Alabama football has landed another top running back in the class of 2022 — this time from a rival's backyard.

Le'Veon Moss, a 6-foot, 190-pound prospect from Istrouma High in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, announced he has committed to the Crimson Tide on Sunday evening. Moss, the No. 6 running back in the nation by the 247Sports Composite, is Alabama's seventh commitment and first since defensive lineman Jaheim Oatis committed in April.

Moss is Alabama's second Louisiana commitment in the class of 2022 and the state's No. 4 prospect. LSU was the favorite in the 247Sports' crystal ball predictions.

Moss rushed for 265 yards and five touchdowns on 18 carries in a playoff game during a shortened 2020 season.
