Another week, another new Alabama football commitment, this time in-state defensive tackle Tim Keenan joining the fold. The Birmingham (Ala.) Ramsay standout pledged to the Crimson Tide on Saturday morning over Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, and UAB. Keenan is the fourth defensive lineman to join the class, joining forces with fellow in-stater Anquin Barnes, along with five-star defensive tackle Damon Payne and four-star defensive end Monkell Goodwine.

At 6-foot-2, 330 pounds, Keenan is rated the No. 22 defensive tackle and the No. 362 overall player in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Here is 247Sports’ evaluation of Keenan, via national director of scouting Barton Simmons:
“Wide, stout defensive tackle with limited height and length. Conditioning and body structure will be a focus at the college level. Predictably hard to move. Shows some good hand quickness when he wants to penetrate. Re-establishes the line of scrimmage consistently in high school. Appears to play with good effort for a bigger lineman. Commands attention on the interior. Sees through blockers to the football. Lack of length allows blockers to get into his body. Short area burst doesn’t flash. Very limited in terms of scheme and position. More development and conditioning could unveil a much more explosive athlete. Currently an early down defensive lineman at the Power Five level that needs college development to tap into NFL upside.”
