Alabama finished second to Louisville back in July for one of the nation’s top quarterbacks, but the Crimson Tide appear to be back in the mix with less than three weeks to go until National Signing Day.
Jawon Pass, a four-star prospect from Carver High School (Columbus, Ga.), will take an official visit to Alabama beginning on Thursday, according to a source close to the quarterback. Pass and his mother will be making the trip and staying through Saturday.
The nation’s No. 6 dual-threat quarterback, who is brothers with Cardinals safety Khane Pass, also took an official visit to Mississippi State this fall and plans to be at Louisville on Jan. 29 for an official visit.
Pass’ trip to Tuscaloosa is definitely interesting. Alabama already has a quarterback in this class in four-star Jalen Hurts, who was an early enrollee and played the role of Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson for the Crimson Tide during prep for the national championship.
Alabama already had QB Alec Morris transfer to North Texas and rumors have swirled around the program that QB David Cornwell could leave, too. That would leave the Crimson Tide with Hurts, Cooper Bateman and Blake Barnett. Alabama would be hurting with depth, so the Tide signing two quarterbacks in this class makes sense, and Pass could be their guy depending on how this visit goes.
