Quinnen Williams, a 4 star defensive tackle from Birmingham, was originally committed to Auburn. He decommitted from the Tigers in 2015; and, nearly a year later, committed to Alabama in June 2016 before his senior season.
He stuck with the Tide and wound up redshirting his freshman year behind some talented defensive linemen. With the departure of Jonathan Allen and Dalvin Tomlinson, both defensive end spots are open. Da’Shawn Hand is likely to take one of those spots; but the other starting position, plus plenty of playing time as a rotational guy inside and outside, are up for grabs.
3rd and 2: Williams is the strongside defensive end on the right side of the line. He’s a little slow off the snap and gets tangled up close with Jonah Williams. Quinnen Williams is shut down but eventually gets free as Hurts scrambles to the right and the play breaks down.
