Alabama Lands 17 All-SEC Prep Team Phil Steele



Phil Steel’s annual college football magazines will soon be on shelves across the country, and the veteran analyst loves Alabama ahead of the 2022 season. In addition to having Crimson Tide topped his Power Poll poll, 17 Alabama players were selected for the All-SEC team.

The first-team squad included quarterback Bryce Young, fullback Jammer Gibbs, Jermaine Burton, defensive line Justin Iboigbe, midfielders Will Anderson and Henry Too and defensive linebackers Eli Rex and Jordan Battle. As for the second unit, Cameron Lato made a tight finish, offensive lineman Emile Equiure and kicker Will Richard cut offs, while linebackers Byron Young and linebackers Dallas Turner and Gibbs (this time as kick-off returners) were selected for the third team. Wide receiver Tyler Harrell and defensive backs Kool-Aid McKinstry and DeMarcco Hellams rounded out the roster as options for the fourth team.

Nine players from Crimson Tide also made Steele’s All-American team, including four first-team players in Young, Anderson, Ricks and Battle. To’o To’o and Gibbs (kick-off return) were featured on the second team, Burton and Ekiyor got the third team’s nods and Latu was the fourth team’s honor. Steele’s four first-team picks were more from Alabama than any other school.
