TUSCALOOSA -- Alabama announced Wednesday that freshman running back DeSherrius Flowers would not be eligible for the fall semester. The Crimson Tide also announced that defensive back Jonathan Cook is no longer on the team.
Despite enrolling in January and participating in spring practice, Flowers will not be cleared for enrollment this fall due to a "recently discovered initial eligibility issue," according to the school's news release.
In the school's release, Tide coach Nick Saban said Cook is "no longer a member of the team." Cook played in three games last year as a redshirt freshman.
