VIDEO: Keilan Robinson is prepared to have a monster season in his return to Alabama

Everyone within the University of Alabama football program is excited that Keilan Robinson returned, and the junior running back is having a great spring.

He is running with speed and power, catching passes as a receiver, and returning kickoffs on special teams. Nick Saban wants to have all his playmakers on the field in the fall, and Robinson brings an element that the Crimson Tide needs. A native of Washington, D.C., Robinson is starting to look like a combination of Kenyan Drake and Josh Jacobs at the position.

Drake had the speed, hands, and versatility of a receiver/return specialist.
