Report: Alabama Crimson Tide behind a recruit's transfer from Florida to Alabama high school




For all of the weird transfer stories I’ve read, I’ve never encountered one quite like this one from the Pensacola News Journal.

According to the paper, the University of Alabama convinced a three-star recruit, Darius Paige, to transfer from Washington High School to Foley, Ala. to help him become academically eligible for the Crimson Tide.

The paper reports that “Crimson Tide assistant coach Jeremy Pruitt recommended he go to Foley because they could ‘take care of him academically.’”

You can read the full story here.
