Ex-Alabama H-Back Brent Calloway Headed to JUCO

Former Alabama H-Back Brent Calloway will continue his football career at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona, according to al.com.

Calloway was dismissed by Alabama four months ago after his second run-in with law enforcement since arriving in Tuscaloosa.

Shortly after arriving on campus in October of 2011, Calloway was charged with a misdemeanor count of possessing marijuana.

Then, this past February he was arrested in connection to two robberies. Despite not participating in the robberies himself, he was charged with fraudulently using a credit/debit card.  

He and the other three Alabama players implicated in the case were subsequently kicked out of the program.

Calloway's unheralded departure from Alabama paints a stark contrast to his celebrated entrance.

Rated a four-star prospect and ranked one of the top 100 players at all positions by 247sports.com, his recruitment was extremely competitive between rivals Auburn and Alabama. After changing his decision multiple times, Alabama was relieved to see him ultimately land in Tuscaloosa.

After redshirting his freshman season, Calloway saw limited action in 2012.  

Although his 6'1" and 215-pound frame seemed most suitable for H-back, he was switched to running back to strengthen the Tide's depth at that position in the wake of early-season injuries to Dee Hart and Jalston Fowler.  As a running back, he gained 63 yards on 10 carries.

He was also used sporadically at linebacker as well as on Alabama's special teams.

Despite his jack-of-all-trades nature at Alabama, he will likely play running back at Arizona Western, as he attempts to get his college football career back on track.

Should he desire a return to the FBS ranks and a program is willing to take a chance on him, he would have two seasons of eligibility left following this season in Yuma.
