Ricks was a highly anticipated transfer from LSU, but his 2022 season didn't unfold the way he envisioned. He made five starts for the Tide towards the end of the year while playing in 10 games. He recorded eight tackles and four pass breakups this year.
Anderson is considered to be a top three pick in the coming spring's NFL draft, with many considering him to be the top defensive player available. He will be competing with his teammate Bryce Young and defensive tackle Jalen Carter to be the first overall selection.
