Michael Ricks Ineligible, Prothro On Medical Scholarship


Saban said that two players from the signing class did not report. Kerry Murphy will attend a prep school, and Michael Ricks did not achieve his necessary grades.

Double Curses:

Alabama wide receiver Tyrone Prothro has been placed on medical scholarship, almost certainly ending his college career nearly two years after breaking his leg, coach Nick Saban said Thursday.

"We do have a plan to try to continue further his rehabilitation and are hopeful he can come back and play football someday," Saban said. "The medical staff is 99.9 percent sure that this is a long-term issue we're dealing with and that it would be unusual for a guy to ever come back."
