MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - As he saw his first action Saturday, taking hand-offs from QB A.J. McCarron, T.J. Yeldon appeared to be everything Alabama could have hoped for, and more.
The product of Daphne shined against No. 8 Michigan and was a big part the Tide's 41-14 blowout.
The freshman running back rushed for 111 yards on 11 carries. Yeldon and fellow back Eddie Lacey (9 carries, 35 yards) both had scores in the game. Yeldon's came on the goal line icing a 41-14 victory over the Wolverines in the fourth quarter.
There was a lot of talk about Bama's running back situation in the time leading up to this 2012 season, because the team lost Trent Richardson to the NFL.
As a senior at Daphne, Yeldon was widely considered to be one of the top running back prospects in the country. His college career started with some controversy after he switched his commitment from Auburn to Alabama.
It's still early yet, but the combination of Lacey, Yeldon and Jalston Fowler (8 carries, 67 yards) has certainly eased some minds about the Tide's prospects.
