Alabama football team’s current push for multiple wide receivers in 2025

The Alabama state football club is hoping to sign a strong wide receiver class for 2025 with Keelon Russell as the new quarterback.

The Crimson Tide have commitments from several young players who have the potential to play wide receivers: Derick Smith, Lotzeir Brooks and Zymear Smith. Alabama continues to be in the running for some of the best wideouts in the country.

Here’s a look at these recruits:

Caleb Cunningham

Cunningham is expected to officially visit Alabama football this weekend. The Mississippi product is a five-star wide receiver who attended Choctaw County High School in Mississippi. He is currently considering Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and others.

At 6’3″ and 195 pounds, the junior is a big-frame athletic talent who can run. His speed, size and ability to go up and knock the football out of the air make him a tough opponent for any high school corner.

Kaliq Lockett

Lockett just returned from an official visit to Alabama and plans to announce a commitment after his official visit to Texas this weekend. The Tide’s new quarterback, Keelon Russell, is currently actively courting Lockett, and the Tide appears to be moving up in recruiting the five-star player.

The 6’1″, 175-pound player thrives in contested catch situations as he is able to go up and catch the football while showing great ball skills and concentration. He also shows the ability to be a deceptive route runner and make plays after the catch.

Derek Meadows

Meadows will officially visit Alabama this weekend. The five-star student from Bishop Gorman High School is considering Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan and Notre Dame.

The 6’6″, 195-pound player is obviously a huge target that most defenders can’t handle. His combination of athleticism, size, and ability to maintain control while running routes make him a really tough opponent. He’s also impressively quick for a guy his size, which allows him to make up ground after the catch.

Travis Smith Jr.

Similar to Lockett, Smith recently officially visited Alabama. He committed for July 13 and is considering Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and others. Alabama appeared to have made a push for Smith over the weekend.

“It was incredible,” Smith said after his visit to Touchdown Alabama. “I was the only receiver on an official visit this weekend, so it felt very exclusive. My family and I had a great time. I spent a lot of time with the staff, especially Coach Shepherd, a high-energy coach who knows how to produce NFL-caliber players at the position.”

The Georgia product is a big wide receiver at 6’4″ and 200 pounds. His size and athleticism allow him to thrive in jump ball situations and when he has to catch in a crowd. He also runs his routes with control.
