CB Earl Little Jr
The Crimson Tide added two cornerbacks in their 2022 class, both of whom have a chance to see time next season with the highest-rated being four-star Earl Little Jr from American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The No. 12 rated cornerback in the country, Little is rated as the No. 16 player in the state of Florida, as well as the No. 101 player nationally.
A versatile defensive back who has seen time since his freshman season for one of the top teams in Florida, Little has the ability to line up at multiple spots in the secondary making him a candidate to see time early next season. Little is not an early enrollee.
CB Trequon Fegans
The other cornerback in the Crimson Tide’s class is four-star Trequon Fegans, another versatile defensive back from in-state Thompson High School in Alabaster, AL. The No. 5 player in the state of Alabama, Fegans is rated as the No. 15 cornerback in the country, as well as the No. 104 player nationally.
A former Miami commit, Fegans spent his sophomore and junior seasons at Class 6A’s Oxford where he saw time on both sides of the ball before transferring to Class 7A state champion Thompson for his senior season where he added 45 tackles and four interceptions. Fegans is an early enrollee.
S Antonio Kite
Alabama Football, similar to cornerback, added two safeties in their 2022 class with the highest-rated being Antonio Kite, a four-star from Anniston High School in Anniston, AL. Rated as an ATH, Kite is rated as the No. 5 ATH nationally, and the No. 9 player in the state of Alabama, as well as the No. 154 player in the country.
A standout on both the football field and basketball court, Kite played both sides of the ball in high school, and has the athleticism and size to potentially player either wide receiver or defensive back in college. Kite is not an early enrollee.
S Jake Pope
Similar to Kite previously, Alabama Football also added another two-way star at safety in the 2022 class in Jake Pope, a three-star from Buford High School in Buford, GA. The No. 33 safety in the country, Pope is also rated as the No. 38 player in the state of Georgia, as well as the No. 394 player nationally.
As mentioned previously, Pope has seen time at both wide receiver and defensive back for the Class 6A state champions each of the past two seasons, but will likely play safety where he has similar size to Kite. Pope is not an early enrollee.
