Julian Lewis, a quarterback from the 2026 class, announced via Twitter that he would be in attendance for this weekend's Iron Bowl. The Georgia native has already received over 20 offers from programs across the country. The Tide officially offered Lewis in June.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban doesn't often extend offers to underclassmen unless he has seen enough to extend them an actual offer. That appears to be the case for Lewis.
Lewis is a freshman at Carrollton High School in Carrollton, Georgia. This season Lewis has thrown for 3,006 yards and 37 touchdowns. Not to mention, he is competing at the highest classification in Georgia, where he's led his team to a perfect 12-0 record.
The Tide are enamored by the talent of this young man and have made that clear. It will be interesting to see how this weekend's visit goes for Lewis as he is able to make an unofficial visit for one of the biggest rivalries in college football.
Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow Lewis' recruitment as well as other Alabama football recruiting news.
