Five-star Alabama linebacker Lyndell “Mack” Wilson shared an interesting graphic Friday night that showed top maximum speeds among the Crimson Tide’s running backs, tight ends, linebackers and quarterbacks.
Wilson was proud to be sixth on that list, running at just under 20 mph. However, the post was deleted Saturday morning, a likely indication that the Crimson Tide coaching staff didn’t want that information getting out. Or maybe he just thought better of it.
Among the top 10 players, four of them are freshmen, and the top speedster is linebacker Rashaan Evans at 20.52 mph. He had four sacks last year, and with speed like that, he should be in line for plenty more.
