Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Alabama Crimson Tide got a commitment from an elite offensive lineman.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Going into 2021, the Tide will have the best offensive tackle in the nation suiting up for them. Tommy Brockermeyer, out of Fort Worth, Texas, committed to the Tide back on Friday.
Standing 6-foot tall and weighing 283 lbs., Brockermeyer figures to be a punishing lineman once he rounds into form. He ranks as the best offensive tackle in the nation in the 2021 recruiting class and is also the best offensive lineman in the class in general. The only players ahead of him are top defensive end Korey Foreman, defensive end J.T. Tuimoloau, Ohio State Buckeyes commit and defensive end Jack Sawyer, and Oklahoma Sooners commit and dual-threat sensation Caleb Williams.
The addition of Brockermeyer, as well as his brother James Brockermeyer, propped Alabama all the way up to the #2 recruiting class in the nation, per 247Sports Composite. They are still well behind Ohio State, who has set the pace with a ridiculous class at this point. But, nevertheless, ‘Bama has the best class in the SEC at the moment, as they leapfrogged the Tennessee Volunteers among others.
