The University of Alabama will have at least one of its offensive tackles back for the 2020 season.
Alex Leatherwood, the junior left tackle, announced on Twitter that he will return for his senior season, electing to not enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

“My career here has had some ups and down. Things have not always gone the way I envisioned, and because of that, I don’t want it to end now,” Leatherwood’s statement said. “After talking with my family and Coach (Nick) Saban, I have decided to return to Alabama for my senior season.”
Leatherwood started all 13 games for UA at left tackle this season.
The announcement comes minutes after Dylan Moses, the inside linebacker who previously announced he would return for the 2020 season, released a statement through his father’s Moses Law Firm on Instagram saying that his final decision would be made on Jan. 20, the deadline for underclassmen players to declare for the NFL Draft.
