TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — University of Alabama football added a quarterback to its 2023 class, but not Arch Manning.
On Tuesday, Four-star Eli Holstein announced his commitment to the Tide.
According to Rivals, Holstein is the No. 5 player in his position, and 51st nationally. As a junior, Holstein threw for 3,228 yards and 30 touchdowns while leading Zachary High School to a 15-0 record and Louisiana Class 5A title.
“As my Pawpaw used to say, ROLL DAMN TIDE!!!” Holstein wrote in a tweet Tuesday.
With Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young projected to be an early pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, Alabama will be in need of a quarterback. The Crimson Tide have two highly-rated quarterbacks on its roster already with Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson.
