Tenpenny: I will just be signing with Alabama.
|Altee Tenpenny will arrive at Alabama facing a crowded RB position.|
Ryan Vincent (@CodyVincent): What number will you wear at #Bama? #AskAltee
Tenpenny: I don’t know -- any number besides like a real high number like in the 30s or 40s. I guess a single digit number or in the 20s.
Richard Scarcelli (@RollTideRichard): #AskAltee How would you characterize your running style? Who do you compare it to in the NFL?
Tenpenny: I’ve been told that I’m an aggressive runner. I’m really like a one-cut back. I don’t try to make too many moves. I use quick feet to the hole, and then get that burst and do what I’ve got to do in the open field. I guess I compare myself as an Arian Foster type.
Patrick P (@patrickpSEC): Favorite current NFL player? #AskAltee
Tenpenny: Ray Rice
Derek Green (@dgreen_rtr): #AskAltee Was the recruiting turned up since you committed so early or did it slack off?
Tenpenny: It definitely turned up. After I committed, the offers that I got were Notre Dame, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Georgia started talking to me. So I don’t what attracted them after I committed or if they were already going to talk to me.
Joshua Royster (@230kv_barehand): #AskAltee What was your biggest reason for picking Bama? You will love Titletown by the way. #Roadto16
Tenpenny: I guess like I’ve been saying throughout the whole thing, it’s the running back tradition. Not only have they produced good backs, not only has their back won a Heisman and won a Doak Walker, but it’s how they rotate their backs -- two or three backs get a few carries each game. It’s not just one back carrying the whole load, so that intrigued me. Plus, the strength coach, Coach [Scott] Cochran, I really got along with him when I first went down there.
Jason Metz (@jmetz75): Did the hiring of Bret Beliema perk your curiosity? #AskAltee
Tenpenny: It perked my curiosity. I just wanted to see and get to know him better as a person and his coaching style because I had heard things, but you don’t know how someone is until you meet them.
Judd Henderson (@Bama_man_Judd): Who is the person you helped who had the seizure? #AskAltee
Tenpenny: It was a girl at our school. I don’t know her that well -- her name is Breanna -- but I just see her frequently around school. She came into the classroom and told our teacher she was feeling numb, and she just got to shaking.
