Up until today’s practice, the University of Alabama had been blessed with clear skies for fall camp. There was no such luck on the fifth day of practice though, as clouds rolled in bringing rumbles of thunder with them. Despite the threat of rain the practice began and was still occurring outdoors at the end of the media viewing period.
Linebacker Tim Williams stood out during drills, and he was heard being praised multiple times by outside linebackers coach Tosh Lupoi during the viewing period. The group was led through footwork drills by Ryan Anderson, Williams and Christian Miller.
