Alabama Star Rejects Nick Saban, Leaves School
An Alabama star rejected Nick Saban and left the school this week.
Former high school star Jerome Ford has been consistently dissatisfied with his usage as a member of the Crimson Tide.
As such, about a week ago, he announced that he was leaving Tuscaloosa for greener pastures.
The assumption was that it would take him some time to find his next landing spot.
It did not.

On Tuesday, Ford took to social media and announced that he was taking his talents to Cincinnati.
Ford, a 4-star running back coming out of high school, is ranked as the 12th best all-purpose back in the country.
Standing at 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds, he has all the raw talent to be a real difference maker.
Unfortunately, he just could not really crack Saban’s offensive rotation.
Ford played in four outings this year, one of which was a start. His totals through those games were 114 yards and three scores on 24 carries.
It remains to be seen what impact he will ultimately have on Cincinnati’s offense and whether he will be permitted to play right away.
