Former Georgia Bulldogs running back Isaiah Crowell, who was booted out of Athens after getting arrested on felony gun charges at the end of June, has found a new home: Alabama State.

According to UGASports.com, Crowell has been confirmed and will be able to suit up for the FCS Hornets in their first game on the road at Bethune-Cookman on September 2nd.

Coach Reggie Barlow told the website: “I talked with Mrs. Debbie, Isaiah’s mom, and I really wanted to get clearance from them to be able to go ahead and say that it was a go. She’s given me permission to do that. He’s been admitted and will start our second session of summer school on Monday.

Barlow added in the interview: “As we were showing him around that’s one of the things I heard him whispering to his mom, ‘man, a new beginning,'” Barlow said. “I imagine he’s got the thought process of having the opportunity to restore his name, his credibility and all that.

Barlow added that it was his players who wanted Crowell to come and be a piece of the Hornets’ nest – which finished 8-3 last season and second in the SWAC.

BOTTOM LINE: Good news for Crowell for things to be finished so quickly on the footballing side. The hopes and prayers for the Crowell family is that the felony gun charge will also be dropped.
