Alabama has a history of being loaded across the board. Perhaps no more so than at RB with players like Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson sharing the same backfield. This strength at the RB appears to be continuing as Alabama who already has great young talent at the position on the roster and has a ridiculously strong recruiting class coming in.
Recent commit Derrick Henry of Yulee Florida had a record setting night last night in a playoff victory against Perry Florida. Henry finished with a ridiculous 482 yards and 6 TDs on 58 carries. This effort broke a national career rushing record of 11,232 yards previously held by Ken Hall for 60 years.
On the season, in 11 games Henry has not been held below 200 yards rushing. He has run for 3,752 yards and 50 touchdowns.
Henry now has 11,612 yards and 148 TDs for his career. And counting...
Henry is physically imposing listed at 6'3" and upwards of 240 pounds. He will likely be a force to be reckoned with once Alabama has put him through their workout program.
