Not only is the first-year Alabama lead man, Kalen Deboer, hard at work at spring practice, but he is also working the recruiting trail. Deboer is proving doubters wrong who said he would not be able to recruit the South. DeBoer is doing this by landing his third commit in four days.

Who is Luke Metz?

Luke Metz, a three-star linebacker out of Mill Creek High School in Georgia, has committed to the Crimson Tide. Metz stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 220 pounds. Metz played inside linebacker, outside linebacker and edge rusher his junior year, showcasing his versatility.

Metz had 32 total offers and chose Alabama over Michigan, Ole Miss, Tennessee and LSU to name a few.

Scouting Luke Metz

Luke Metz was named an All-Region and All-County player for his performance over his junior year at Mill Creek High School in Gwinnett County Georgia.

Metz who primarily plays linebacker also saw some time on the offensive side of the ball as a tight end during his 2023 season. Metz was responsible for 51 total tackles, 14 quarterback hurries, 5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble on the defensive side of the ball while recording 4 catches for 41 yards on offense.

Luke is a high-motor ball hawk who puts himself in a position to make plays on the ball in both the running and passing games, while also being a threat to the quarterback in the backfield. This versatility gives Metz a lot of potential not only in the multiple ways he can be used on the field but also in how much he can improve as a player with the right development.

What Luke Metz's Commitment Means for the Tide

Luke Metz brings in size and versatility to this new defensive scheme in Tuscaloosa. Kane Womack uses his linebackers in a variety of ways, making Metz's ability to play multiple variations of linebacker, a great fit for Womack's system. Metz is a solid player that should fit well into the new defensive scheme at Alabama and will be at worst a rotational player by year two, possibly starting, depending on development. While he might not be an immediate star on defense at the collegiate level, expect Metz to be a major contributor on special teams in year one.

Metz becomes the Alabama Crimson Tide's eighth commit for 2025 joining LB Darrell Johnson, WR Derick Smith, RB Anthony Rogers, DL Antonio Coleman, ATH Myles Johnson, ATH Zymear Smith and LB Abduall Sanders JR.
