Crimson Tide Commit, Kobe Prentice, Dominant in Senior Season
While it's easy to get swept up in the big-time names that typically make up Crimson Tide recruiting classes, every single year sees certain prospects tend to fly under the radar and become stars.
2022 is no different, and Kobe Prentice is one of those prospects.
Prentice, a wide receiver hailing from Calera High School in central Alabama, decommitted from Maryland in favor of the Tide in July and entered his senior season as a three-star wideout, ready to prove himself among other highly touted Tide commitments.
In his senior season, the 5-foot-10, 171 lb. speedster made sure to show exactly why Alabama chose him, absolutely torching opposing defenses to the tune of 1,229 yards and 17 touchdowns and earning a four-star rating.
Possessing a unique blend of speed and physicality, Prentice is a nightmare for defenses to try and defend. He can easily take the top off of defenses by blowing by defenders on deep routes, but his open field running ability is where he truly shines.
Despite an already loaded wide receiver room for next season, the likely departure of names like Jameson Williams and John Metchie will leave holes that need to be filled in the offense.
While several players have already proven themselves as names to watch out for, Prentice is one that should certainly be on the radar.
Alabama currently has the second ranked recruiting class in the 2022 cycle behind Georgia, per 247Sports, and features three five-star athletes and 13 four-stars. With another potential five-star commitment on the horizon from recent USC decommit, Domani Jackson, the Tide look poised to lock up another top ranked class.
