While Josh McMillon is technically in his final year of eligibility in Alabama, Nick Saban hopes to have the red-haired senior at linebacker back for another year with the Crimson Tide.
Alabama will provide a medical redshirt for McMillon, which was scheduled to be a start for the tide before suffering a season-ending knee injury in August.
"We will definitely request it and then at least he will choose whether or not to do it," Saban said. … Josh is a really mature, good leader. The school is important to him. And I'm sure he'll make a good decision by coming back. We would love to have him. "
