Julio Jones was one of Nick Saban's first big-time recruits at Alabama. You-tube clips of his high school days and reports of his un-humanlike speed led to ridiculously high expectations for the kid.
He lived up to those expectations in his freshman year ('08). Last season he was the top receiver on the team, but only had 596 yards receiving and four TDs.
Part of that is because Alabama had the Heisman winner, Mark Ingram, at running back. And, of course, Ingram's backup, Trent Richardson, was one of the SEC's top freshmen.
