In nearly every offseason, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is tasked not just with replacing the talented players who leave for the NFL Draft, but also assistant coaches who leave to take other coaching jobs. The end of the 2021 season proved to be no different.
According to Tim Watts of BamaOnline and Matt Zenitz of AL.com the Crimson Tide has secured the commitment of Robert Woodyard. Woodyard is an inside linebacker out of Williamson High School in Mobile, Alabama. 247Sports ranks Woodyard as a four-star prospect, the second rated inside linebacker in the nation, the fifth overall recruit in the state of Alabama and the 58th overall recruit in the 2022 recruiting class. He becomes the second player committed to the Tide in the 2022 recruiting cycle.
