Ex-Bama Player Calloway Goes The Juco Route

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEx-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:

 

O' BROTHER- DELMAR'S BAPTISM

 

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.

Tight End Clear Commits To Texas A&M

Arizona Western Community College tight end Cameron Clear has committed to Texas A&M.

Arizona Western coach Tom Minnick confirmed the commitment to ESPN RecruitingNation.

“He’s an SEC kid,” Minnick said. “He’s a big, physical, good-looking kid that everybody wanted. He did a great job for us blocking and we use our tight ends a ton.”

Clear played in 12 games for Tennessee as a freshman in 2011 before he was dismissed from the team in May following an arrest on a felony theft charge. Clear pleaded guilty to an amended charge of misdemeanor theft in July.

Clear chose Texas A&M over offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State, Oklahoma and San Diego State.

Arkansas Puts Up A Football Billboard In Arizona

The newest trick in the playbook of many a college football coach is to put up an advertising billboard in another state where recruits grow up fast and strong.  Various SEC billboards have popped up in Georgia, Florida and Mississippi in recent years.

But Arkansas is taking things a step further… actually quite a few steps further to the West.  ArkansasSports360.com is reporting that UA has put up a billboard on Interstate 8 in Yuma, Arizona.  What’s in Yuma — aside from cactii?  Arizona Western College, the juco home of a number of top recruits each year.

The billboard reads simply “Arkansas Football… Visit THISISARKANSASFOOTBALL.COM” and sports a pair of Razorback eyes.  And while the Hogs didn’t land former Arizona Western offensive lineman Aaron Douglas — the former Tennessee Vol inked with Alabama’s Crimson Tide — Arkansas did sign four players from the state of Arizona in this year’s class.

In case you’re wondering, the billboard cost $1,704.

Alabama Signs Former Vol Douglas

Offensive lineman Aaron Douglas from Arizona Western Community College in Yuma, Ariz., has signed a national letter of intent with Alabama.

Douglas, who will begin classes at Alabama in January, will have a chance to start right away on Alabama’s offensive line.

Douglas began his career at Tennessee when he signed with the Vols out of Maryville (Tenn.) High School in 2008. He started at right tackle for UT as a redshirt freshman in 2009.

Douglas decided to transfer from UT after Lane Kiffin left for Southern Cal in January. UT coach Derek Dooley wouldn’t release Douglas from his scholarship if he chose a school within eight hours of his home. That’s why Douglas chose Arizona Western. He was free to sign with any school he wanted after he attended a junior college.

Douglas isn’t the only prospect from Arizona Western expected to help Alabama right away. The Crimson Tide has a commitment from defensive tackle Jesse Williams, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 1 junior college prospect by Rivals.com.
