Editor's note: This is a series introducing Alabama's 2013 recruiting class that will run through signing day.

If there’s one recruit who’s set the standard for this 2013 Alabama class, it’s ESPN 150 tight end O.J. Howard. Ranked No. 42 overall, Howard committed to the Crimson Tide two summers ago. Since then, he’s competed and excelled at nearly every camp and 7-on-7 tournament he’s been to. At Alabama, he’s scheduled to enroll early and will start at H-back as a freshman.
