Tenpenny returns from Tuscaloosa

Altee Tenpenny, National 100 running back from North Little Rock, Ark., returned to Alabama for the second time this season. He was offered by the Tide in July following his camp performance. He talked about the return visit to the Capstone.



"The visit was great," said Altee Tenpenny. "Of course I have been there before. I saw the facilities again. This was the first time my dad got to visit.

"The coaches took my dad around for the first time. My parents enjoyed everything. The coaches treated us very well."

The game was a defensive slugfest between the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers.

"It was a close one," Tenpenny said of the game. "I thought Alabama could have pulled it out. The atmosphere was crazy. It was like they were playing in the national championship, but it was a regular season game. The stadium was rocking.

"I spoke to the coaches for a while. They were just checking to see how I was doing. They said they hope I can return to play in the playoffs or in the championship game this year."

Tenpenny tells what stands out most about the University of Alabama.

"I like they give it to their RBs 20-30 times a game," he said. "The coaches are disciplined. They go hard for four quarters. They have great academics."

The elite junior prospect broke his ankle during the first game of the season. He is hoping to learn good news from his Dr. on Tuesday to start running and cutting again.

Tenpenny has scholarship offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
