TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It was going to be hard to top Alabama’s linebacker class in 2012. The Crimson Tide signed four linebackers, all ranked inside the ESPN 150. Even Denzel Devall, a defensive end in high school, has moved to outside linebacker and made an impact as a true freshman.

The 2013 class got off to a similar start when the nation’s No. 1 linebacker, Reuben Foster, committed to Alabama. However, he later flipped to Auburn, leaving Tide legacy Walker Jones as the only true linebacker in the class.

ESPN 150 defensive end DeMarcus Walker, UA’s top-ranked commitment, is expected to play the Jack linebacker spot when he gets to Tuscaloosa.
