Alvin Kamara, the AJC’s Mr. Football for 2013, announced on Twitter that he was transferring from Alabama last weekend.
It’s still early, but Kamara has already generated some interest.
Clemson, Oklahoma State, UCLA and Arizona have put out feelers about Kamara, according to a person close to the situation.
“One thing now being looked at is whether or not he can enroll at another school for this semester. It may be too late. If so, then he’ll look at doing that in the summer.”
The former Norcross High School running back signed with Alabama over UGA last February. He got off to a rough start with the Crimson Tide, undergoing knee surgery in preseason practice, and then being suspended at least twice from the team during the season.
According to multiple reports, Kamara was granted a release to transfer to any non-SEC school.
Kamara could still play at an SEC school but he would have to attend a junior college to do that.
He could also be eligible to play next season if he decided to enroll at an FCS school (formerly NCAA Div. I-AA).
If Kamara transfers to another FBS school, he will have to sit out one season due to NCAA rules, unless he makes a successful hardship appeal.
