Alabama Adds 2022 In-State Tight End as Preferred Walk On
The Alabama Crimson Tide continues to add in-state talent to its 2022 roster. Tight end Peyton Fox of Briarwood Christian School announced on his social media accounts that he will be accepting a Preferred Walk On offer from the University of Alabama.
Fox is the third in-state product to accept a PWO offer in recent weeks, following Jack Standeffer of Tuscaloosa Academy and Cade Ott Carruth of Hewitt-Trussville. Fox had recently reported scholarship offers from Sewanee and Birmingham Southern but opted to take the PWO at Alabama.
Briarwood Christian School went 10-2 in Fox's senior year and made the Class 5A 2nd round of the AHSAA Playoffs.
Next College Student Athlete lists Fox as 6-foot-4, 225 pounds. His Hudl highlights show an aggressive H-back type player. He's a willing blocker and an able pass catcher. Fox will be an interesting addition to the walk on roster, in particular with the addition of new tight ends coach Joe Cox.
