Kingston Davis is back in the headlines, but not in a good way.
Late this past week, UAB announced that Davis has been indefinitely suspended from the football program. The suspension is related to an unspecified student-conduct issue.
Below is the school’s statement on the disciplinary measure meted out to the running back:
Kingston Davis has been placed on interim suspension from UAB pending a student conduct investigation. Due to federal student privacy laws, the institution cannot disclose details at this time.
In three games this season, Davis has rushed for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 22 carries. The two rushing touchdowns are tied for the team lead.
In mid-December of last year, Davis announced that he would be transferring from a Kansas junior college — hello “Last Chance U” — to UAB. In March of that same year, Davis had decided to transfer from Michigan.
A three-star member of the Wolverines’ 2016 recruiting class, Davis was rated as the No. 1 fullback in the country. As a true freshman in Ann Arbor, the 6-1, 245-pound back carried the ball twice for 17 yards.
Including this year, Davis still has three seasons of eligibility he can use.
