  The Houston Texans selected Alabama wide receiver John Metchie III with the 44th pick in the NFL Draft on Friday night. On Tuesday night, the British Columbia Lions chose Metchie with the 59th pick in the CFL Draft. The nine Canadian Football League teams chose 74 players from Canadian college programs and Canadian players in U.S. college programs during the eight-round draft, starting with Syracuse linebacker Tyrell Richards.

Metchie's hometown is Brampton, Ontario. After the 2020 and 2021 seasons, Metchie was awarded the Jon Cornish Trophy, which is presented annually to the outstanding Canadian player in NCAA football. This year, he was the first to win the award by unanimous vote. Metchie joined Nathan Rourke as the only two-time winners of the trophy. Rourke is a quarterback for the team that drafted Metchie on Tuesday night. By drafting Metchie, British Columbia became the holder of his CFL rights. - Birmingham News

  Almost three months after tearing his ACL in the SEC championship game, former Alabama wide receiver John Metchie said Wednesday is recovery is on schedule. "Around June, in June, I should be cleared, I should be good to go," he said at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. "Just ready to play football and run some routes." Metchie was included as a late first-round pick in some mock drafts before his injury but now is more frequently projected as a second-round pick in April's draft.

But in interviewing with NFL teams this week, Metchie has not sensed his draft stock slipping. "I don't really get that sense from them," he said. "I don't really get much concern for my injury. Everything checks off. Everything is going well. Rehab's going well, them looking at my knee is going well. "My recovery is going really well. All the doctors say it's going really well, so I shouldn't have any issues there at all." Metchie will not participate in drills this week at the combine or at Alabama's pro day later this month. That means his 40-yard dash time will remain a projection to teams that evaluate him. "They definitely ask about it," he said. "They think I would have ran a 4.4 [seconds], or low 4.4s, but it's definitely something we need to move on from here." - Birmingham News

  John Metchie caught a scoring pass from Bryce Young in the fourth overtime to give No. 3 Alabama a 24-22 comeback victory over rival Auburn on Saturday, rescuing the Crimson Tide's national title hopes. It was the first overtime in the Iron Bowl. Freshman Kool-Aid McKinstry tipped away T.J. Finley's pass in the final OT and Young hit Metchie just as he did in the previous one. Alabama (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) moves on to face No. 1 Georgia in the league championship game with its College Football Playoff hopes on the line. The Tigers (6-6, 3-5) dropped their fourth straight game after smothering Young and the Tide's prolific offense most of the way. Young capped a 97-yard drive with a 28-yard touchdown to freshman Ja'Corey Brooks - his third catch and first touchdown this season - with 24 seconds left in regulation.

Young converted a fourth-and-7 to Jahleel Billingsley, followed by two incompletions under pressure for an offense that had been held in check for 59 minutes. The teams traded touchdowns and field goals in the first overtime and both delivered scoring passes after lining up from the 3. The Tigers had been trying to win their third straight Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and nearly pulled it off. Alabama was without two of its top offensive players in the overtime periods. Tailback Brian Robinson was on the sideline with an apparent leg injury sustained earlier in the game. Star receiver Jameson Williams was ejected for targeting on punt coverage in the first half. Bottled up most of the game, Young finished 25 of 51 for 317 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. Metchie caught 13 passes for 150 passes. - Alabama/AP College Football

  When Alabama football receiver Jaylen Waddle suffered an injury last season, then-sophomore John Metchie III was forced to step up and into one of the main receiving slots for the Crimson Tide. Metchie played alongside Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith and was able to learn off his technique, especially as far as "minor little details," things only receivers work on or really notice, Metchie III said at 2021 SEC Media Days on Wednesday. But the most valuable takeaways, he said, came from just being Smith's teammate and observing him off the field. "Biggest thing was just worth ethic, bringing in your best self day in and day out and just being consistent," Metchie III said.

Metchie III exploded into the national college football scene after he delivered a standout performance against Texas A&M last season. With Waddle's injury expanding his role, Metchie totaled 916 yards and six touchdowns on 55 catches. Metchie III continues to take after Smith and stress the importance of his mindset. He said part of why he is such a solid and tough receiver is his competitiveness and ability to put his mind to something and do it. - Montgomery Advertiser

  Alabama wide receiver John Metchie III and defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis will represent the Crimson Tide at SEC Media Days. Mathis, a senior, and Metchie, a junior, will join coach Nick Saban on July 21 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham-Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover. Metchie caught 55 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns in 2020. Mathis finished 2020 with 31 total tackles, three passes defensed, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. - Montgomery Advertiser

  Sending 10 players to the NFL Draft is usually not a recipe for an encore. In Alabama's case, the defending SEC and national champion just might defy the odds. The Crimson Tide placed nine players on the 75th Annual AL.com Spring Football All-SEC team chosen by the league's 14 football information directors. The offense that had five players taken in the first round of the draft - wide receivers Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith, quarterback Mac Jones, running back Najee Harris and tackle Alex Leatherwood - put three on the All-SEC first team. They were wide receiver John Metchie III, guard Emil Ekiyor and tackle Evan Neal. Texas A&M also had three named to the first team - tight end Jalen Wydermeyer, guard Kenyon Green and running back Isaiah Spiller. - Birmingham News

  Alabama football has earned yet another accolade from the 2020 undefeated championship season. Junior receiver John Metchie III has received the Jon Cornish Trophy, given to the top Canadian in NCAA football after he became the first Canadian of an NCAA national champion in 17 years. Metchie, from Brampton, Ontario, got 94 votes. He edged out Oklahoma State's Amen Ogbongbemiga who received 91 votes. The next closest, Tennessee's Joshua Palmer, picked up 66 votes. Metchie caught six touchdown passes in 2020 with 55 total catches for 916 yards. He is expected to be among Alabama's leaders at receivers this season with the departures of DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle, both of whom went in the first round of the NFL Draft. - Montgomery Advertiser

  It's been a little more than two months since Alabama's last football game and a few injuries remain unhealed. Opening spring practice Friday, Nick Saban rattled off a list of players who were hurt and would likely miss the 15 practices of March and April. He also had an update on running back Trey Sanders who's battling back from injuries suffered in a November car wreck. The injured list included starters like defensive back Malachi Moore, receiver John Metchie, defensive lineman Phidarian Mathis, guard Emil Ekiyor and second-year offensive lineman Pierce Quick will be out, Saban said. "They're not really expected to participate a whole lot in spring practice," was Saban's exact wording, "from previous injuries that needed to be fixed." - Birmingham News

  Mac Jones still threw for 387 yards, completed his first 11 passes and finished 25-for-31. Najee Harris caught six passes out of the backfield for 61 yards while Metchie continued his breakout season. His seven-catch, 151-yard afternoon marked his second triple-digit performance as a favorite Jones downfield option. The Canadian averages 23.8 yards per catch with 21 receptions in his first season starting. "He's a strong receiver he's got good quickness he's got really strong hands," Saban said. "I think he's a smart guy. He really plays the game well, pays attention to detail runs good routes. And he's fast. And he's quick out of a break."

Metchie said word of Waddle's injury reached the sideline a few drives into the game but they had to dial in on the job at hand. "I think we did good," Metchie said. "It's part of the sport. Guys get banged up and it's the next-man-up mentality in fighting through it as a unit and as a team." Waddle is no small presence to replace. He had 100-yard performances in each of the four games played before Saturday with an explosive burst that made him among the most enticing draft-eligible players of the 2020 season. His 557 receiving yards still lead the team despite not catching a ball Saturday. - Birmingham News

  Metchie was periodically mentioned as a standout behind the scenes last year, including after he scored two touchdowns in the team's first 2019 spring scrimmage, but he didn't play much during the season because of the Tide having a top four at wide receiver that featured not only Waddle and Smith but also two 2020 first-round draft picks - Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs. This year is different. Jeudy and Ruggs are gone. That's left Metchie with a chance to be that third option in the Crimson Tide passing game. So far, so good. Saban commended Metchie throughout fall camp. Now, he's off to a good start to the season and showing off that sneaky speed. Which didn't go unnoticed with Waddle. "I told ya'll about his sneaky speed," Waddle joked after the game on Saturday. "He got to showcase that today." - Birmingham News

  John Metchie III entered Saturday with six career catches for 65 yards, having failed to reach the end zone. He was a high-profile signees in Alabama's 2019 recruiting class, but one faced with the logjam of four wide receivers with first-round potential. Metchie's first opportunity came on Saturday; he turned in a performance that will earn him many more in weeks and years to come. Metchie's five catches for 181 yards and two touchdowns were a catalyst for both quarterback Mac Jones' 435-yard performance and Alabama's 52 points in a 52-24 win over Texas A&M. "I told you about his sneaky speed," fellow wide receiver Jaylen Waddle said. "He got to showcase that today." Metchie's speed helped him be the most explosive player in UA's offense, with three of his five catches going for 35 or more yards and two going for more than 60. His first was a 78-yard touchdown on third-and-8, when Metchie found a way past his defensive back and provided Jones an easy, albeit well downfield, target. Metchie's performance will have an impact beyond a win over the Aggies. It comes after a week in which 22 of UA's 32 pass attempts were intended for the two returning receivers of note, DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle. - Montgomery Advertiser
