Former 5-star Alabama signee Eyabi Anoma dismissed by Houston Cougars
Eyabi Anoma signed with Alabama rated as the nation’s No. 4 overall prospect in the 2018 recruiting cycle.
Unfortunately, his elite recruiting ranking is his lasting legacy at this point in his college career.
Anoma’s time in Tuscaloosa was brief as the defensive lineman lasted only one season in Nick Saban’s program before transferring to Houston. It turns out Anoma’s time in with Dana Holgorsen’s Houston program will be just as brief.
Houston announced on Tuesday that Anoma has been dismissed for a violation of team rules. If the talented defensive lineman from Baltimore wishes to continue his collegiate playing career, he will have to do so at his third stop in as many seasons.
The highest-rated member of Alabama’s 2018 recruiting class was a 2018 Under Armor All-American coming out of St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. He was recruited to Tuscaloosa by former Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley.
During his only collegiate season, Anoma registered nine tackles for Alabama as a true freshman. Anoma had to sit out last season at Houston due to NCAA transfer rules, meaning he never managed to make his impact felt with a Cougar program that surely could have used a lineman as talented as the Baltimore native.
