It is unusual for Alabama to recruit international players. However, Alabama has already landed one international prospect in this recruiting cycle. That is 2024 three-star linebacker Justin Okoronkwo. Another prospect that the Alabama coaching staff has its eyes on is 2024 offensive tackle and Nigerian native Favour Edwin. Recently, Edwin released his top schools list. Alabama was one of the five finalists.
Edwin plays for Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy in McDonough, Georgia. It is his first year playing organized, high school football.
The Alabama coaching staff has been recruiting Edwin since the summer. He has been to Tuscaloosa multiple times already. It will be interesting to see if the coaching staff gives Edwin the green light to commit before early national signing day.
