Despite losing two All-American underclassmen to the NFL Draft, the Alabama Crimson Tide will be in great shape to chase title No. 17 next season. 

A week after the College Football Playoff National Championship defensive MVP announced he would return to Alabama for one more season, the MVP from the offensive side of the ball did the same.

Tight end O.J. Howard, who saved his career best for the game against Clemson, shared his decision to return to school on Twitter.

Howard will give the Crimson Tide an added dimension in the passing game with the size and speed combo he displayed in Alabama's 45-40 win. The Prattville native caught five passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson after having just one career game with more than four receptions.

Alabama's returning juniors include Howard, Jackson, Jonathan Allen, Reuben Foster, Tim Williams, and Ryan Anderson.
