GLASSBORO - Keon Sabb committed to Clemson at Landmark Americana in Glassboro on July 17, 2021.

The former Glassboro High School and Williamstown High School standout never played at Memorial Stadium.

Former Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, who recruited Sabb to Clemson, became the head coach at Oklahoma. Sabb decided to seek another opportunity and committed to Michigan. He appeared in four games as a freshman in 2022. In 2023, Sabb filled in as safety Rod Moore rehabbed an injury. He made his first collegiate start against East Carolina and started a few games before Moore returned.

"A lot has changed," Sabb said. "I went to Michigan (and spent) my freshman year there. Learned a lot from the older guys. Sophomore year, I started to play a little bit more. The first five games I started and then the older guys came back (from injury).

Sabb started in the National Championship against Washington. He recorded a game-high two passes defensed and six tackles in the Wolverines' 34-13 triumph. Michigan outscored the Huskies 17-3 in the second half.

"I played probably my best college game in that game," Sabb said. "That was a really good opportunity for me in that game on that stage playing in front of all those people."

He concluded the campaign with 28 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh departed from Ann Arbor to become the Los Angeles Chargers next head coach. Harbaugh won 86 games in nine seasons and led the Wolverines to three conference titles.

"He definitely set the culture since Day One," Sabb said. "I think that carried us to the National Championship with just how deep and strong our culture was."

Sabb entered the transfer portal and relocated again. Just three days after entering the portal, Sabb committed to Alabama. The former IMG Academy (Fla.) standout was highly sought after once he put his name into the portal.

"I think it really made sense for me to explore my options," Sabb said. "I ended up with Alabama with some people I already knew, coaches wise and players wise. I think it was an amazing fit for me, and it's going great up to this point."

Decked out in crimson red, Sabb returned to Glassboro to host his first annual youth football camp at South Delsea Drive Park last Saturday. The free camp welcomed participants ages 5 to 14. Sabb funded the event and provided campers with a free T-shirt and lunch. The camp started at 9 am and concluded at 2 pm.
