Nick Saban gave an update on freshman outside linebacker Eyabi Anoma Monday afternoon.
Anoma, a former five-star recruit who was recently named to the SEC All-Freshman Team wasn’t present for Alabama’s practice Monday and then sent out a cryptic tweet that read, “Made a decision and will stick by it.”
“I haven’t really had the opportunity to visit with him,” Saban said. “He has a personal day, I guess, to sort some things out. Hopefully we’ll be able to get him back on track here soon.”
The Baltimore native has played in 11 games as a reserve for the Crimson Tide, posting nine tackles and two stops for a loss.
Anoma was the highest-ranked member of Alabama’s most recent recruiting class, ranking as the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2018 class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
