Running back Isaiah Crowell has chosen to enroll at Alabama State after being dismissed from Georgia following his arrest in June on felony gun charges.
Pending his legal challenges, he would be eligible to compete at his new school this fall because Alabama State is a member of the Football Championship Subdivision.
Crowell is accused of possessing a weapon in a school zone and possessing an altered ID mark, both felonies. Steve Sadow, one of the most-renowned defense attorneys in Georgia, is set to represent him in the case.
The former gem of Georgia's "Dream Team" recruiting class in 2011, Crowell was named SEC freshman of the year despite battling injuries and two off-the-field incidents last fall. He rushed for 850 yards last season.
As for the Bulldogs, Mark Richt's squad still has quality options in the backfield as they look to capture the SEC East crown for a second straight season. Redshirt sophomore Ken Malcome is the top option to get the most carries, but the 'Dawgs have a pair of freshmen who could move up the depth chart with strong fall camps.
