As we countdown the days to Alabama's season opener against Middle Tennessee State, which is 87 days away, we highlight an Alabama legend who wore the number corresponding with each day.

Today, we recognize former Alabama tight end Miller Forristall.

Forristall, a three-star recruit from Cartersville, Ga., came to Alabama as a freshman in 2016, where he played in all 15 games.

Forristall suffered a season-ending injury three games into the following season, however was granted a medical redshirt.

Forristall earned the starting job for his redshirt sophomore season, hauling in 15 passes for 167 yards and four touchdowns. Forristall played a significant part in helping sophomore quarterback Mac Jones transition into the starting role after Tua Tagovailoa went down with an injury.

Forristall remained reliable in Alabama's undefeated title run in 2020, catching 23 passes for 253 yards and a score.

The big man went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft but signed with the Tennessee Titans as a UDFA. Forristall was ultimately waived on September 3, 2021.

Forristall signed to the Browns' practice squad in September 2021, bouncing between the active roster and the practice squad.

Forristall is currently on a futures/reserves contract with the New Orleans Saints.
