Tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith will be making his return to the SEC next season, having announced his commitment to the Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday.
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospect, considered the best JUCO tight end in the country by 247 Sports, announced his decision on the popular social media platform Myspace. (Just kidding. He used Twitter like a normal person.)

Flournoy-Smith appeared in eight games as a true freshman for the Georgia Bulldogs in 2012. However, he found himself in legal trouble after being arrested for falsifying a crime report in February of last year. (In case you don’t remember, Flournoy-Smith went to authorities and reported his textbooks as having been stolen, but the police soon discovered he had actually sold the books to a book store.) After the incident, the tight end elected to transfer to Georgia Military College. He caught only six passes of 134 yards in 2013, but five of those receptions were for touchdowns. His abilities as a blocker helped the team rush for 3,500 yards and 43 touchdowns.
