Who will step up in Alabama’s secondary in its season opener?

Alabama football returns next week.

With the excitement Nick Saban has about the offense and certain parts of the defense, the biggest question is will the Crimson Tide have the players in the secondary he can trust to win games? In a difficult offseason, due to the Coronavirus, Alabama suffered its first big injury in fall camp. Ronald Williams Jr., a junior college cornerback from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, sustained a broken arm. The four-star defensive back came in the Tide’s signing class in February as a four-star and possessed the size, length, speed and athleticism to possibly be a top corner in the Southeastern Conference.
