Two Crimson Tide Commits Already Winning Titles
High School football wrapped up in Alabama this week with the Super 7 Football Championships taking place at all-new Protective Life Stadium in Birmingham, AL. From 1A to 7A, some of the state's best athletes left it all on the field for their teams in the final games of the year.
For two Crimson Tide commits, the final game of the year saw them take home a state title and get a jumpstart on what the standard will be at Alabama. Jeremiah Alexander and Trequon Fegans helped the Thompson Warriors take home the 7A state title, defeating the Red Devils of Central Phenix City, 38-22.
The win marked the third state title in a row for Thompson and the ninth for Mark Freeman as a head coach.
Alexander, a five-star edge rusher, was a starter on the last three championship teams for the Warriors and finished his final game with a tackle, a sack and a tackle for loss. Ranked as the number one edge rusher in his class by 247Sports, Alexander has elite pass rush skills, utilizing a combination of his big frame with excellent speed off the edge.
Fegans transferred to Thompson only for his senior season, but is also a winner of multiple state championships, taking home the 6A title as a member of the Oxford Yellow Jackets in 2019. In his final high school game, Fegans was outstanding for the Warriors, leading the team in tackles with seven and hauling in a fourth quarter interception.
Ranked as the eleventh cornerback in the nation, Fegans originally committed to Miami in July, but opted for the Crimson Tide after an unofficial visit in October. Fegans has a solid build, standing at 6-foot-2, 181 lbs., and is extremely physical with receivers, frequently displaying his excellent ball skills.
Alabama currently holds the second ranked recruiting class in the nation, per 247Sports, and sits just barely behind Georgia. With the coaching carousel in full effect, many prospects are flipping their commits and changing their minds about where they want to play.
Will Alabama be able to capitalize and close out 2022 with the first ranked class?
