The Crimson Tide will bring two familiar names to Hoover to talk about the defending national champions. Junior wide receiver John Metchie III will represent the Alabama offensive side of the football while senior defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis will represent the defense.
The “Road to 19” is officially here. Alabama announced earlier this week that the defending-champion Crimson Tide will start spring practices on Friday, March 19. After 15 total practices, the work of the football team will culminate in Bryant-Denny Stadium for “A-Day” on Saturday, April 17.
Through six games this season Metchie has hauled in 24 receptions for 517 yards and three touchdowns. Against Tennessee after Waddle went down with his injury Metchie had 7 receptions for 151 yards. He will assume No. 2 receiving duties for the Crimson Tide and is ready to make a name for himself and his country.
