Tide Commit Walter Bob to Attend Junior College
Walter Bob, a four-star Crimson Tide commitment, will choose to attend Hutchinson Community College instead of the University of Alabama this fall. Bob’s high school coach Matt McCullough told The Daily Advertiser that he is attending junior college for academic reasons and the Crimson Tide have been aware since his commitment.
Bob has been committed to the Crimson Tide since early February and is the No.38 defensive end in the nation as well as a top 15 recruit in the state of Louisiana, per 247Sports.
Hutchison Community College was last year's NJCAA National Champions and finished 1st in their division at 8-0. The Blue Dragons D-Line is very young, featuring mostly freshmen and sophomores, and Bob should fit right in.
Nadame Tucker, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound sophomore out of New York, was one of the most productive on the team and finished with 50 tackles and 12 sacks last season. Bob will have to compete for a starting job, but has a good chance to win one before the season starts.
Watching Bob play, he shows he shows his dominance on the field with a quick step off the ball and tends to win most of his matchups with physical strength. His ability to win from the nose guard or defensive end position is what makes him one of the top prospects coming out of Louisiana. Bob shows the ability to win his matchups anywhere he's lined up and has enough talent and strength to be a problem for any opposing offense.
Alabama fans will need to keep Bob's name in mind in the upcoming years as he will likely continue to impress in junior college and could make his transition to the Crimson Tide in the future.
