Alabama hosted its Junior Day over the weekend, with players from the 2025 recruiting class visiting Tuscaloosa and spending some time on campus.
One player who attended was the son of an NFL legend and Hall of Famer.
Per Hank South of 247Sports, Alabama hosted Jerome Bettis Jr., son of the former Pittsburgh Steelers running back:

Jerome Bettis Jr. likely won’t be getting the nickname of “The Bus” like his father, as he’s a 6-2, 175-pound receiver instead of a powerful running back.
Bettis plays for Woodward Academy in Atlanta. He has yet to be rated by the major recruiting services, but it’s a good sign for his future that a team like Alabama is taking an interest in him.
