Alabama came up just short of winning a second consecutive national championship this past Monday. A final score of 18-33 meant the Georgia Bulldogs were crowned champions, but the Crimson Tide are expected to be the betting favorites heading in the 2022 season.

One reason for those lofty expectations is the talented roster that will be available.

Alabama is returning several key leaders from the 2021 group, including Bryce Young, Will Anderson, Henry To’o To’o and Jordan Battle. Plus, the additions from the transfer portal, as well as the 2022 recruiting class, means the Tide will once again be in the mix.

Below, you’ll find a breakdown of which players are expected to return to Tuscaloosa, as well as those who will be leaving for one reason or another. Remember, the goal will be to get back down to 85 scholarship players by the end of this.
