-Inside linebacker Noah Sewell, received his first offer of his recruiting cycle. Alabama is the first school to offer the 2020 prospect from Saint George, Utah, despite interest from other programs.
His older brother Penei Sewell, attended a camp at the University of Alabama on June 4 and is one of Alabama’s top recruits. He is a four-star prospect in the 2018 class. Penei Sewell is an offensive lineman and the 59th-ranked prospect.

–Antonio Alfano, a five-star defensive tackle and the number 12 ranked recruit nationally visited Alabama on Friday. His visit culminated with Alabama offering him a full scholarship. While Penn State and Notre Dame have been in the driver’s seat for the 6-4, 266-pound defensive lineman, Alabama’s offer may change the game for Alfano.
The Oradell, NJ native currently holds 18 offers and his recruiting should remain a hot topic until he picks a school.
