According to Al.com, former Alabama linebacker Eyabi Anoma has committed to play the 2019 football season at the University of Houston.
Anoma who originally entered the transfer portal back in February reentered last week after not enrolling in classes.
The former five-star recruit was originally going to be a big part of Alabama’s defense this upcoming season before deciding to leave.
Al.com’s Matt Zenitz also reported that Anoma was suspended by the university earlier in the summer and was later kicked out of school for another university-level issue.
During Saturdays news conference head coach, Nick Saban commented on the team’s situation with Anoma.
“We have a law that protects players and students from what you can and can’t say,” said Saban. “The guy was dismissed from school and that’s all I can really say about it.”
Anoma is now the seventh member of the crimson tide to transfer this year as he joins quarterback Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma), offensive lineman Richie Petitbon (Illinois), defensive back Kyriq McDonald (Cincinnati), quarterback Layne Hatcher (Arkansas State), long snapper Scott Meyer (Vanderbilt) and tight end Kedrick James (SMU).
