Report: Devonta Smith leaning toward returning to Alabama in 2020

If he does, pencil him in as a Biletnikoff finalist.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

We have heard rumblings that Alabama’s underclassman defection to the NFL might not be as devastating as feared, and last night a report from Chris Breece, a sports anchor for CBS 42 out of Birmingham, surfaced that Devonta Smith is leaning toward a return to Alabama.

Smith had a monster 2019 campaign, grabbing 65 balls for 1200 yards and 13 TD. Should he decide to return, which is obviously not a given, he would have to be on the Biletnikoff Award short list. Frankly, he should have been this season.

Hope for the best.

Roll Tide.
