Kool-Aid McKinstry listed as CFB's top CB heading into 2023

Kool-Aid McKinstry has always stood out from his peers, especially on the football field.

Coming out of high school, McKinstry was the top-rated cornerback in the 2021 recruiting class,

 and has been nothing but a stud for the Alabama Crimson Tide since arriving in Tuscaloosa

McKinstry earned a role in the Tide secondary as a true freshman where he received Freshman All-SEC honors,

 and saw meaningful snaps in nearly every game.

Last season is when Kool-Aid really took over, as he earned first-team All-SEC honors and was recognized by Pro Football Focus as a first-team All-American corner.

Along with his defensive tasks, McKinstry also returned punts for the Tide.
