Former Alabama Crimson Tide running back Alvin Kamara has decided to enroll at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, according to 247Sports, where he will play football and can be recruited by any school and it scheduled to graduate in December.

Kamara was one of four highly-ranked running backs for Alabama in the class of 2013, but never saw the field and was suspended for the Sugar Bowl for disciplinary reasons.

After Kamara announced he was transferring in January he was linked to a number of high-profile programs with the Clemson Tigers believed to be a frontrunner to secure his commitment.

Kamara would have had to sit out this year if he transferred to another FBS program, but by going the junior college route he can play this season and be eligible to play in 2015 at the program he chooses.

The 5-10, 195-pound bacn likely will be one of the highest-ranked JUCO prospects this class. He was the No. 42 overall recruit in the class of 2013 and the No. 1 all-purpose running back according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

He was arrested Thursday in his native Norcross, Ga., for driving with a suspended license and other traffic charges.
