McCullough gets time at LT
Alfred McCullough was a great signee for the Alabama Crimson Tide, but he hasnâ€™t found the best spot. Maybe that has changed. According to the Bama Beat, â€œRedshirt sophomore Alfred McCullough has gone from the defensive line to offensive guard to now the most high-profile and pressure-packed position on the offensive line.â€ McCullough is talented, and is a good individualâ€”hopefully, heâ€™ll find the right spot and get some playing time.

Once he accepted, that was a unanimous choice.â€
