All eyes are on Julio, on and off the field

Quick quiz. Name the most famous football player coached by Nick Saban, college division.
Plaxico Burress?
Nah. Saban coached him at Michigan State, long before the Barney Fife of hip-hop shot to TMZ-style celebrity by shooting himself.
JaMarcus Russell?
He did become the top overall pick in the NFL draft, but the BMOC QB from Mobile, who started his college career under Saban at LSU, finished under Les Miles.
Saban is still coaching the biggest name he’s ever coached.

It’s Julio Jones.
