Darius Paige

Darius Paige has had an up-and-down offseason based on rumors, a transfer and academic challenges - but make no mistake, the guy can play. FOX Sports NEXT was on hand for the Alabama commits latest game, and captured some examples of what he may be like at the next level.

Whether it is on offense or defense, Darius Paige is getting a big push at the line for Foley (Ala.) High during his senior season. The Alabama commit, and former Pensacola (Fla.) Washington standout, was at it again on Friday night against Dothan (Ala.) Northview.

He has excellent strength at the point of attack, good drive once engaged and he is a finisher at the end of plays. Paige displays solid speed and lateral movement for his size, as well.

At this time the three-star talent projects best at the defensive end spot in a 3-4 scheme, though his size may determine where he begins play next fall. Currently, he's listed at 6-foot-4, 292 pounds.

Paige helped Foley get some big stops on defense and helped plow the way on offense against Northview on Friday, so take a look at his efforts below. Recommended Stories
