Derrick Henry asked how much he got paid to go to Alabama
Alabama often gets accused of paying recruits to join Nick Saban’s program but the way Derrick Henry tells it, the Crimson Tide can guarantee something very few schools even have a hope of attaining.
You’ve probably heard this stat before but it holds true to this day, every recruiting class Saban has signed at Alabama has won at least one national championship during the coach’s 14-year run at the school.
That’s the currency Henry was “paid” to come to Alabama, he said recently during an appearance on the Barstool podcast Bussin’ With The Boys.
What a great answer.
