Baldwin was a four-star recruit in Alabama's 2016 class, and he was the No. 2 overall junior college transfer in the country, according to 247Sports. After enrolling in January, Baldwin was expected to compete for Alabama's starting right tackle spot, replacing Dominick Jackson, who graduated after last season.
Instead, Baldwin didn't live up to the billing, and saw himself fall down the depth chart during spring practice. When Alabama played its spring game, it wasn't Baldwin starting at right tackle, but it was Jonah Williams. He was a five-star recruit in Alabama's 2016 class, and was ranked as the No. 2 offensive tackle in the class.
Baldwin, who is from Connecticut, played at ASA College last year, a junior college in Brooklyn, New York.
