Ex-Alabama footballer Brent Calloway — dismissed in February for using a credit card that had been stolen – will enroll at Arizona Western junior college in beautiful Yuma. Calloway played a number of positions for the Crimson Tide before finally landing at H-back.
The stolen credit card used by Calloway was acquired by fellow dismissed teammates Eddie Williams, DJ Pettway and Tyler Hayes who attacked a fellow student and robbed him of it. All four players are applying for youthful offender status and a hearing could comes as soon as next month.
Calloway did not take part in the attack on the student, but he had been arrested previously for second-degree possession of marijuana. Possession of weed and the use of a stolen credit card… small enough crimes that a stint in the juco ranks could erase them? We think so. Junior colleges are the baptismal fonts of college athletics. Dive in and all your sins can be warshed away, even if you knock over a Piggly-Wiggly over in Yazoo:
If Calloway performs well at Arizona Western, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him return to a school in the SEC for his final two years of eligibility.
