Alabama’s Soccer Class of 2022 is shaping up to be another home run for head coach Nick Saban. Alabama rose to the top of the SI All-American recruiting rankings this month and looks to continue growing its plethora of talent.
The first national signing day is now just under a month away, so with that in mind, here are a few unenged recruits who could add to Alabama’s offensive firepower going forward.
Kendrick Law, ATH, Captain Shreve High School (Shreveport, Louisiana)
Kendrick Law is listed as an athlete, but he’s been able to show off his explosiveness on offense for Captain Shreve this season.
Standing at 5-foot-11 and weighing 200 pounds, Law played both wide catcher and running back in high school. He is also a track and field runner with a time of less than 11 seconds in the 100 meters. During his junior season, Law walked an average of 10 yards each time he touched the soccer ball.
Law visited Alabama recently on November 6, and Alabama, the state of Florida and the state’s LSU appear to be the leaders in his recruiting.
Jovantae Barnes, RB, Desert Pines High School (Las Vegas, Nevada)
Running back Jovantae Barnes is a 6-foot, 190-pound backer whose engagement would give Alabama a second running back in the 2022 class.
Barnes has a great tackle-breaking ability and has an impressive jump cut in his arsenal which he uses to dodge defenders. He also has an ability to detect passes out of the backfield, which makes him invaluable as a defender every time.
Barnes visited Alabama on October 2 and the only other school he has visited is the state of Florida. Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and USC are also strong contenders.
Barion Brown, WR, Pearl-Cohn High School (Nashville, Tennessee)
Barion Brown is a wide receiver with impressive speed, having previously won the 100 meters in the state of Tennessee.
Brown is 6-foot-1, weighs 175 pounds, and has impressive playing ability, whether it’s downhill lanes or racking up yards after the catch. His ability to stretch the field makes him a valuable asset for any offense.
Brown visited Alabama in June and is primarily competing with Kentucky for his engagement. TCU and Ole Miss are also in the game.
