRC, D. Henry will be an early enrollee. That should help him immensely as far as learning the playbook and picking up blocking techniques. (Don't know if he has good hands or not - anyone know?) Regardless, it'll be hard keeping him on the bench next year, IMO.

    Re: 2013 Running back Depth for Alabama

    Lot of depth as it looks right now, but we've got a long way to go. Two of those kids are coming back from major knee injuries, and the harsh realities of the tailback position are such that in a typical year you can expect to lose somewhere between one and three players either for the entire year due to injuries, or at least for a fairly significant portion of it with a performance-hampering injury (high ankle sprains, MCL sprains, turf toe, etc).

    We'll see how it plays out, but frankly I don't see either Tenpenny or Henry redshirting if they are healthy. They may get carries like Drake got this year, but I don't think those guys will be on the scout team come next November.

    With Henry looking to enroll early, he looks like a pretty solid bet to play as a true freshman.
