Alabama Offers 8th Grade Linebacker Jesus Machado From Florida

Class of 2020 outside linebacker/defensive end Jesus Machado of Florida received a verbal scholarship from Alabama today, as first reported by his high school coach Dennis Marroquin.

Machado, who played varsity football as an 8th grader this year at Champagnat Catholic, is closing in on half a dozen offers before becoming a true 9th grader.  Last summer, as a 7th grader, he was ranked as a top-10 prospect in the Elite101 for the class of 2020.  Today he was offered by Alabama coach Mario Cristobal.

Alabama is the latest offer, but before that was Michigan State, West Virginian, North Carolina State and Iowa State.

Look for Machado later this summer in the Florida/Georgia Future Stars Game, played at IMG Academy.
