A University of Alabama football player was reportedly arrested over the weekend.
According to multiple reports, Alabama defensive back Elias Ricks, who transferred into the Crimson Tide program from LSU, was arrested in Mississippi.
“Alabama cornerback Eli Ricks was arrested in Laurel, Miss. on Sunday evening for charges of speeding, no insurance and possession of marijuana in the first offense, according to the inmate roster for the Jones County Sheriff’s Department.
His bond was set at $0.”
The 6-foot-2 cornerback from California started his career at LSU where he earned Freshman All-SEC and AP All-American honors during his first season.
He entered the transfer portal in November, roughly a month after the firing of head coach Ed Orgeron.
Ricks is expected to compete for a starting role at Alabama, which lost starting cornerback Josh Jobe to the NFL.
