Alabama RB Justice Haynes viewed as one of the top performing CFB players in spring

The Alabama quarterback situation is a bit hazy heading into the 2023 football season, to say the least. As a result of some of the inexperience at the position, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide get back to prioritizing the ground game and establishing control at the line of scrimmage.

Jase McClellan will be the starting running back heading into the season, but true freshman Justice Haynes has turned heads through spring ball. Haynes was listed as a top-10 standout player in spring ball and Haynes was one of the few true freshmen to make the list per On3 Sports. It’s impressive that Haynes is turning heads across the country without ever playing a snap of collegiate ball.

Coming out of high school, Haynes was the No. 24 overall player in the 2023 class and the No. 3 running back. At 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds he is a bowling ball and will be very difficult for defenders to bring down, but he also has great breakaway speed in the open field.

In four years as a varsity high school player, Haynes put up video game numbers. He appeared in 48 career games with 777 carrier carries for 7,407 yards and 91 touchdowns.
