The Tide's 2009 class feature two sons of Buffalo Bills tight ends who played on their Super Bowl…
Catching up With Tide Commit Darius McKeller
"We went 7-5 this year,," Darius McKeller said. "and lost in the second round to the #1 team in AAAA, Westside Macon." That's as well as Jonesboro has done in some time, isn't it? "We did better than anybody thought we would," he said. "And I dominated almost everybody I went against." If I didn't dominate them, I still won the match-up."" You are in the enviable position of being committed to the #1 team in the nation. How does that stand? "Nothing has changed with recruiting," he shared. "I'm still going to Alabama." That hasn't changed and ain't gonna change anytime soon." What did you think about the Iron Bowl? "It was just like I thought it would be," he shared. "They dominated the line of scrimmage and blew out an OK Auburn team." McKeller is a bit of a project with incredible upside. He is a true 6'6 and close to 300 pounds, yet he moves pretty well for someone with an undeveloped core. As he gets in the weight room and develops under collegiate tutelage, he will undoubtedly get better. If he can assume the identity that Alabama's OL has and plays with, the sky most certainly could be the limit. Burke Hayes is the Southeastern Regional Manager for Football Recruiting at Scout.
