Budding Alabama Star Arrested for DUI

Budding Alabama Star Arrested for DUI

Kentucky v Alabama

Not good news for the Crimson Tide.

After a disappointing loss to the Clemson Tigers in the title game of the College Football Playoffs last season, Alabama is gearing up and getting ready for another incredible run at a national title.

Unfortunately, it sounds like one of their young stars might be in some massive trouble going into the season. Defensive lineman and former top recruit Da’Shawn Hand was arrested for a DUI earlier this week.

Hand is a former five-star recruit (tops at his position and fifth in the nation according to 247Sports), and while he didn’t see the field much in his freshman season, he still showed flashes of star potential.

Many expected Hand to see a serious uptick in playing time this season. However, it sounds like there could be some discipline coming down after this incident, which would certainly be a blow to this team, especially considering their season starts with a blitz against Florida State.

Stay tuned for updates on this one, which are bound to roll in no matter how little the administration wants us to know.
