Jedrick Wills Explains “The Alabama Factor”
On offense, Alabama returns a number of key pieces including quarterback Tua Tagovailoa along with wide receivers Jerry Jeudy, DeVonta Smith and Henry Ruggs, III. The Crimson Tide also returns four important contributors along the offensive line including Jedrick Wills, Jr.
Wills started all 15 games in 2018 as Tua Tagovailoa's protector at right tackle while being a featured part of one of college football's top offensive line.
To close out the first week of spring practice, the Lexington, Kentucky, spoke to reporters about a number of topics relating to the 2019 season.
Returning to the "Alabama Factor" has been an important theme for the program following an embarrassing 44-16 defeat at the hands of Clemson. Among the primary objectives for Nick Saban has been developing leadership among the players.
While Alabama's head coach did not go into an explanation as to the origins of the "Alabama Factor" last week, Wills did offer his thoughts concerning the pieces involved in the "Alabama Factor" on and off the field.
"Commitment, discipline, effort, toughness, pride and developing yourself to be relentless for 60 minutes in a ball game." Wills said. "Another big thing this year is discipline outside of football like in the classroom, just walking around the community, things like that."
