New Alabama Football Coach Kalen DeBoer Hints at Roster Changes Before 2024 Season

New coach Kalen DeBoer made clear the Alabama football roster is in store for some more change at some point before the 2024 season.

DeBoer joined WJOX on Tuesday morning and shared the Crimson Tide still has room to add to its roster.

“We do have a couple spots,” DeBoer said. “You naturally keep your eyes and ears open for what those are going to be. We’ve got to go through our spring ball and continue to evaluate our team. I think there are some good young players who will step up and do a great job. We do have a couple extra scholarships, not a lot, but we do have a couple extra scholarships still available that we can utilize when that time comes.”

The spring transfer portal window for players to enter will run from April 15 through April 30 after spring practices. That will provide a new crop of players for the Crimson Tide to pursue if it so chooses.

DeBoer has been plenty active in the portal, though. He has brought in quarterback Austin Mack, center Parker Brailsford, receiver Germie Bernard, tight end Josh Cuevas and safety Keon Sabb. Those players are in addition to transfers Nick Saban had already added in defensive back Domani Jackson, offensive lineman Naquil Betrand and defensive lineman LT Overton.

“We love who we have here,” DeBoer said. “Yesterday just being in the indoor going through our Fourth Quarter workout, it was electric.”
