Tarence Farmer Not Returning

According to a variety of published reports, wide receiver Tarence Farmer will not be returning to Alabama this Fall.

Originally a late signee in the 2007 recruiting class out of Houston, Farmer committed to Alabama as a defensive back. He had a prior relationship with newly-hired Alabama OC Major Applewhite, and committed to Alabama a few days after Applewhite's arrival at Alabama. He played defensive back in his true freshman campaign at Alabama, but things never materialized there. This Spring, he was moved to wide receiver, where he didn't see a great deal of action either.

At this point, I don't know why Farmer is leaving. I would speculate that he has just chosen to transfer to a school closer to home, but again that's all speculation on my part. I would think it is an issue of playing time.

Either way, though I will have to crunch the numbers later, I do believe Farmer's departure -- assuming Zeke Knight does not return -- will trim the roster just enough to where we can bring in 25 players this Fall without exceeding the NCAA mandated limit of 85 players on scholarship at any given time.
