That move potentially creates more depth issues in an already inexperienced secondary which lost three starters and several reserves. But Saban said he’s not losing sleep over the departure.
Woodson played in 12 games as a freshman, mostly on special teams.
“I don’t care how many players we have,” Saban said. “We have a lot of good players on this team, and I would rather move somebody from another position to play where we don’t have enough players than to allow somebody not to do the right things and be involved. I don’t think we do anyone any good if we do that.”
The secondary got a boost with junior college transfer DeQuan Menzie’s recovery from a torn Achilles tendon sustained during a spring pickup basketball game.
