Here are the Alabama high school football recruits we're watching in AHSAA Super 7

·5 min read

Alabama keeps growing as a hotbed for college football recruits, and many of them are playing at the AHSAA Super 7 state championships.

The Class 7A game has the most FBS and Power Five recruits, but the other six games feature notable prospects to know before they enter college.

Here's a look at all the players in the Super 7 with offers from FBS programs.

Class 7A, Wednesday, 7 p.m.

Jeremiah Alexander, Thompson, Sr.: Alexander, who is 6-foot-2, 235 pounds, is the state's top class of 2022 recruit, No. 17 nationally and committed to Alabama. The five-star edge defender is strong, but his speed rush in passing scenarios is simply game-changing.

Jeremiah Alexander, a five star defensive end prospect from Alabaster, Alabama, plans to visit Clemson.

Trequon Fegans, Thompson, Sr.: Fegans is a four-star cornerback for the defending back-to-back state champions after transferring from Oxford. Fegans is an Alabama commit and part of a loaded defense and secondary. He has also returned punts.

Tony Mitchell, Thompson, Jr.: Mitchell, the No. 1 in-state recruit in the class of 2023, lines up opposite of Fegans. He's built like a Power Five, SEC cornerback and is rarely tested and 6-2 and 180 pounds.

Peter Woods, Thompson, Jr.: Woods is a disruptor like Alexander but packs even more physicality and plays tough. The junior is the No. 20 recruit in the nation and No. 3 in Alabama. He is not a player a quarterback wants to see with a clear rush.

JQ Hardaway, Central-Phenix City, Sr.: The Cincinnati quarterback commit leads an offense averaging 43.4 points per game and even more during the playoffs.

Tomarrion Parker, Central-Phenix City, Jr.: The 6-4, 250-pound defensive lineman had at least two sacks and a fumble recovery touchdown in Central's semifinal win over Auburn. Parker is the nation's No. 83 and state of Alabama's No. 9 recruit in 2023.

Central-Phenix City's Karmello English (2) snags a pass in the first quarter as Prattville's AP Coleman (28) tries to drag him down for a tackle.

Karmello English, Central-Phenix City, Jr.: The 5-11, 175-pound receiver released a top eight featuring Auburn, Alabama, Cincinnati and five more Power Five schools. The junior can make contested catches and make defenders miss. English is the No. 111 recruit in the nation and No. 10 in the state.

Trevor Hardy, Thompson, Sr.: Another Thompson FBS secondary recruit, the Memphis safety commit lined up a lot at cornerback early this season. The big-bodied prospect showed good coverage technique.

Ryan Peppins, Thompson, Sr.: Peppins decommitted from Western Kentucky last week and choose Utah after catching three touchdowns against Hoover in the semifinals.

Conner Harrell, Thompson, Sr.: The reigning 7A player of the year and North Carolina quarterback commit was forced out of last season's state championship because of injury.

Jaylen Ward, Thompson, Sr.: The Middle Tennessee State receiver commit is another big body Harrell can target. Ward is also a good blocker.

Jax Van Zandt, Thompson, Sr.: The North Texas linebacker commit is a smart, patient tackler in the middle of Thompson's stout defense.

David Moultry, Thompson, Sr.: Another good receiver who does a lot of his work after the catch. Moultry has offers from Air Force, Navy and Army.

Anquon Fegans, Thompson, Fr.: The young secondary player already has offers from Georgia, Miami and more.

Class 6A, Friday, 7 p.m.

Marquarius White, Clay-Chalkville, Sr.: At just 5-10, the Tennessee receiver commit is fast and shifty in the open field in Clay-Chalkville's creative offense.

Clay-Chalkville's quarterback Khalib Johnson (2) is stopped by Park Crossing's Renardo Smith (90) at Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Ala., on Friday September 6, 2019.

Khalib Johnson, Clay-Chalkville, Sr.: The 6-2 Louisville quarterback commit has led Clay-Chalkville to average 48.6 points per game, the second-highest scoring offense in the state.

Jordan McCants, Clay-Chalkville, Sr.: Has deep ball skills for No. 1 ranked Clay-Chalkville and versatility to make defenders miss after short receptions.

De'Andre Coleman, Hueytown, Sr.: The 6-2, 200-pound Coastal Carolina receiver commit had nine receptions for more than 100 yards receiving and one touchdown in Hueytown's 44-16 win in the semifinals. Coleman is physically imposing and has also scored at running back and quarterback.

Class 5A, Thursday, 7 p.m.

Khurtiss Perry, Pike Road, Sr.: Formerly at Park Crossing, the four-star defensive lineman helped Pike Road to its first state championship. The No. 4 recruit in-state took visits to Alabama and Auburn in November and said in October that he'll make a commitment after the state championships.

Quinshon Judkins, Pike Road, Sr.: The Ole Miss running back commit takes direct snaps and reads defenses well before picking his holes to burst through. He was on on Auburn's campus during the season, though, after committing.

Anthony Rogers, Pike Road, Fr.: Rogers is a speedy freshman with offers from Georgia, Auburn and Penn State. He's a dynamic kick returner who can also break runs of more than 50 yards. Defenders need to get the 5-8 prospect down and contain him early.

Demarcus Lacey, Pleasant Grove, Sr.: With offers from Troy, UAB and Liberty, Lacey rushed for 1,254 yards and 17 touchdowns in the regular season and is one of the top scoring threats at the Super 7.

Anez Cooper, Pleasant Grove, Sr.: Cooper, a 6-6, 350-pound offensive line recruit, received an offer from Auburn this season.
