Four Alabama commits and three Auburn commits headline Alabama’s roster for the 2022 Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Classic.
The game will be played Dec. 10 at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama in Mobile.
Alabama commits selected to the squad are Florence DB Jahlil Hurley, Eufaula LB Yhonzae Pierre, Anniston OL Ryqueze McElderry, Hewitt-Trussville’s Hunter Osborne and Northridge OL Wilkin Forby. Auburn commits are Auburn High OL Bradyn Joiner, Montgomery Catholic RB Jeremiah Cobb and Loachapoka DB JC Hart.
Auburn High’s Keith Etheredge is the Alabama head coach this year.
The squad includes 16 players who have already committed to play collegiately at an SEC school. Twenty-four of the 40 players have committed to Power 5 schools, and 11 are still uncommitted.
The AHSACDA All-Star Selection Committee selected 40 seniors from nominations submitted by member school coaches at a meeting last week at the AHSAA Office.
“We would like to thank the selection committee for doing their due diligence in picking this year’s team,” said AHSADCA Director Brandon Dean. “Picking from some such a deep talent pool was not an easy task. We believe this is an extraordinarily talented and high character group of student-athletes who will be outstanding representatives of their schools and communities. We look forward to competing against Mississippi in Mobile this December, on the campus of the University of South Alabama.”
Among the other players selected to the Alabama roster are Clemson commits Christopher Vizzina and Peter Woods, the Carver-Montgomery due of Qua Russaw and James Smith, Hueytown QB Earl Woods and Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa QB Ethan Crawford.
