TUSCALOOSA, AL – Head coach Greg Goff and his staff hosted their first Scout Day at The University of Alabama on Wednesday afternoon. The event was a success with Major League scouts from numerous organizations attending the event.
"I was really pleased that so many scouts showed up to watch our guys showcase their talents," said Goff of the event. "All of our players have been giving maximum effort this fall, and I believe the work they have put in was clearly on display in front of the people who will help in determining their professional futures. I want to thank all the scouts that came out and all the people involved in making the day a success."
