Wide receiver Tyrell Shavers will continue to focus on football through the duration of spring practice, baseball coach Brad Bohannon said on Monday. Shavers had practiced with the Alabama baseball team during January and February but has not yet played in a game this season.
“Tyrell, we worked for a month or so, and with the Fourth Quarter Program and spring football coming up in the short term, he’s just really going to attack that,” Bohannon said. “We’ll kind of get through spring football and regroup. But right now, he’s full-time football.”
Shavers remains listed on Alabama’s 35-man roster but has not played in a game this season. Alabama has used 33 different players so far this season. Freshman pitcher Landon Green is the only other player on the roster who hasn’t played; Green has been injured.
Shavers was with the football program on Friday afternoon when the Crimson Tide opened spring practice. Alabama baseball was playing its series opener against Northern Kentucky at the same time that the first spring practice was held.
He played in all 15 football games during the 2018-19 season but did not record any stats. Spring football practice runs through the A-Day game on April 13, while the baseball regular season runs through May 18.
