Nearly four months to the day he was booted by Alabama, Brent Calloway has decided to continue his playing career at a much, much lower level than he’s used to.
According to al.com, Calloway has decided to continue his playing career at Arizona Western College, where he will start out as a running back after spending time there as well as linebacker and H-back with the Tide. After playing the 2013 season at the JUCO level, Calloway would have two years of eligibility remaining if he returns to the FBS ranks.
Along with three teammates, Calloway was arrested in connection to a pair of robberies this past February. While Calloway did not physically participate in the robberies, he was charged with fraudulent use of a credit/debit card. That, though was Calloway’s second arrest since coming to the Tide as a five-star recruit in 2011; in October of that year, he was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
All four players were dismissed from the football program roughly two weeks after the alleged crimes were committed.
Calloway was a four-star member of the Tide’s 2011 recruiting class, rated as the No. 38 player at any position in the country that year. His signing with Alabama was the culmination of a recruiting roller coaster ride that continued on into his very brief playing career in Tuscaloosa, with Calloway redshirting his true freshman season and playing a very role in the 12 games in which he appeared last season.
