Former LSU standout five-star cornerback Eli Ricks just recently announced he would be leaving Baton Rouge and transferring to Tuscaloosa. Now, just days after his announcement, he is in Tuscaloosa suited up and interacting with his new teammates.

Ricks was a 2020 All-American defensive back and managed to tally 31 tackles and five interceptions in two seasons, but has suffered minor injuries that set him back a bit.

In the video, Ricks is seen wearing Alabama gear and his new teammates are encouraging him to jump into the pool at the training facility.

Ricks won’t be able to play with the Crimson Tide until 2022, but will certainly be a major component to the Alabama secondary moving forward.
