In 2012, Ty Flournoy-Smith played in the SEC Championship Game for Georgia … against Alabama. This fall, he’ll playing for Alabama.
In bizarre twist, Flourney-Smith a 6-foot-3, 230-pound tight end originally out of Moultrie (Ga.), committed to the Crimson Tide on Monday. His career began at Georgia in 2012, and he appeared in eight games. He then had some off-the-field problems that led to his dismissal from the program. He resurrected his career at Georgia Military College, and then was set to transfer this year. He’ll have two seasons of eligibility left at Alabama.
He had some minor injury issues at Georgia Military, but should be ready to go soon.
“It was going really good until he broke his foot,” Georgia Military coach Bert Williams told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He got rolled up blocking a guy in our third or fourth game. He made it back for the last regular-season game and bowl game. He wasn’t 100-percent but he was out there. He did a really good job for us. I would’ve liked to have had him for the whole season. But it was good he came back to show people he was healthy.”
Also coming in for the Crimson Tide were two four-star commitments over the weekend. WR Daylon Charlot is out of LSU’s backyard in Patterson (La.). He’s 5-foot-11, 180 pounds. OL Lester Cotton is a 6-foot-5, 310-pounder out of Tuscaloosa (Ala.). The Tide already have seven commitments for the class of 2015.
