Three years later, Will Anderson’s gamble is paying off with the legendary Crimson Tide career

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Will Anderson Jr. took a chance and committed Alabama. He didn’t grow up as a Crimson Tide fan and was from the state of Georgia. But after watching Alabama and Nick Saban win five national championships and send countless players to the NFL, he wanted to know what made Alabama so good.

He quickly learned his first semester as a freshly enrolled spring freshman after graduating from the infamous Alabama fourth quarter program.

“It’s probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Anderson said. “And I got on my knees when Coach Saban called us and said, ‘Damn, that’s why Alabama is so good. That’s why they’re so great. That’s why the players are where they are in life, the stuff they do.’ And it changed my whole mindset when I came on campus.”
