Trey Sanders is one of the most high-profile recruits in the country and the 2019 running back prospect’s talent speaks for itself. His combination of athleticism and production is enough to make Sanders the No. 3 running back in the country for the 2019 class and, at this point in time, Sanders is committed to Alabama.
In fact, Sanders has been committed to play in Tuscaloosa since his sophomore season and, if anything, his star has risen even further since he made that pledge. Recently, though, there has been some level of buzz that he could consider a de-commitment but that went out the window in a conversation with Chris Kirschner of SEC Country.
In short, he is “in love” with the Crimson Tide.
“Every time I go up there, I fall in love with them all over again. I just like The Process and what [running backs] Coach [Burton] Burns does with the running backs. They always succeed.”
Sanders told the outlet that other programs have a “legit shot” to flip him before a decision has to be made and that list includes powerhouses like Clemson, Georgia and Florida State. Still, this kind of quote should put Alabama’s collective mind at ease and the Tide are in great position to add an impactful running back in 2019.
