Demouy Kennedy Signs with Alabama
Demouy Kennedy signed his letter of intent to join the Alabama Crimson Tide today. December 18 is the first day high school seniors can officially sign with their new college programs. Kennedy is a four star inside linebacker out of Theodore High School in Theodore, Alabama. Kennedy is the 34th overall prospect in the country and the number one prospect in Alabama according to 247sports.
Kennedy committed to Auburn in July of 2018 but flipped his commitment to the Tide in June of 2019. Coach Nick Saban was able to sway the young linebacker by showing off a table filled with championship rings.
"I liked when (Saban) said, 'Would you rather gamble on this table (pointing to the ring table) or the other table?' I said, 'I'm gambling on the ring table,’” Kennedy said.
Theodore High School coach Eric Collier called Kennedy “probably the best athlete I’ve coached,” quite a statement when comparing Kennedy to former Theodore and Crimson Tide standout C.J. Mosley. In his senior season he recorded 73 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and one defensive touchdown. He also ran the football for 273 yards and five touchdowns. Kennedy was primarily recruited to Alabama by Sal Sunseri and Pete Golding.
Kennedy was named to the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game and also selected to the Under Armour All-American Game. In the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game, Kennedy played outside linebacker and recorded two tackles. The Under Armour All-American Game will be January 2, 2020. Kennedy will enroll at Alabama after that game and take part in the spring semester.
