Poe is a potential offensive lineman for 2024 offered by the Crimson Tide in November. He has a four star rating from multiple recruitment sites and is currently holding more than 15 D1 offers.
Alabama’s offensive line coach Eric Wolford has been in constant contact with Poe since November. Other Alabama employees have also spoken to Poe recently.
“It was great,” Poe told Touchdown Alabama. “We talk on the phone several times a week. Coach Saban stopped by the school the other day. I believe this is the second day someone has been on campus. I’m most likely to talk to coach Wolford. We write about different things several times a week.”
The Texas product said he respects Alabama’s football culture when he received an offer in November.
“Alabama has always been a school that my family and I followed, so this was a really big school,” Poe told Touchdown Alabama. “It’s a very solid program and a widely respected coaching staff. The culture is very strong and the pillars it is built on are amazing examples of how a program should be run.”
At 6ft 5 and 280 pounds, Poe is a multi-athlete. He has experience playing tackle and guard. Wolford told Poe he felt he was one of the best offensive linemen in the 2024 recruit class in November.
