Former Alabama running back Alvin Kamara might be considering a transfer to Clemson, according to a report on Monday from 247Sports.com.
Apparently, Kamara will be meeting with Tigers running backs coach Tony Elliot on Monday night. If the signs are correct, Clemson could be the team to beat for his services over Florida State and Oklahoma State.
The Tigers certainly need a back with Kamara’s talent after losing 1,000-yard rusher Roderick McDowell has graduated.
Kamara was released from his scholarship at Alabama a few days ago, the result of just too many elite running backs on the Crimson Tide depth chart. Kamara, a four-star recruit from Norcross, Ga., was lost in the shuffle and forced to redshirt while fellow freshmen Derrick Henry and Altee Tenpenny found their way on the field. That’s certainly no knock on Kamara’s ability, as last year’s Alabama running back class was one of the greatest recruiting hauls of all time.
The freshman has four years of eligibility remaining, but will have to sit out next season due to transfer rules, unless he winds up at a non-FBS school or gets an NCAA waiver allowing him to play immediately.
