Jermaine Burton and Tyler Harrell were transfer portal additions at Alabama to fill a bit of a void at wide receiver for the Crimson Tide. If there’s a position of concern for Alabama, it’s wide receiver, even though both players are experienced from Georgia and Louisville.

Nick Saban offered an early assessment of the new additions, who are expected to be the main targets for Heisman Trophy candidate Bryce Young, and play key roles in the Alabama offense, along with sophomore Ja’Corey Brooks.

“Tyler has been sort of in and out a little bit to this point,” Saban said Sunday morning. “He has been able to practice on a daily basis but not 100%. I do think that he has shown that he has a lot of ability. We just need to get it channeled in the right direction so that we can use him in a way that’s going to be most productive for him and for us.”

Former Georgia receiver Jermaine Burton “has played with the most consistency” at his position while noting he was there for spring practice as well.

In terms of depth, Aaron Anderson of New Orleans, a highly-touted freshman, is out with a minor knee injury, Saban said.
