Jake Fromm understands the pressure of being the next great Alabama quarterback, and he’s ready for the challenge.
Fromm, a four-star prospect from Houston County High School (Warner Robins, Ga.), spent some time with former Crimson Tide great and current Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron over the weekend, and it was an experience Fromm won’t soon forget.
“It was awesome,” Fromm told SEC Country. “He really focuses on the little things, and it was great watching his work ethic. AJ can really spin (the football).”
The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder also got to hang out with one of Alabama’s top quarterback targets in the 2018 class, four-star Jack West. Fromm said McCarron gave him advice on how to handle the rest of his recruitment.
“He just told me to enjoy the ride and be ready to work when I get to Alabama,” Fromm said of McCarron’s message to him.
Since committing in October, Fromm has become one of the Crimson Tide’s top recruiters. He recently told SEC Country he has a list of recruits he’s hoping that joins him in Tuscaloosa, and despite receiving strong interest from the in-state Georgia Bulldogs, Fromm says he really doesn’t see anything that will make him back off his pledge to Alabama.
“I love Alabama so much,” he said. “I’m really pumped to enroll early there and just enjoy the rest of the recruiting process.”
Fromm is rated as the nation’s No. 6 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2017, according to the 247Sports composite.
