Alabama football: Dylan Moses mirroring Rashaan Evans early in career
Alabama football drives the conversation here at the Rammer Jammer, SEC Country’s daily Alabama athletics recap, but we’ll cover news for every facet of the Crimson Tide. Every morning, we’ll be here for the latest on Alabama football, basketball and every other sport on campus.
Dylan Moses is next version of Rashaan Evans
Taking someone’s number can be a big responsibility, especially if that player left a big legacy. Linebacker Dylan Moses isn’t backing down from that responsibility. He changed his number to 32, previously worn by fellow linebacker Rashaan Evans. In this case, it makes sense. Moses and Evans are the same height and only 2 pounds separate their weights. They possess similar skill sets. Both were 5-star recruits, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Moses is already starting to mirror Evans.

Opponents use Nick Saban’s age against him
At 66 years old, Alabama coach Nick Saban is not exactly the youngest coach in college football. That seems to have no effect on his dominance. While he could retire in the next 5 or so years, he is still dominating in recruiting. That isn’t stopping his opponents from using his age as a negative. Coaches are reportedly telling recruits that he will retire soon as a way to sway them not to attend Alabama.
Predicting Alabama’s depth chart
Saban hates depth chart questions. He has made that known. He will never give the media a depth chart until the season actually starts. So, we have to predict it on our own. Our own Christopher Walsh predicted Alabama’s offensive depth chart. It all starts at quarterback.
