Alabama already has a trio of decorated offensive linemen in the fold, but all three are projected to begin their college careers at one of the three interior positions.
Saban would like to nab at least one elite offensive tackle prospect. There are several names on the board, but one player who appears to be a priority for Saban is Memphis 4-star Drew Richmond.
According to Power, Richmond said he was contacted by Saban while the Tide’s head coach was in New York City earlier this month for the NFL draft.
“He just told me he wanted to see me up there in a couple of years coming from Alabama,” Richmond said. “He was up there with Cyrus (Kouandjio) and Ha Ha (Clinton-Dix). I was excited to talk to Coach Saban while he was at the draft. That was special.”
Richmond visited Tuscaloosa at the end of March, and if he makes a return trip over the summer, it will signal that the interest between the two parties is mutual and growing.
