Caleb Tremblay, junior college defensive tackle American River Community College in Sacramento, California, returned from his visit to Tuscaloosa. Tremblay is a fresh name on Alabama’s recruiting board after a great performance in front of the coaching staff.
“It was my first time to Alabama,” said Tremblay. “It was an unofficial visit. I arrived on Friday. The camp was on Saturday. I left on Sunday. I didn’t go to the school on Sunday. I was just there on Friday and Saturday.
“The first day I toured everything. I saw all the athletic facilities. I saw the campus on the golf cart. It was super nice.”
The next day was a little more fast-paced as he met with the Tide’s head coach and hit the field.
“Saturday, I met with the head coach, Coach Saban,” he said. “I talked to him for a little bit. I did a little work-out. They wanted to see how I moved. They wanted to see if my ability was matching my highlight tape and see if I could pass rush, see if I could move.
“Being down there you can see why they are so good. They have everything set up. It’s really exciting. It was exciting to get the offer from them.”
Tremblay, originally from Vintage High School in Napa, California, decided to take a year off after graduating from high school. He later enrolled at American River Community College. He has earned 15 offers and will graduate in December.
The 6-foot-5, 276-pound lineman has visited Alabama and Cal. He will visit Colorado and Washington. Bremlay isn’t ready to reveal favorites, but visits are usually an indicator of schools of interest.
“I really like them,” Bremlay said of the Crimson Tide. “I can’t say where they are in terms of favorites on my list, but I really like it there.
“I like the people who are around the facilities. Everyone who works around the University of Alabama are really great people. I felt really welcomed over there. The facilities are awesome. The coaches are great.”
