Crimson Tide send strong message with commitment of 340-lb prospect
You can't accuse the Alabama Crimson Tide of not looking ahead, as they have landed their third commitment for 2017 with the pledge of offensive lineman Netori Johnson of Ellenwood, Georgia.
Johnson is rated as a four-star prospect, most likely suited to play guard at the collegiate level. At six-foot-five and 340-pounds, Johnson already possesses the size to play in the SEC, imagine if he can possibly get any bigger following the two seasons he has yet to play in high school.
Whether Johnson can come in and be the next Chance Warmack or not, it appears the Tide won't be shifting away from their physical brand of rushing the football anytime soon.
By pursuing giant linemen like Johnson, Alabama is sending a strong message to the rest of the league. If you want to beat us, you'll have to stop us on the ground. Oh and our running back weights 240-pounds and is faster than anyone in your secondary. Good luck with that.
