Alabama Football Expecting Big Recruiting Weekend

5 of 10

Markail Benton – OLB – 6′ 1″, 237 lbs. – Phenix City, AL – Committed

Benton fits the new prototype for Alabama’s outside linebackers; good size, but most importantly speed.  Auburn wants to change Benton’s mind before Signing Day but he looks pretty solid to the Tide.

Nick Saban and Derrick Ansley visited with Benton a few days ago.  He had multiple unofficial visits to Tuscaloosa this past fall, including for the Iron Bowl.
