Jeremiah Alexander 5-Star EDGE 2022 Engagement Rating


When it rains, it pours. But when it’s Alabama football winning another 5-star rookie, it can sound like other fans like a supercell storm, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake.

It’s true that five-star EDGE Jeremiah Alexander enlisted two months ago, but it’s never too late to provide a proper assessment before he arrives on campus in the spring or fall semester of 2022.

5 stars


# 11 overall, # 1 EDGE (247Sports Composite)


Alexander has an innate ability to diagnose offensive ploys. When reviewing the tape, you will notice that it sticks to its readings and effectively covers the gaps assigned to it. You will rarely see an error in its first substantial step. He uses his heavy hands to effectively fight blockers to get into playing position. Developmentally, he has improved his passing race year after year, with room to improve even more. Speed ​​and power aren’t lost in Jeremiah’s play, he’s quick after the snap, averaging 0.64 seconds to cross the line of scrimmage after the snap, according to my count. Its build is already ideal for the college level at 235 pounds. Expect him to be in the rotation very early for the Crimson Tide.

Where it fits in the defense of Alabama

His current high school, Thompson, runs a defense much like Alabama’s. The setup is a 3-4 base with two gap responsibilities for standing linebackers. Alexander has an ideal build and skills to be a SAM (or strong linebacker) in the Crimson Tide core package. At the high school level, he’s shown he can cover a tight end in passing situations, get through blockers and disengage on command with his passing rush and fill in his assigned gaps in running play. . These qualities are essential for a successful defense in which he will participate in Alabama.

Expectations and when it might start

During his first year on campus, he may be competing with Drew Sanders and Dallas Turner for a starting spot at SAM. I see him contributing on a rotational basis immediately, however, I don’t expect him to start until he has at least a year under his belt. He has the potential to easily be a draft pick early in the round. All he has to do is trust the process and bond. He must be ready and willing to learn and adapt.

This addition to the Recruiting Class of 2022 should be an exciting one for all Tide fans. Jeremiah Alexander’s potential is immense, and he shouldn’t disappoint.
