Bama Pulls Top Recruit Out of Louisiana on Signing Day

Alabama and LSU routinely compete for recruits, especially on the Tigers’ turf in Louisiana. The Crimson Tide scored a big win on signing day when four-star defensive tackle Ishmael Sopsher from Amite High School decided to leave the state for college.

Sopsher was a high school teammate for Alabama receiver Devonta Lee, who caught the game winning touchdown pass in the 2017 College Football Playoff championship game against Georgia.

The Tide will have some holes to fill on the defensive line with Quinnen Williams, Raekwon Davis and Isiah Buggs off the NFL. The 330-pound Sophser could see some early playing time at Alabama.
