Breaking News: Alabama’s Kalen DeBoer Confirmed The Signing Of Another Talented DB via the portal…

After Kalen DeBoer hinted that Alabama may not be done adding to its secondary, the Crimson Tide picked up a commitment from King Mack.

Mack entered the transfer portal on May 2 after one year with Penn State. He made three tackles in 13 games, operating mostly on special teams. Mack is the fifth transfer defensive back of the offseason for the Tide. He likely adds depth behind returning leader Malachi Moore and Michigan transfer Keon Sabb

Mack announced his decision with a social media post on Friday afternoon. Mack was a four-star prospect and fourth-rated safety per 247Sports. He was the 57th-rated overall player available in the transfer portal. He attended Florida high school St. Thomas Aquinas in Miami. Mack’s uncle, Keith Ferguson, had a nine-year NFL career in the 1980s.

UA’s last three portal acquisitions for UA will all play in the secondary. Former Wake Forest defensive back will work with cornerback coach Mo Linguist. Mack and Kameron Howard (Chattanooga) will report to Colin Hitschler, who’s taken charge as the safeties coach. Alabama has welcomed 13 players via transfers since the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Since Nick Saban retired on Jan. 10, Alabama has lost 10 scholarship defensive backs. The most notable departures were Caleb Downs and Trey Amos. Moore will likely be UA’s lone returning starter in the secondary next fall. Alabama was efficient in the spring portal window, regaining Kadyn Proctor and a new kicker in Graham Nicholson.
