Alabama has been paving its way to a promising future with the 2023 recruiting class, which is ranked No. 1 in the entire country, according to 247Sports’ recruiting rankings.
Defensive line coach Freddie Roach has been pushing to land several commitments along the defensive front. One of those players is four-star defensive lineman Jordan Renaud. The Texas native narrowed his list down to two schools on Monday: Oklahoma and Alabama.
Last season, he recorded 66 tackles, eight tackles for loss and two sacks for Tyler Legacy High School in Tyler, Texas. He has good size for playing either the edge rusher position or defensive end at the collegiate level. The Crimson Tide would be more apt to play him as an edge rusher. Renaud is set to announce his commitment on September 19.
In an interview with On3’s Hayes Fawcett, here is what Renaud had to say about the Crimson Tide:
“I feel that Alabama has always been a perennial powerhouse,” Renaud said. “As far as development goes, they have some of the best development in the country. Me and coach Roach have a great relationship. When I went on my visit there, it was very eye opening to what Alabama really is, and what they do for their players.”
