Calvin Anderson isn’t the only graduate transfer from Rice making some waves as his buddy on the defensive line is doing the same thing in Preston Gordon. He is also a graduate transfer looking to make his name in a bigger conference and it appears he may have a favorite or at least one desirable landing spot.

He confirmed to this week that he has had “some preliminary contact” with Alabama as a potential landing spot. The Crimson Tide lost three defensive lineman to the NFL Draft this year and only brought in two for the recruiting class. Doing some simple math, that should leave Gordon a chance to start right away and make a difference for a usually stout defense.

The 6-foot-1, 280-pound tackle started 28 games for the Owls the last three seasons including every game in the 2017 season. In 2016, Gordon tied for the team lead in sacks with 3.5, while his 6.5 tackles for loss led all interior linemen on the squad. This past season, he was third on the team in tackles for loss with 4.5. While that did come at a level inferior to the SEC, he should still be able to use his experience and talent to make a difference at a higher level.
