Watch Alabama commitments Chris Allen, Mac Jones work during Team USA football practice this week

ORLANDO, Fla. -- BamaMag was on hand this week as multiple Alabama commitments are taking part in representing the country as Team USA faces Canada for the North American Championship on Saturday. Here is a closer look.

Linebacker Chris Allen - Alabama commitment.

Quick Eval: Allen will play inside linebacker at Alabama and he checks most of those boxes against the run and as a pass-rusher. As evidenced here, coverage isn't his most natural strength although his length and athleticism allows for him to be able to improve as a zone defender if need be one day in Tuscaloosa. 

Quarterback Mac Jones - Alabama commitment.

Quick Eval: Jones hadn't thrown in quite some time so after a few morning tosses, he was back into a rhythm with good zip on the football. He showed accuracy more times than not and really excelled in between the hashes in both seven-on-seven and team settings, manipulating defensive backs with look-offs and movement away from the intended target. Jones has solid arm strength out near the numbers and he's willing to take a risk or two by trusting his power. 

The North American Championship Game, from ESPN's Wide World of Sports, will kickoff Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. EST. ESPN3 will carry the game.
