COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Former Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell is headed to Alabama State, according to published reports.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that UGAsports.com says Crowell would transfer to Alabama State, which is located in Montgomery, Ala.

Alabama State is a member of the Football Championship Subdivision, so Crowell would not need to sit out a year after transferring.

The former Carver High standout was dismissed from the Georgia football team last Friday after being arrested by Athens-Clarke County Police Department earlier that morning on three gun charges, two of which are felonies.

Crowell’s defense will be led by Steve Sadow, a nationally known criminal defense lawyer based in Atlanta.

Amazing

It's amazing to me that anyone would want to put up with his antics. He gets a "free" education while someone more deserving sits out. He is rewarded for a talent that he wastes and takes for granted. Instead of being ostracized, he's rewarded. Sickening.

I agree with RM..He'll be right at home in Oakland.

Doubt it

I don't think, with his work ethic, he will ever be drafted. Takes more than "potential" at the next level.

Draft potential or not, tiny

Draft potential or not, tiny schools in no-name leagues froth at the mouth at the thought of getting star power from a powerhouse team in a real league. They'll gladly overlook criminal records. The thought of beating their rivals and bringing more warm bodies out to the games has them jumping at the chance to accept a criminal.

You kidding me? The Oakland

You kidding me? The Oakland Raiders carry their own probation officer with them for away games.

the current raiders are not the raiders of old, in the case of mr. crowell he will be playing for a penetentary team in about 2-3 years. since he has a high powered defense lawyers of course his defense will be "racism/racist/racism because he was stopped by the police and he was profiled, if he was white he wouldn't have gotten stopped" there might even be an attempt by the "justice bruthas" al and jessie to get the charges dropped. at least at alabama state he will fit right in with his "dreads and tatts" walking to class (if he will go) with his pants below his butt.

Crowell: Loser Person-Loser Athlete!

Alabama State University: Joke! Look at their web site (which I have supplied link) upper left in gold. "We teach class." How can administrators, faculty and coaches claim to "teach class" when they admit students charged with felonies and other crimes just so they get a football player? That is "not class!"

Whichever school he was

Whichever school he was destined to go to would justify his admission to the team by claiming that THEY know how to get to the kid and be able to turn him around...something Georgia was never able to do! Whatever! I'll believe it when I see it!

dear sweet son, the class
Unpublished

dear sweet son,

the class they are talking about is "thuggin 101" it shows how to walk, talk, act, show disdain for authority, and sneer for the booking/mugshot. the next class will be "jailin 300" that is how to act when in jail or prison and the correct terminology to use when released. for example when he gets released he will expain to any he was "incarcerated" (not being in jail).

If he's found not guilty with

If he's found not guilty with his high dollar defense team, does he come back to D1? If not, I agree on the Raiders or even Dallas. I just don't think this kid has enough heart to make it to the NFL.

To most all of the above; he

To most all of the above; he is just a symptom of the bigger disease. Win at any cost, and the rabid sports fans enable this to happen.

Disgusting...

Really?

itsanotherday, how are fans the blame for this? As a somewhat rabid fan myself, how am I responsible for this? It would be interesting to hear your theory.
