Reggie Ragland came to Alabama as a five-star, in-state prospect from Bob Jones High School in Madison, AL. Far too fast, quick, and nimble for a man of his size, the 250-pounder was a major contributor on special teams as a freshman and sophomore before taking a full-time starting role in 2014. As a senior, he led the 2015 national champion defense while earning unanimous All-American honors and was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
Selected by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Reggie suffered a season-ending knee injury on the first day of camp. While his story will have to wait a bit, there is much to be written for him.
Thanks for the memories and Roll Tide, Reggie.
