Alabama Football Recruiting: Profiling the Tide's 2013 OG Commits
The offensive front is still relatively young for the Crimson Tide, with center Barrett Jones and guard Chance Warmack the most tenured players on the roster.
With an offense that relies heavily on the run game and is in the toughest single conference division in all of college football, the Tide should be set in the trenches well into the foreseeable future.
This Roanoke, Alabama junior comes in at 6'5" and just over 300 pounds, and definitely fits the bill as an SEC offensive lineman.
Bozeman has been a starter for Handley High School since his ninth grade year, and with a ton of size and considerable skill, he's sure to contend for a starting spot in Tuscaloosa as well.
As one of the top high school guards in the nation, Huntsville's Grant Hill already weighs in at a reported 320 pounds, and at 6'5" he is already larger than a lot of big-time college linemen.
Considered a 4-star commit by both Scout.com and Rivals.com, Hill was near the top of the wish list for Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Tennessee, but chose to join the Crimson Tide shortly after this year's signing day.
Chad Simmons of Scout.com calls Hill a "strong and aggressive offensive lineman that can be described as a 'mauler' in the trenches." He goes on to say that Hill "still needs to work on keeping his feet under him, maintaining his balance when engaged, and his feet in pass protection."
A native of Lindale, Georgia, which is just outside the city of Rome, Dodd has been a force for the Pepperell Dragons during his high school career. At 6'4" and 320 pounds, Dodd was in the top 20 overall for Georgia high school recruits, coming in at 15.
Having seen this beast in person, it is easy to see why he was coveted by several top programs in the Southeast and is considered a 4-star talent, according to his 247sports.com profile.
