Junior College offensive lineman Leon Brown has signed for Alabama, Al.com has reported.

The lineman is Nick Saban’s 17th of the 2013 season, and hails from Asa College in Brooklyn, New York.

He told BamaOnline: “I talked to [Alabama offensive line coach] Coach Stoutland and Coach Saban and they both said they were proud about my decision and couldn’t wait to get me down there. I play left tackle- they like the way I play and feel like I have a chance to come in and contribute.”

BOTTOM LINE: At 6ft 6, he’ll be fantastic for ‘Bama’s running game, which has been one of their constants over the years. And at 6 ft 6 and 310 pounds, he could be a shoo-in for the NFL if he’s a success in Tuscaloosa.
