Alabama freshman DB reportedly leaving program for community college
Alabama has reportedly lost a player from its program as Kadarius Calloway is moving on to East Mississippi Community College.
As Robbie Faulk of 247 Sports reported, this is the latest in a growing theme of Mississippi natives leaving Alabama. Calloway also updated his Twitter profile to reflect the move.
Calloway is a freshman defensive back, and native of Philadelphia, Miss., initially flipped his commitment from Mississippi State to Alabama in July, 2020, after he committed to the Bulldogs in October of 2019. The 6-foot, 200-pound athlete signed with the Tide in December and enrolled at Alabama in late May, Bama OnLine reported.
A 4-star recruit in the 2021 cycle, Calloway was the nation’s 135th overall prospect, No. 4 athlete and No. 2 player in the state of Mississippi, according to the 247Sports Composite.
At Philadelphia (Miss.) High School, Calloway excelled on both sides of the ball in his final two prep seasons, recording 343 rushing yards and five touchdowns to go with 1,245 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns on 42 catches. On the defensive side of the football, he added 67 tackles and nine pass breakups while posting 13 combined turnovers (11 interceptions, two fumble recoveries) across his junior and senior campaigns at the high school level.
Former MSU target Kadarius Calloway is leaving Alabama and headed to EMCC.
Six Mississippi High School players have signed with Alabama since 2016 and four of them transferred.
