Alabama isn’t one to be left behind as coaches use increasingly unique outreach to connect with would-be recruits. Nick Saban and co. are tapping into their inner superhero geek to inspire their latest outreach, and it appears to be having its desired effect.

It’s a memorable image, and one which apparently got the attention of White quite quickly, as you can see from his comment in the tweet he posted showcasing the artwork.
