At a place known for producing standout running backs, T.J. Yeldon wasted little time in making a lasting impression.
Alabama Crimson Tide fans first glimpsed head coach Nick Saban’s latest backfield stud in last year’s season opener. The 6’2”, 218-pounder gashed a touted Michigan Wolverines defense for 111 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries.
After a strong debut season as Eddie Lacy’s understudy, Yeldon will ascend to the feature back role that has made stars out of Lacy and predecessors Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.
How will Yeldon’s sophomore numbers look in comparison to his freshman All-American campaign?
