Fort Payne, Ala. (WHNT) – Alabama has to replace three of its starting offensive linemen. It might be the most daunting project this offseason for coach Nick Saban.
While in Fort Payne for his annual Crimson Caravan, Saban addressed the reconstruction project. He said one of the potential key pieces is former Huntsville High star Grant Hill.
“Grant is a really good player he’s a really good athlete,” said Nick Saban, Alabama head coach. “He threw the shot-put about as far as anyone ever in the state of Alabama so that tells you about lower body explosion. He’s tough and he’s smart and a great person and great family…the type of guy we feel like we can win with and think he can add quality depth to the offensive line right off the bat.”
Grant played tackle at Huntsville High but is projected to play guard in Tuscaloosa.
