Dee Hart was a five-star running back out of high school who had plans to follow in the footsteps of Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson to become the next great Alabama running back. Well, things don't always work out the way you hope, and now Hart will be looking to replace Kapri Bibbs at Colorado State.

Hart told the Orlando Sentinel that he's transferring to Colorado State where he'll finish his career. Hart has some familiarity with the coaching staff there, as Jim McElwain was the offensive coordinator at Alabama while Hart was being recruited before leaving for Colorado State in 2012.

Since Hart has already graduated from Alabama he will not have to sit out the 2014 season, and there should be carries to go around after Kapri Bibbs and his 1,741 yards and 31 touchdowns to the NFL following last season.

Hart never saw much time on the field at Alabama, as he suffered a knee injury before his freshman season in 2011, and then he hurt his knee again after returning a punt against Ole Miss in 2012. Over the 2012 and 2013 seasons he saw limited playing time, carrying the ball only 43 times for 164 yards.
