I think that was more a function of our OL than our RB's. We would run in short yardage with Jacobs in 2019, but the line would make holes
I was talking about literal big-bodied backs like Lacy, Henry, Bo, Najee and BRob. We don’t have anyone like that on the roster anymore. Not saying we don’t have quality backs. It just seems that we’ve moved away from recruiting that type of back.

More to the story? It does seem odd……… good luck to him wherever he goes
Strange situation.But then again,maybe not.Especially at Alabama,in which we follow and see these things and know about them when they happen...I.E...Kamara,Anoma,Alfano..etc....We see very talented kids who have some life issues,dont adjust at all to being away,or just dont fit in for whatever reason.Or suffer a terrible injury.Whatever it is.It happens everywhere. I wish the best for the young man wherever he lands and finds himself as a football player.Or even not as a player.

As far as The Tide goes in speaking of this young man football-wise?..They wont miss him because they really never had him.So playing the "What if?"or "What could have been?" game doesnt serve any purpose.Alabama will be just fine and I am sure that everyone is rooting for Camar to be the same.

Something strange about his season . He was week to week in October. Never saw the practice field , now he is not in school. I was really excited to see him suit up in Crimson.
I think it is telling that so far he has “withdrawn from classes” and not jumped to the portal. That isn’t to say he won’t be in the portal this afternoon, or tomorrow or the next day.

Sometimes you get to place or a situation and you realize “it just isn’t for you”. You attempt to “gut it out”, but you never are really in a good spot mentally, emotionally and sometimes physically.

Maybe the young man needs to sort out some things. Maybe Tuscaloosa isn’t right for him. Or maybe even college isn’t right for him. Certainly I had high hopes of seeing him Crimson on Saturdays like many. But I have high hopes for Camar as young man growing into adulthood, and I hope he finds whatever it is he looking for or may be needing.

OK :ROFLMAO: Who says Kendrick Law is going to be a RB?
His 247 recruiting profile mentions it.

" Put together like a running back or safety with capability to play receiver or multiple spots in the defensive back seven. Flashes springy athleticism that translates to off-the-ground bounce as a pass catcher and lateral twitch as a ball carrier. Shows excellent stop-start ability and burst out of redirection. Good top-end field speed supported by times on the track. Shows encouraging hands-catching and high-pointing abilities considering offensive snaps were split between the backfield and receiver. Finishes runs as a back and shows ability to string together moves at the second level. "

that's why I mentioned on one of the other threads that there would be some shifting around with a lot of guys as they get onto campus and the staff really gets to work with them to see where the best project. There's 4-5 guys between the ATH, WR and RB signees who will get a lot of looks at a lot of different positions.

Yep! I agree with that.And Law may very well be a RB all the way through.Or he may be an elite Slot Receiver.Or he may not be good enough to play.Hard to say right now for sure.But I like his measurables.I am just hoping that guys like Leary,Hall,and JoJo really begin to emerge and not give their Coaches any choice but to put them out there.Same with the rookie skill guys. Should be all-out,major competition,this winter,spring,and summer. And I hope up front on both sides of the ball also.The elite guys will emerge at the top of the water,and I hope their best is brought out of them.

Since he has withdrawn from classes, would he even need to use the portal?

It seems there is more to the story, I am just not sure of all the details. I did read on another board that SMU is a place he is looking at. I hope he recovers 100 percent and does well. I was looking forward to watching him at Bama after all the hype he had.

He would if he wants to play football somewhere else. The portal is still required to switch schools if he has signed with a school.

If he just wants to be a student - nope.

Bama ain’t for everyone and that’s fine. You gotta want “it” because no one else around here is just going to lay down for you. Best of luck CW.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Gibbs can bring this offense. Also hoping for a healthier season!!!!

Don't see how Gibbs isn't #1 from the outset.

Sanders needs to work on getting back to his preinjury self if thats possible.

Williams and McClellan...no idea how their recoveries are coming.

Wheaton is gone.

So I'd guess unless Sanders can heal...a freshman RB will work into the rotation at 2 or 3.

sanders had some good runs against a great Georgia d this year. I don’t think he’ll ever be a game breaker but I dunno if he would’ve even before the injury. I think he’ll be a solid number 2. I would be shocked if a fr rb would eclipse him before the halfway mark. Especially when you consider sanders can execute in pass blocking.

I was too, but I've given up on thinking any super-hyped RB is ever going to come in and blow everybody away on day one. Ingram didn't do it. Richardson didn't do it. Neither did Yeldon, Henry, Damien Harris, Najee Harris, Sanders or Wheaton, most of whom were 5-stars.
