Report: RB Altee Tenpenny to transfer from Alabama
Former blue-chip running back prospect Altee Tenpenny will reportedly leave Alabama after two seasons.
Altee Tenpenny arrived at Alabama as one of the class of 2013's highest-rated running back recruits, a consensus four-star prospect ranked No. 53 in the overall compsite top 247.
But Tenpenny was, of course, only one of many highly-ranked running back recruits to enroll at Alabama that year ... and every year. And after two seasons of struggling to make an impact on the Crimson Tide depth chart, he will reportedly look to make that impact somewhere else.
BamaOnline.com reported Sunday that Tenpenny and reserve junior tight end Malcolm Faciane "are no longer involved in football activities at the University of Alabama" and neither is "expected to be part of the 2015 Alabama roster."
Tenpenny appeared to confirm the report with a Sunday tweet that said, "The past 2 years with the Crimson Tide has been a great experience," and it was "time to start a new chapter," though the tweet has since been deleted. Tenpenny has nonetheless retweeted multiple other messages that suggest a transfer is imminent:
In his two seasons at Alabama, Tenpenny rushed 48 times for 218 yards. He received a citation for alleged marijuana possession in his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, in April 2014.
