Quarterback Mac Jones hasn’t been committed to Alabama long, but he’s already comparing himself to a former Crimson Tide great.
The 4-star recruit from Jacksonville posted an unorthodox highlight video Thursday afternoon that might get Alabama fans excited. The reel featured some of Jones’ best throws during his high school career, but each throw was followed by a resemblant pass from former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. Believe it or not, the similarities aren’t too far off.

Jones has picked a pretty good Alabama quarterback to emulate. The 2013 Maxwell Award winner led Alabama to consecutive national championships in 2011 and 2012. He threw for 9,019 yards, 77 touchdowns and only 15 interceptions during his collegiate career and is now a backup quarterback with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Alabama flipped Jones earlier in the month after he committed to Kentucky in July 2015. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound gunslinger is rated as the No. 14 pro-style quarterback nationally in the Class of 2017. Alabama fans will be very happy if Jones’ career is even somewhat similar to McCarron’s.
