Alabama Lands Commitment From Transfer Tight End
Alabama picked up a commitment from a top transfer portal target on Tuesday in C.J. Dippre, a standout tight end from the University of Maryland. Dippre chose the Crimson Tide over Ohio State.
Dipree visitied Ohio State in an official capacity on December 18. Five days later, InsideMDSports author Jeff Ermann crystal balled Dippre to Alabama.
Dippre spent two years in College Park under Mike Locksley, a former Alabama offensive coordinator who helped author the famous "2nd and 26" national championship win. Under Locksley's tutelage, Dippre hauled in 33 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns with the bulk of his targets coming this past season.
Dippre, a native of Jermyn, Penn., stands at 6'5" and 260 pounds, similar to Cameron Latu. He also possesses elite speed and athleticism for the position he plays and the capability of hurdling defenders in the open field ala Najee Harris.
Dippre arrives in Tuscaloosa with two full years of eligibility remaining. He is the only transfer portal player to commit to the Crimson Tide so far.
