On the day before the Fourth of July, one member of the Alabama Crimson Tide declared his independence from Nick Saban‘s squad.
In a couple of tweets posted to his Twitter account, Brandon Hill revealed that he has been granted a release from his UA scholarship. There was no word on to where the rising redshirt sophomore offensive lineman may transfer.
We would also be remiss in not noting that the school has yet to address Hill’s status with the team.
Regardless, here are the player’s goodbye missives:
When God closes one door he opens up another one!—

Other than take away a little depth, the departure will have little impact on the Tide’s line prospects for the upcoming season.
A three-star member of UA’s 2012 recruiting class, Hill was rated as the No. 57 tackle in the country and the No. 13 player at any position in the state of Tennessee. He had offers from the likes of Arkansas, Georgia, Nebraska and Tennessee coming out of high school
After taking a redshirt as a true freshman, Hill didn’t see the field in 2013.
