McLoofus 35,182 Posted January 7, 2015 Share Posted January 7, 2015 I'm so freaking glad it's them and not us. Alabama officially says former Georgia DL Jonathan Taylor is one of its early enrollees. Dismissed from UGa after domestic violence charge.@CecilHurt Alabama issued a statement on the signing of Taylor. This comes from University spokesperson Deborah Lane.Taylor was dismissed from Georgia after a charge of felony aggravated assault and family violence last July. He also was charged with theft by deception for double-cashing meal reimbursement checks earlier this spring. Taylor, a 6-foot-4, 350-pound nose tackle, played his sophomore season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi. "Jonathan Taylor was admitted to The University of Alabama following the same procedures that the UA Admissions office uses to evaluate any student who has dealt with legal issues. The admissions process includes representatives from academic, legal, student affairs, student conduct, UAPD and counseling. Athletics is not involved in the admissions process. Taylor's continued enrollment depends on his ability to fulfill all requirements the University has specifically mandated for him during his time as a UA student." AL.com is attempting to reach head coach Nick Saban for comment. http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/01/alabama_issues_statement_on_si.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
