Alabama linebacker Petey Smith confirmed yesterday afternoon that he will be transferring to Holmes Community College in Mississippi. The player said he wants to re-start his college football career:
“Basically, I just felt that I wasn’t giving it my all. I’m not going to say I wasn’t happy. I didn’t feel like I had an opportunity to show what I could do with reps and everything. Instead of waiting, I thought I’d just go somewhere else.”
Smith said he hopes to spend one year in the juco ranks and then transfer back to another BCS-level school. He told The Birmingham News that he has talked to schools in the SEC.
Smith has four years of eligibility remaining after redshirting last season. Alabama now has six inside linebackers on scholarship.
