Brandon Hill has dropped 16 pounds down to 390 arriving. Says he has a ways to go.
Hopes to play tackle but could end up at guard
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
... Wants to get to 350, by spring if possible
Well if he plays guard who the hell is gonna play tackle?
Good luck big fella!

At weighing 390 he can actually fill out both spots. Gives Saban room to bring in another skill player.
Does he project better at guard?
Only if he can't get his skinny ankles back!
So he arrived at 406?

You math good!!!
Jeesshhh, he sounds like the OL version of Terrance Cody.
Two guys who get overlooked in this class are Brandon Hill and Darius Paige.
I think both have NFL upside and could end up starters faster than most realize if they commit in the weight room (and classroom in Paige's case).
Looks like we're going to have to widen our splits relative to the size of our offensive linemen.
Agreed! I guess I've forgotten what exactly a T looks like! Cyrus is one for sure, but dang Robinson and hill could play tackle for my team! (G)
Version 1.0 worked out. So, sounds good to me.
Y'all are forgetting about Leon Brown, Brandon Greene and Austin Shepherd. Hell, I think Grant Hill could slide in at RT in the future if needed.

I'll add to this that I think Brandon Greene has impressed the staff enough that a true LT was not something we had to have. Greene has incredibly long arms and was actually the opposite of Hill in that he needed to add weight. Look for Greene to take over for Cyko in 2014. I think Hill uses this year as a RS year to get his weight correct (remember Fluker was over 400lbs when he showed up and got down to 345 or 350 in order to play his after a redshirt year).
At any of those weights it will take minutes to run around him and surely no one will run over him. :)
Shades of D.J. Fluker.
He has 4 years to play 4 correct?
