  12/31/22 - Brian Robinson Jr.rSr/2022, Alabama, 6-1, 225 (DS#9 RB) + More +

  Brian Robinson Jr. grew up near the Alabama campus watching the Crimson Tide win championships, and wanting to play a big part in one. With the fifth-year senior and first-year featured back running for a career-high 204 yards and Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young throwing three touchdown passes, the Crimson Tide earned the chance to play for yet another national title with a 27-6 victory over Cincinnati on Friday in the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Cotton Bowl.

It was a bitter finish for Desmond Ridder and for the Bearcats, the first non-Power Five team ever to get a taste of the CFP. They were physically overwhelmed on the big stage. "B-Rob was huge for us all night," Young said. "Making that first guy miss, falling forward fighting for those extra yards. He was a constant." "As a young kid, just always wanted to be a part of this program. Just always wanted to play for a national championship," Robinson said. "Just being able to go out there and just lead this team in this big game on this big stage...it's like a dream come true." Alabama (13-1) has missed the four-team playoff only once and will try to win its second national title in a row and fourth in the eight seasons of the CFP format. The Crimson Tide will play No. 3 Georgia, the previously undefeated team Alabama beat for the SEC title, in the national championship game Jan. 10 in Indianapolis after the Bulldogs beat No. 2 Michigan 34-11 in the Orange Bowl on Friday night. - Alabama/AP College Football

  12/20/21 - Eli RicksJr/2024, Alabama, 6-2, 195 (DS#4 CB) + More +

  Hours after adding four high schoolers to the class of 2022 on Wednesday, Alabama wasn't done. Former five-star cornerback Eli Ricks confirmed his transfer to the Crimson Tide on Twitter. The former Louisiana State-standout started as a freshman and was the only true freshman named to the AP Al-America Team in 2020 (third-team). "I never visited Bama out of high school but my senior year when I was at IMG, I talked to coach Saban almost every day," Ricks told 247Sports. "I was already locked in with LSU at the time but he's a great coach for sure. My family knows Bryce (Young) and his family really well and my parents have been talking with Craig (father) a lot about what it's like there." Alabama's other defensive backs in the class of 2022 include four-stars Earl Little Jr., Tre'Quon Fegans, Antonio Kite and three-star Jake Pope. Ricks totaled four interceptions at LSU, with two being returned for touchdowns. - Birmingham News

  12/11/21 - Bryce YoungJr/2024, Alabama, 6-0, 194 (DS#1 QB) + More +

  2021 HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER: Bryce Young didn't just meet the standard set by the star quarterbacks who preceded him at Alabama, he exceeded it. Young became the first Crimson Tide quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, making Alabama the fifth school with consecutive winners of college football's most prestigious player of the year award. Young received 684 first-place votes and 2,311 points to easily outdistance Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson (78,954).

Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett (28, 631) finished third and Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud (12, 399) was fourth. Alabama linebacker Will Anderson Jr. (31, 325) was fifth, putting two defensive players in the top five for the first time since 1962. Young has passed for 4,322 yards and 43 touchdowns, leading No 1 Alabama to a Southeastern Conference title and a spot in the College Football Playoff. The defending champion Crimson Tide will play No. 4 Cincinnati on Dec. 31 in the Cotton Bowl. - AP College Football

  12/11/21 - Josh JobeSr/2022, Alabama, 6-0, 194 (DS#8 CB) + More +

  After wide receiver John Metchie was lost for the season because of a torn ACL, Alabama will be down another starter for the College Football Playoff. Cornerback Josh Jobe underwent foot surgery this week and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, On3 Sports reported Thursday. Rivals.com reported the surgery was on Jobe's toe. Kool-Aid McKinstry and Jalyn Armour-Davis, who missed the past two games with a hip injury, would presumably serve as Alabama's starting cornerbacks for the Cotton Bowl against Cincinnati on Dec. 31. - Birmingham News
