Brent Calloway drops from Tide down to JUCO level

Brent Calloway

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.

    The article refers to him as both a 5 star recruit and a 4 star recruit. Which is it?

    He’s a 5-star THUG who should not be allowed the honor of playing on any college campus. He certainly is no scholar…quite the opposite. Hell, he’s not even street-smart let alone classroom capability. His “parent” must be very proud…….you are who you hang with pal and you hang with gangstas…..

    Although actual knowledge of a superseding, preceding criminal intent – somewhat implied from the endless barrage of calumny over various online social networking services and microblogging services that enable its users to send and read text messages – always takes precedence, as a matter of law, over this particular, or any hereto, common law right of action: defamation, Calloway’s constructive knowledge of a such an act – reasonably assumed from online hearsay – does not suggest actual knowledge; whereby, the finding of one or any proximate cause, as long as the original act was the approximate cause of the foreseeable criminal action, cannot be established because Calloway’s constructive knowledge – albeit supported by weak circumstantial evidence: rummor, opinion, goosip, et al. – as a matter of fact, concludes that the accused superseding, preceding actions of others should not impact a dazed, confused slightly sleepwalking student – all of whom had constructive possession of this card lying around the dormitory – from mistakenly leaving the bedroom dorm and purchasing junk food snacks from a vending machine with actual possession of a stolen student ID card. Calloway’s mistake does not reflect the spirit and character that his university’s football organization recognizes and reflects through all their thoughts, words and deeds. It’s obviously very disappointing and unacceptable what happened; however, actual knowledge in the precarious state of consciousness upon waking up from a deep sleep raises a few questions about the conclusion deduced from the court.

    1. Motion for summary judgment in Appellate Court – after verifying venue/jurisdiction.
    2. No new evidence – seeking judgment as a matter of law in Calloway’s favor.
    3 Based on Jon Paepcke’s interview with Calloway and reports from AL.com, more than one conclusion can reasonably be deduced: did or did not Calloway possess actual or constructive knowledge of the stolen student ID.
    4. Case Dismissed.
