Scouts: Devall a fit at LB for the Tide

12/8/2011

Alabama added to its top five class with a verbal from Denzel Devall (Bastrop, La.). The prospect out of Louisiana is a versatile defender and while listed as a four-star defensive end he will likely fit best at linebacker in the Crimson Tide’s defense.

He moves around on defense at the high school level and has experience at the linebacker position. He possesses good size and moves well with the ability to close on the ball quickly. He can also be a punishing tackler. He also has the tools to be disruptive rushing the passer.

Devall is a good athlete and a good football player, he needs to keep polishing his technique, but is nice fit and just overall good get for Alabama’s defense.
