We’ve got a trend on our hands.
Fewer than 24 hours after junior linebacker Tim Williams announced he is returning to Alabama for the 2016 season, junior safety Eddie Jackson joined him.
Jackson was one of the Tide’s steadiest secondary members this season, leading Alabama with six interceptions. Two of those came against Texas A&M, including a memorable 93-yard touchdown return that blew the game open.
With Williams and Jackson returning, the group of undecided juniors includes running back Derrick Henry, tight end O.J. Howard, defensive linemen Jonathan Allen and A’Shawn Robinson, and linebacker Reuben Foster.
