7.) Kyle Edwards

Last but not least, we wrap up the Alabama Crimson Tide running back group with 3-star Kyle Edwards out of Louisiana. Edwards had an impressive senior season rushing over 1800 yards and 27 touchdowns. Another stat people will like to hear is that Edwards did not fumble the football on 331 touches. In one particular game, Edwards ran for 220 yards on 29 carries and five touchdowns. Edwards is known for lowering his head and grabbing every extra yard possible.

Nick Saban is notorious for recruiting this type of physical backs in Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacey, Bo Scarborough, Derrick Henry, and Najee Harris. Speaking of being notorious, the Crimson Tide is also known for the ground and pound running game. Many Alabama football fans are hoping for a re-emergence of it in 2020.


That wraps up the Alabama Crimson tide running back group for 2020. Opponents should absolutely feel decimated after looking at the experience and potential. Could this group be historical? Yes. With Tua Tagovailoa gone, the Tide could look to ground and pound more, taking some pressure off a new starting quarterback this season. Most expect the starter to be a proficient Mac Jones. He could be even better by mixing his passing skills with a powerful running game. If you ask me who has the deepest running back stable in all of college football, the answer will automatically be the Alabama Crimson Tide.

dark. Next. Will Alabama be able to field an ELITE defense in 2020?

Even though the Alabama Crimson Tide loses several key proponents in 2020, there is no shortage of talent as shown. Combined Mac Jones, this stable of running backs, DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, and an experienced offensive line and be prepared to see the Tide score big.
