Freshman Alabama running back DeSherrius Flowers has been ruled ineligble and will not enroll in Tuscaloosa in the fall, the school has said.

The school found an eligibility issue which means he will not be cleared to enroll.

Alabama is deep at running back with Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake, but four-star recruit Flowers, from Mobile, AL, would have been quite a weapon for the future.

6ft-1, 211lbĀ Flowers was ranked as the 5th-best player in Alabama and the 15th-best running back in the nation, and 146th-best player in the nation overall.

He played on Alabama’s Spring Game and came away with a minor shoulder injury. He had had some injury form in his senior year at Vigor High School, spraining his ankle on in the season. He was a weapon in not only the running game – he had a 251 yard, 4-touchdown game on October 25th – but also the return and he even threw a 68-yard touchdown.
