Alabama redshirt junior to take part in Senior Day ahead of likely jump to the NFL
Terrell Lewis isn’t a senior for Alabama, but he’ll be participating in the festivities of Senior Day on Saturday.
That’s because Lewis, a redshirt junior, is likely going to be done with the Crimson Tide after the season. He’s expected to go to the NFL next year, per AL.com’s Matt Zenitz, which means the linebacker will only have a few games left in his college career.
Alabama is honoring its seniors this Saturday when it hosts Western Carolina.
Lewis has been a key part of the Crimson Tide’s defense this season, totaling 30 tackles, six sacks and a fumble recovery. He had two sacks in each of Alabama’s wins over Texas A&M and Tennessee.
It’s been a bounce-back year for Lewis, who missed all of the 2018 season due to a torn ACL. He played in only three games in 2017 because of an elbow injury that kept him out until the final game of the regular season.
This year will surely help Lewis’ stock in the NFL draft as he’s proved he can stay healthy for a whole season.
Lewis will play what will likely be his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday as Alabama takes on Western Carolina at noon ET on ESPN.
