Watch Alabama commitment B.J. Emmons dominate Thursday night

Alabama commitment B.J. Emmons shot up the recruiting rankings this month and backed it up in front of Scout cameras Thursday night during a five-touchdown performance.

Morganton (N.C. ) Freedom had to move its Friday night game up a day because of immenent rain, but it didn't slow Scout100 Alabama commitment B.J. Emmons much. Facing Newton (N.C.) Foard Thursday, he amassed more than 300 yards on less than 10 touches.

Finishing the night with 279 yards on eight carries, taking two of his first three more than 50 to the house, the four-star notched five scores in a decisive 47-7 win. Emmons added a 36-yard punt return on his only try and also brought back a second-half kickoff for a score but it was called back by penalty.
