As it turns out, Alvin Kamara will drop down several rungs on the college football ladder in an attempt to restart his playing career.
The erstwhile Alabama running back revealed to 247Sports.com Sunday that he will spend the 2014 season at the junior college level. Specifically, Kamara intends to enroll at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, with the hope being that he can get back to the FBS level in 2015.
Kamara was reportedly interested in transferring to Clemson, having already visited the ACC school according to at least one report. Florida State and Oklahoma State were also rumored to be under consideration.
It was confirmed in the middle of last month that Kamara would be transferring from the Tide after just one season. During that one year in Tuscaloosa, Kamara racked up more suspensions (two) than carries (zero). Late last week, Kamara was arrested on multiple misdemeanor traffic offenses.
Coming out of Norcross, Ga., as a four-star recruit, Kamara was rated as the No. 2 all-purpose back in the country in the Class of 2013.
