While Nick Saban stands tall among his peers when it comes to coaching, he does not do so literally — Alabama’s head football coach only checks in at a solid 5-foot-6-inches tall. Sometimes that revelation may be a shock or surprise to recruits, and today was one of those instances: four-star tight end Devonaire Clarington from Miami came across Saban and posted a pretty humorous tweet after he saw him:
Just seen Nick Saban.. his height does not meet my expectations but who cares #ROLLTIDE

I’m pretty sure that Saban is confident that his coaching abilities make up for his lack of height — I don’t think he’s worried about it too much. Thankfully, neither is Clarington — he’ll choose between Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, South Florida, and Miami.
