He is the most physically imposing player in Alabama’s signing class, and he’s now on campus.

Kendrick Blackshire had Crimson Tide fans in awe when he committed, but now his football journey in Tuscaloosa begins.

According to his Twitter profile, the Duncanville (Texas) native got to campus late Tuesday night.

He is one of 15 summer enrollees that look to push for significant playing time in the fall.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder is a big-time hitter at the inside linebacker position. He was strong against the run in high school, and there is no escape if he gets ahold of the quarterback.

Before his arrival, he spent the offseason adding more muscle to his body and improving his footwork.

It is going to be very exciting to watch his development over the course of three to four years.
