Young Social Media Sensation Visits Tuscaloosa For Football Camp
The University of Alabama football program is full swing into summer camp season. The Tide coaches have held camps throughout the summer for young football players eager to show off their talent and get a taste of Alabama's championship culture.
Last week Alabama welcomed in the No. 1 third grade player in the country in Madden San Miguel.
San Miguel is from Frisco, TX., and is already an internet sensation with over 250,000 Instagram followers. He, reportedly, stands at 4-foot-8 and weighs 88 pounds and plays both running back and safety for his youth football team.
San Miguel earned the nickname "Baby Gronk" due to carrying would-be tacklers around at recess. The class of 2031 prospect has already earned so much notoriety that he appeared on NFL Network's 'Total Access' to talk about football and his career aspirations.
Alabama is not the only school San Miguel is camping at this summer. According to posts on his Instagram he is also visiting Ole Miss, LSU, Oklahoma State and Texas in the month of June.
Not only did San Miguel attend camp and meet with Nick Saban but he also was able to workout with former Crimson Tide wide receiver Christion Jones ahead of the camp.
San Miguel has a long way to go to earn Division I scholarship offers but he is already getting major attention from the football world.
Will Nick Saban still be coaching at Alabama when San Miguel is ready to play college football?
