Alabama Freshman Defensive Lineman Antonio Alfano has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
The former 5-star recruit was officially listed in the transfer portal on Wednesday evening, has confirmed 247Sports. Alfano was canceled from the roster of Crimson Tide on Wednesday.
Alfano had undergone some disciplinary matters in early September with head coach Nick Saban. "For personal reasons," he also missed three of the camp preparations of Tide . But after his parents posted a statement on Twitter, Saban shared his most revealing update so far.
" I just know that the guy basically stopped." Saban said in September. "He stopped going to class, he stopped coming here We tried to encourage him, we tried to help him, we tried to have counseling with him to help him, and all these things are still available to him if he wants them but he did not respond to anything until he responded, you just have to assume that the guy left off. "
Alfano was the highest of the Crimson Tide-rated recruit in his 201
Alfano enrolled early in Alabama in January, and the 6-foot, 4-pound, 285-pound lineman recorded two sacks in the spring game in April. But he has not played in any game this season.
The Transfer Portal of the NCAA, which was established in October last year, now enables student students to enter their names in an online database and to wait for the university teams to contact each other. It is also worth noting that players can also withdraw their name from the portal.
