Alabama Beats Out Georgia and Ohio State for Star RB
Justice Haynes, of the nation’s premier running backs in the class of 2023, has committed to Alabama over Georgia and Ohio State. Haynes becomes Alabama’s eighth ESPN 300 prospect in the class of 2023, 12th total prospect, and the first running back.
The recruiting win is even sweeter for Nick Saban as Haynes has family ties to Georgia, with his father Verron Haynes a former star running back at UGA drafted by the Steelers in 2002.
Haynes stands at 5 foot 10 and weighs 200 pounds. Last season, the Buford, GA product rushed for an insane 2,375 yards, averaging an almost unbelievable 8.6 yards per touch and a mind-boggling 29 touchdowns.
After losing out on Peter Woods last week, stealing one from Georgia has to be looked at as a huge win for running backs coach Robert Gillespie, Nick Saban, and the entire recruiting staff.
