The Alabama Crimson Tide lost some incredible talent from their front-seven to the 2016 NFL Draft, but Utah graduate transfer Stevie Tu’ikolovatu could be coming in to help fill one of those voids.
After watching Reggie Ragland, Jarran Reed and A’Shawn Robinson head to the pros, the Crimson Tide have some major holes to fill.
Tu’ikolovatu , who played in 40 percent of Utah’s defensive snaps last season, could do just that. As a well-rounded defensive lineman who can contribute against the run and the pass, he could be highly sought after in Tuscaloosa.
While there is no word on whether Tu’ikolovatu is set to join Alabama, he did take a visit recently.
Tu’ikolovatu shared a photo of his visit on social media:

We will update you with more information on Tu’ikolovatu’s transfer as it becomes available.
