How to make the prospect of Alabama fielding a 6-foot-5, 340-pound offensive lineman even more ominous? Put him next to three other guys just like him:
Alabama has offered several offensive linemen in the 300-plus range since Mario Cristobal was hired last month, including Lackawanna (Penn.) Community College tackle Jermaine Eluemunor (6-6, 300), Nassau (N.Y.) Community College tackle Chad Mavety (6-6, 320), and Corona (Calif.) Centennial guard Viane Talamaivao (6-3, 300).
Cristobal's strategy is a simple one: The opponent can't sack AJ McCarron
, or one of the six guys battling to succeed him, if it can't see over any of the guys in front of him.
