Alabama Commit Johnson Arrested Again; Tide Must Cut Ties

Alabama football commitment D.J. Johnson was arrested earlier this week for the second time in the last month.

Johnson was released from jail earlier this week and placed on house arrest as he faces two rape allegations. Johnson’s restrictions allow him to attend classes at Spanish Fort High School but exclude him from after-school football practice, before-school weight-lifting sessions or meeting, and football games, according to the Mobile Press-Register.

Johnson was charged with first-degree rape this week less than a month after he was arrested and charged with second-degree rape and sodomy.

The two cases are separate and unrelated, according to Daphne Police spokesman Lt. Jud Beedy.

Alabama coach Nick Saban needs to end the school’s relationship with Johnson, who’s still listed as an Alabama commitment by Rivals.com. The first arrest earlier this month should have been enough to push Saban in that direction. The most recent charge should leave no doubt.

NCAA rules restrict Saban from commenting publicly on Johnson’s situation, but Saban is permitted to confirm if he’s still recruiting a prospect. Saban should let the public know as soon as possible that Johnson is no longer a potential Alabama football player.

Kentucky Lands Alabama Safety

Kentucky has received a commitment from safety Jacoby Glenn from Vigor High School in Mobile, Ala.

Auburn Adds Two To Class Of 2011

Auburn’s first commitment on Wednesday came from defensive end Devaunte Sigler from B.C. Rain High School in Mobile, Ala.

Sigler made the announcement at his school, choosing Auburn over LSU and Mississippi State.

I’ve had a lot of time to think about it, and now I know,” Sigler said, according to the Mobile Press-Register.

Sigler’s goals are high as he prepares to enter college. He said he plans to be the “next Nick Fairley,” referring to the former Auburn defensive tackle expected to be drafted near the top of April’s NFL Draft.

Auburn might have also found the next running back to make an instant impact in Gus Malzahn’s offense. Tre Mason from Park Vista High School in Lake Worth, Fla., committed to Auburn over Ole Miss.

It was the place that felt the most like home to me,” Mason told ESPN.com. “The coaching staff is great. The players were cool. Everything was great.”

Mason became Auburn’s 21st commitment for the class of 2011.
