Tenpenny, a four-star recruit and the eighth-best running back in 2013 class, started his collegiate career at Alabama. He rushed for 218 yards on 48 carries before leaving Alabama in January.

Tenpenny has been practicing with Nicholls State this week, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to play this season.
