Name one player on both sides of the ball from your team that no one has probably ever heard of that be make huge impacts this year. For Bama its easy on offense WR Christian Jones also on special teams look for him to have a big year, and on defense Adrian Hubbard will make a big impact at the jack LB position IMO.
Offense - Devonta Freeman ( still feel he is an unknown )
Defense - Christian Jones
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Offense: Jerald Robinson or Jeremy Gallon
Defense: Jake Ryan
was going to put pretty much exactly what you said.
I know he is fairly known but i believe Kenny Bell will have a monster year but that's JMO
Defense.. Tharold Simon.. 6'3'' CB, been over shadowed by Claiborne, Peterson and Mathieu.. Dudes a beast and held his own against Julio Jones a few times when matched up.
Offense.. Jeremy Hill.. Might be the best RB on the team and he just had an amazing run in a scrimmage.. 6'1'' 225 pounds with breakaway speed.. So glad we ended up with him.. I think he's better than Hilliard, Blue, Ware and Ford

Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.

Hill is a stud for sure..his highlights are sick
Check this 50 yard TD he had during a scrimmage last week... Video quality isn't good but the dude will be very tough to stop.. You're right, his HS highlights were insane.. Thanks for the compliments
Jeremy Hill 50 yard in Spring Scrimmage
Keep an eye on Craig Loston at safety too.. Very unknown and underrated
I hope he breaks out.. He was a 5***** out of HS so people know him.. Reid is way better but this is Lostons year to really break out... His problem is hitting people to hard and getting flags, probably should play LBer but he has all the potential in the world.
Coaches were saying it's taken him a long time to learn the playbook but he's finally got it down (Chavis has a tough playbook to learn)
There's so much talent, it's hard to pick just one guy.. You could name Freak Johnson, Ego Ferguson and many more.
Pretty much exactly what I was going to post. I was going with Gallon though.
Defense - CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (T-So.), played significant minutes as a true freshman last year, even getting the start in a couple. The "nation" probably doesn't know him that well though. 5-10 190 Physical, very sure tackler even as a Fr. Very active in spring game, and had a nice diving pick off of Mariota. One of those mature beyond their age, leadership types. All three freshman CBs (Ekpre-Olomu, Mitchell, and Hill) were thrown to the wolves last year and it showed at times but it was a year of experience under their belt.
Offense - TE Colt Lyerla (T-So.), is primed to take over as Paulson's replacement at TE, and has the athleticism and talent to do so. 6'5 240 right now. He'll need to be the leader of a young TE position that relies heavily on freshman, though Evan Baylis looked excellent in spring ball.

All-seeing instrument. Supreme perception. Omnifocal accumulator... Its gaze upon the blind. Information divinity by man designed.
How has Jake Fisher been progressing?
Not to hijack, but I miss the Julio vs. Peterson days. That was ALWAYS a good matchup to watch.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Gallon will probably be the best bet since he has already made an impact.
Actually Fisher might be another guy to consider for this thread. Had a decent season playing as a T-Fr. and haven't heard any to suggest that he won't be a reliable player this upcoming season. OL is the hardest position to crack as a freshman so that tells you what Greatwood (OL coach) thought about him. Will probably see most of his time at RT for the foreseeable future. Hoping since Kyle Long only has one season left of eligibility that he can come in and anchor the LT spot.
Damn, he sounds like a big miss on Michigan's part.
Offense- Either Jeff Driskel or Jacoby Brissett
Defense- Marcus Roberson
You ain't lying.. Those 2 guys are simply freaks of nature.
I would also consider Thomas Gordon on defense as I doubt most fans have heard of him even though he started all last year.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Never heard of that 5*. Definitely underrated.
Offense: RB Mike Gillislee 5'11'' 210
Defense: CB Loucheiz Purifoy 6'1'' 187
Damn you RichRod.
Offense- Joe Bergeron RB
Runs like Ricky without top end speed.
Defense- Quandre Diggs CB
James Brown + Joe Bergeron.
