Alabama All-American Minkah Fitzpatrick

Minkah Fitzpatrick was a freshman All-American two seasons ago, then a national All-American last year. What can the junior DB out of Jersey City do to top that in his third season with the Tide?

Newy talks to Minkah about why he chose Alabama, who his favorite team was before accepting that scholarship and whether he can be the best DB in the nation this year.
