Alabama gains verbal commitment from massive offensive tackle

Joey Blackwell

Alabama added its second offensive tackle commit to the 2020 recruiting class on Wednesday.

Damieon George, a consensus 3-star prospect out of Houston, made his announcement via Twitter.

The lineman measures up to 6-foot-6, and weighs 348 pounds, making him a big addition to the Crimson Tide’s class.

According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, George is the No. 35 offensive tackle in the nation. George has also received offers from Ole Miss, Miami, Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

George joins Seth McLaughlin out of Buford, Ga., as the second tackle in the class.

One thing to note with George’s commitment is that he is the teammate of five-star running back Zach Evans. Evans reportedly made an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa earlier this week, according to 247Sports.

The commitment by George expands the list of Alabama recruits in the 2020 class to 18.
