    *** OG Deonte Brown Commits to Alabama ***

    I looked & didn't see the commitment of Deonte Brown to Bama on the board, this is figuratively & literally a huge instate pickup for Bama, it's always great to land Blue Chip "Big Uglies" cause you can never have too many talented O-Lineman..Especially instate O-Linemen, cause you always wanna get the best of the best, the Stae has to offer & keep them away from Lee County especially or any other SEC team we may play against..Watch the video in the article I linked & watch Deonte swat away the D Player like he's nothing more than a gnat..LOL

    I`m no O line expert (would like to see a comment from someone who is ), but for a kid his size he looks to me like he`s light on his feet and moves well.

    Re: Four-star OG Deonte Brown Commits To Alabama

    Not a very highly ranked player but I can see in the film that his footwork is really good for a big man. Guards and Centers are notoriously difficult to rate. Most are listed as either 3 or 4 stars and there seems to be little correlation as to which ones turn out to be big time players. I think it's a mixture of footwork, balance, and raw power that makes them great and it's just hard to measure that.

    I remember a time when we wouldn't have considered the #7 recruit at his position "not very highly ranked."

    Agreed. He is a 4* on 247 and I have seen his film before he committed and thought he was a beast with great feet. Great pick-up of an in-state player. Welcome Deonte and RTR!

    He is rated a Top 10 OG in the nation, a Top 10 player in the state of Alabama, and a Top 200 player at any position in the nation per 247 sports. what more do you want?
    per sources close to the coaching staff, they are very high on him and believe his ceiling is of the charts.
    and YES his footwork is very impressive for a huge OL, watch how he knocks guys comparable to him in size off their butts when contact is made.
    great pick up. RTR!!

    Re: Four-star OG Deonte Brown Commits To Alabama

    I agree 100% with ya Bro..I'll take as many 4* OG we can land & the 195 rated best player in the country by 247 Sports any day of the week..Like most O-Linemen, I'm sure he'll RS, and then work himself in & up, the depth chart once the RS comes off..His video is impressive..I love how he plays with a mean streak, and looks for D Players to block, after he swats away or plants the initial D Player he comes in contact with on his backside..You can never have to many good O-Linemen & especially instate players..
