Jordan Battle is one of the best defensive players in college football, regardless of his position. Getting Battle to return to Tuscaloosa came as a surprise to many, but the Crimson Tide faithful won’t complain about it.

Battle has been placed on the preseason watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award which goes to the country’s most outstanding defensive back. In three years with the Tide, Battle has accumulated 181 tackles five interceptions and three defensive touchdowns.

Battle will surely hear his name called early in the 2023 NFL draft, so we might as well appreciate him while we can.
