Alabama could be without one of its top talented pass rushers when the Crimson Tide kick off preseason camp next Friday.
Sophomore outside linebacker Eyabi Anoma is “currently not attending classes at The University of Alabama,” according to a statement by the school’s Division of Strategic Communications department provided to the Montgomery Advertiser on Friday.
No further details were available regarding Anoma’s status with the football team.
The Tuscaloosa News was first to report Anoma’s situation.
If he is not enrolled in and attending classes at Alabama, Anoma would be unavailable to participate in any athletic activities, including the football team’s preseason camp which begins next weekend.
The university’s July summer semester runs through July 31 with final exams set for next Thursday and Friday. Registration for the Fall semester began in late March with classes set to begin August 21.
Anoma, a former five-star signee from Baltimore, Maryland, caused a bit of a stir earlier this offseason when he flirted with the idea of transferring, briefly entering the NCAA’s transfer portal in February before withdrawing his name a day later following discussions with Tide head coach Nick Saban.
