Damieon George Jr. was most Alabama fans' last memory of him during the Iron Bowl, when he allowed five pressures and two sacks in only 24 snaps while starting the game at right tackle. That one poor performance, on the other hand, should not be used to dismiss his future potential.
The Iron Bowl was one of three games in which George started for the Crimson Tide last season, as he also started at right tackle for the team against Arkansas and New Mexico State. He fared slightly better against the Razorbacks and Aggies, surrendering a play tic tac toe total of two pass rushes and one sack over a total of 81 snaps in the two games.
As a result of Evan Neal's early departure for the NFL and Chris Owens' ineligibility, Alabama is looking to replace both of its starting offensive tackles from last season. Jeremy George, a junior, and Kendall Randolph, a sixth-year senior, are the only returning Crimson Tide players with starting experience at the position, making the two of them prime candidates to compete for the remaining openings.
