The Passing Attack is Explosive.

Last season the Alabama passing attack was versatile averaging 13.1 yards per reception. With the departures of Bryce Young, Jojo Earle, Traeshon Holden, Jahmyr Gibbs, and a few other vital pass catchers that number surely went down right. The 2023 Alabama team is averaging 15.5 yards per completion an improvement on its 2022 mark. The Offense has been its best passing deep as Isaiah Bond has touchdowns of 46 yards, 52 yards, and 47 yards. Kobe Prentice has a 79-yard touchdown of his own and Jermaine Burton has multiple 50+ yard receptions. While the passing attack hasn’t been efficient like it was with Bryce Young at quarterback it’s an explosive passing attack that has the ability to score deep on any play.
