Less than a weak after the dismissal from the Georgia football program due to a pair of felony charges, it appears the highly-talented but troublesome running back, Isiah Crowell has found a new collegiate home.
According to UGAsports.com, Crowell will be transferring to Alabama State, a FCS-level program located in Montgomery, Alabama. The website reported that Crowell would be enrolling at the school Wednesday, although, when contacted by CFT, an ASU athletic official refused to confirm or deny the development.
Because Alabama State is an FCS school, Crowell will be eligible to play during the 2012 season, instead of sitting out the required year if he transferred to another FBS school.
According to Collegefootballtalk.com, “Crowell was arrested very early last Friday morning and charged with carrying a weapon in a school zone, having an altered ID mark and charge of possessing/carrying a concealed weapon. The first two charges are felonies, the latter a misdemeanor. School policy called for an immediate suspension, although head coach Mark Richt trumped that directive several hours later by dismissing the back”.
Crowell was named SEC Freshman of the Year after leading the Bulldogs in rushing last season. However, he was also suspended twice during the season for various off-field issues.
