The inside linebacker group that was perilously thin this season is now stacked, as soon to be sixth year senior Josh McMillon has decided to return.

McMillon said last month he received a redshirt for 2020 but later clarified that did not automatically mean he would come back. pic.twitter.com/zWYXlspSCG
We will analyze in the coming days, but the early guess would be an every down role for Dylan Moses, with McMillon likely bringing his veteran presence in for running downs and base packages. In any event, it can’t hurt to have a guy around the room who has been with the program for that long. Awesome news.
Roll Tide, Josh!
