Chris Black traveling to T-town
"The season is going pretty good," said Chris Black. "We have had some real big tests, but it's really going to turn up a notch for us. We play Ribault this week at home.
"I have been doing good. I have been getting a lot of double and triple team coverages. We have a lot of good receivers on our team though. I am trying to get used to it, but I get frustrated a little bit."
Black will attend the Tide's SEC opener this weekend in Tuscaloosa against Arkansas.
"I am going up there this weekend," he said. "It's going to be a test for us. It's something I definitely am looking forward to seeing. I am really looking forward to getting up there and see how well we do."
Black plans to return to Tuscaloosa in October for his official visit when the Tide hosts Tennessee. He also plans to attend the LSU game in November.
The Alabama coaching staff is keeping in contact on a regular basis.
"I talk to coach Pruitt, coach Groh and coach Saban," Black said. "I talk to coach Saban about every other week. They are just wanting to keep in touch. Coach Saban is fired up about me coming there. Coach Groh came to our game a few weeks ago."
Black is an early enrollee and discussed his excitement about joining Alabama's practice this spring.
"I am definitely excited about it," he said. "It's a chance for me to have an opportunity to get acclimated to the system. I feel like if I work hard enough I can go in there and compete for a starting position."
Black has remained at home for the other Alabama games, but he has watched closely with optimism.
"I watched their game against Penn State and North Texas," he said. "I also saw a little bit of the Kent State game. They definitely have a strong defense. The whole team looks good. I expect them to be in the national championship."
