According to Aaron Suttles of Yea Alabama, UA’s NIL collective, former Michigan defensive back Keon Sabb has committed to play for Kalen DeBoer at Alabama this fall. Let's break down the newest transfer for the Crimson Tide.



About Keon Sabb


Sabb entered the transfer portal on Feb. 16th after coach Jim Harbaugh left Michigan to become the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers. Sabb was a four-star prospect out of IMG Academy and has three remaining years of eligibility.


In his two years at Michigan, Sabb played in 18 games recording 28 total tackles and 2 interceptions. He started in the national championship game where he accumulated 6 tackles and broke up two passes.



Sabb's impact on the tide


Sabb is a much-needed pick-up for the Tide who lost eight defensive backs to the portal including stand-out freshman Caleb Downs. With Kool-Aid McKinstry and Terrion Arnold also leaving for the NFL, defensive back is a position of great need for Alabama, making this pick-up that much better. With the new regime in Tuscaloosa, Sabb is a player with experience at a strong Power 5 school who can bring that experience with him while still maintaining underclassman status, making him a great asset. He will excel quickly and provide an immediate boost.
