Alvin Kamara commits to Tennessee: Former Alabama Crimson Tide RB chooses Volunteers

4-star running back Alvin Kamara has found a home. Again.

Kamara, who started his career with the Alabama Crimson Tide as a top-50 recruit, he was suspended twice, arrested and soon parted ways with the Tide. He now attends Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.

On Saturday, Kamara decided to give his pledge to the Tennessee Volunteers.

He took to twitter to announce his decision.

Although Kamara is joining one of their rivals, he said he feels no ill will towards the Tide.

“There are no hard feelings with me and Alabama,” Kamara told 247Sports in March. “A lot of people had a negative perception on me because I was not playing. People were saying I was a cancer to the team, I was a crybaby, I was not playing, so I was not all in — this and that.

“Really, with me not playing, it kind of gave me a way to look at it from a different perspective. Not playing made me sit back and think about, ‘You really have to work for this.’ It kind of humbled me.”

The 5’11, 200-pound Kamara attended Norcross High School in Georgia before signing with the Tide. He is ranked as the country’s second-best junior college running back (behind 5-star Auburn Tigers’ commit Jovon Robinson), the second-best overall junior college prospect in Kansas and the third-best overall junior college prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Kamara was also very interested in the Georgia Bulldogs.
