Darrington Sentimore latest to leave the Tide

BCS Championship Football

Rumored to be considering a transfer for the past month or so after being placed on indefinite suspension, Darrington Sentimore has reportedly pulled the trigger on a move out of Tuscaloosa.

The defensive coordinator at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has confirmed to the Birmingham News that Sentimore has decided to move on from Alabama to the JUCO level.  Steve Davis added that the defensive lineman should be at his new school next Tuesday.

It was announced in late June that Sentimore and redshirt freshman wide receiver Keiwone Malone ”have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules and policy” according to a statement from head coach Nick Saban.

It was reported over the weekend that Malone would be transferring to Memphis.

As a redshirt freshman in 2010, Sentimore played in 11 games.  Based on his performance this spring and the praise he garnered from Saban, Sentimore was expected to see an increased role in the Tide’s line rotation.  Obviously, that will no longer be the case.

In addition to Sentimore and Malone, defensive lineman Brandon Moore, running backs Demetrius Goode and Corey Grant, defensive back B.J. Scott and linebacker Petey Smith have all, since the middle of January, left the football program we think — OK, I think — should be the No. 1 team in the country heading into the 2011 season.

    has Saban “processed” his way to 85 on scholarship yet? he has to be getting pretty close.

    LOL bamasucks, 100% part of the oversigning process.

    It’s true. Saban runs off projected starters in positions of little depth, just to make the numbers work. He’s really that ruthless.

    I’d love to think that ‘Bama was so incredibly stocked at every position that Saban could afford to run off guys who played in 11 games last year for being too low on the depth chart. But call me crazy; somehow I just don’t think that’s the case.

    Saban is certainly an imaginative one. Suspend a guy indefinitely for misusing his knife and fork at the training table, forcing him to go where he can just eat with his hands.
    Wonder what’s next, Old Nick?
