The Alabama Crimson Tide takes on the Tennessee Volunteers this Saturday, Oct. 15 at 2:30 p.m. in Knoxville. McKinstry and Arnold appear to have the starting cornerback positions locked down. It will be interesting to see how much impact Ricks might make on this Alabama defense going forward in 2022.
The Alabama Crimson Tide dominated the ULM Warhawks 63-7 on Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Tide controlled all three phases of the football game, setting a school record for punt return yards in a game and scoring touchdowns on special teams and defense.
According to Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports, Alabama senior cornerback Josh Jobe underwent foot surgery this week and will be unavailable for the Tide's playoff run. Jobe has been dealing with a turf toe injury that has impacted his availability most of the year.
It only took two games for Kool-Aid McKinstry to make an impactful play for the Alabama Crimson Tide. McKinstry, the top player in the state of Alabama in the 2021 recruiting class, intercepted a Drew Sanders batted ball in the first quarter to give the ball back to the offense at midfield.
