Alabama OL Emil Ekiyor will return for final season in Tuscaloosa

·1 min read

Nick Saban and the coaching staff in Tuscaloosa have received some more good news. Starting right guard Emil Ekiyor Jr. has decided to remain at Alabama for his final season instead of entering the 2022 NFL draft.

Ekiyor’s return is huge for the Alabama offensive line considering the early departure of Evan Neal and the graduation of Chris Owens.

With Ekiyor back for another season, Alabama will return three of its five starting offensive linemen.

Ekiyor announced his decision on Twitter earlier this evening.
