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.
I’m told Alabama WR DeVonta Smith is planning on staying for his senior season, as of right now. Obviously things can change with so much time left. But this is the first round of potential good news for #Alabama— Chris Breece (@ChrisBreece) December 12, 2019
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.
