Alabama Football Expecting Big Recruiting Weekend

6 of 10

Akial Byers – DL – 6′ 4″, 275 lbs. – Fayetteville, AR – Committed

Akial Byers is a 4-star recruit at a position of need for Alabama. Arkansas has not given up on Byers.  Also, there have been questions about him qualifying academically.

Some recruiting experts reported that Byers struggled at times against top offensive lineman at the Under Amour All-America game practices.

With questions about on-the-field and off-the-field performance, it is hard to predict if Byers will end up being part of the 2017 class.
