Derrick Henry Should Be Starting Running Back for Alabama in 2013
Could Derrick Henry, the five star running back recruit, be the starting tailback for the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2013? It is a distinct possibility given his senior accomplishments and overall talent level.
Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban has hinted as much, but we will have to wait and see how Henry performs in Spring practices before we find out for sure.
“Several of these guys we recruited are going to have lots of opportunity to contribute this year,” Saban told the Ledger-Enquirer.
There’s one other man who agrees that Henry will contribute right away, and that is his roommate TE O.J. Howard.
“He’s just a freak,” Howard said at signing day. “He’s my roommate and he scares me sometimes just walking around. I think he’s going to do some crazy things this year.”
Henry had a record breaking season at Yulee, and I watched the game live when he went head to head against Kelvin Taylor, the son of future Hall of Famer Fred Taylor. Henry came out big in that nationally televised game and shut up the critics who said that he should be a linebacker at the college football level. It appears that will not be happening, and the only question is how much burn Henry will get in his freshman season with the Tide. I’m predicting an Adrian Peterson-like freshman year impact from the 6-foot-3 running back.
