Aaron Suttles Gives His Thoughts on Alabama’s A-Day Performance [Audio]
Aaron Suttles, Alabama beat reporter for the Tuscaloosa News, joined Ryan Fowler to discuss the Tide's A-Day game, the final scrimmage of the spring for Nick Saban and his crew.
It wasn't the best of performances across the field from the Crimson Tide on Saturday, but Suttles was asked about his opinion on the production of the quarterbacks, and Suttles made sure to bring up the performance of Jalen Hurts, a true freshman, and he had nothing but good things to say about the young gunslinger.
"The moment didn't overwhelm him. He comes out and there's 76,000 people in the stands, he should be going to his high school prom... I think [he] could be a multi-year starter, a dynamic multi-year starter at Alabama."
However, one of the bright points of the glorified scrimmage was the Tide's defense, holding the opposing offenses to just 10 total points on the day. Suttles was really impressed with both first team and second team defenses, but as was the case with everyone who was watching, the production of defensive lineman Tim Williams was his main discussion point.
"Last year, he showed why he just kind of scratched the surface on what he can do... You can't look at what Tim Williams did (on Saturday) and not just shrug your shoulders and go 'Wow.' I mean, he's almost near unblockable."
