Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide just landed another stud recruit. This time they out-dueled Tennessee and Georgia for 5-star running back/athlete Derrick Henry.

The 6’3”, 235-pound tailback from Yulee, Florida, broke the state's single-game rushing record last week by totaling 502 yards against Jackson (Jacksonville, Fla.).

How will Henry fit into Alabama’s offense? Watch as Bleacher Report’s Michael Felder breaks down Henry's high school highlights and gives you the inside scoop on how the Crimson Tide will use Henry’s skills to maximize their offense.

Henry also owns the Florida state record for consecutive 100-yard games with 38, and would tie the national record if he is able to top the 100-yard barrier Friday night.  

The monster running back/athlete is ranked as the No. 20 overall recruit in Class of 2013 by 247Sports and was previously committed to Georgia.
