Transferring Alabama RB Derrick Gore finds a new home
Redshirt sophomore RB Derrick Gore, who recently announced that he was transferring from the Alabama Crimson Tide program, has apparently found a new football home.
In addition to changing his Twitter profile picture to a Louisiana-Monroe logo, Gore also shared a picture of the Warhawks’ logo on his Instagram page:

Gore was used primarily on special teams during his Alabama career, sitting behind fellow running backs Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris and Joshua Jacobs this season. He carried the ball 18 times for 93 yards and a touchdown in limited 2016 action.
Gore will have two years of eligibility remaining when he transfers to Louisiana-Monroe, but will have to sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
