Former Alabama running back Alvin Kamara announced via Twitter that he is transferring to Tennessee.
Kamara was a highly-touted recruit coming out of high school in 2013. It was initially reported that Kamara would not be allowed to transfer within the SEC but that restriction was lifted.
Kamara initially said he would transfer to a junior college and return to the FBS level in 2015. Instead, he will likely sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
In addition to Tennessee, Kamara visited Clemson, and Georgia was also considered.
Kamara had a trouble-filled freshman season at Alabama as he was suspended twice. He missed the game against LSU for violating team rules and behavior, and he was banned from the Sugar Bowl.
Kamara hopes to work his way into significant playing time with Tennessee after being low on Alabama’s depth chart.
