    Brandon Kennedy Reportedly Transferring From UA (update: x-ferring to tennessee)

    Like Warmack, Kennedy was part of the Tide's 2015 recruiting class.


    With those two gone, only nine of the 24 members of that class are still at Alabama.


    Hope he lands on his feet somewhere else. He played well for you in 2016.

    Who replaces him as your #2 center?

    Pretty sure he was going to be the starter - probably why Kennedy is leaving. Wondering who was #3 before at center.

    Might change, but Emil Ekiyor was expected to be a contender at center.

    Do we really want a freshmen to start at C? Somebody on that line gotta shift to C... Ekiyor needs a year to adjust.

    Not the starter - the backup. Ross will start.

    Who said anything about starting? We're talking about Ross' backup.

    I think he means if RP were to get hurt. Could be one of those thing where EE is getting some reps with the 2s, but we're sliding another OL over as the true #2 if needed

    I have no idea how good Ekiyor is, but you only had 3 players take snaps at center, and 2 are gone. I would move Ekiyor up in the rotation unless he is clearly not ready. But you need a 3rd center, so someone else will clearly be getting practice reps at the position.

    Who replaces him as your #2 center?
    Whither Josh Casher? Or is the (nationally) No.-2 ranked center from that 2015 recruiting class past tense, positionally speaking?
