Alabama’s Tyler Booker practicing at tackle during spring football

The offensive line of Alabama football has little experience in returning plays. At least for the time being, though the Crimson Tide should benefit when Kadyn Proctor gets back from his trip to Iowa and the transfer portal opens.

UA is now exploring different options at tackle. Tyler Booker, a seasoned left guard who informed reporters on Tuesday that he has practiced outside, is another option the Tide is considering.

Booker declared on Tuesday, “I’m willing to do whatever this team needs to win.” “I will play tackle if it is necessary.”

Booker played tackle at Florida’s IMG Academy throughout his high school career. The now junior was pulled inside by Nick Saban and associates as soon as he arrived in Alabama.

Due to the effectiveness of the move, Booker was selected for the 2022 SEC all-freshman team. After accepting a full-time starting role the previous season, he led the Crimson Tide to victory and earned all-SEC recognition.

Correct tackle Now, JC Latham is headed to the NFL. Proctor, a left-handed starter, reportedly moved to Iowa but is returning through the portal.

It is currently unknown how the offensive line will be assembled. Returnees Elijah Pritchett, Wilkin Formby, and Texas A&M transfer Naquil Bertrand are a few more tackle alternatives.

Bryant-Denny Stadium will host the Crimson Tide’s traditional A-Day game on Saturday. That game should provide additional insight into the circumstances.

Booker said he was enjoying the outside reps, which he said were entirely on the left side, in the interim. Booker’s primary position has remained that of left guard.

Booker likened it to riding a bike.
