Alabama graduate transfer Brandon Kennedy is hoping to play for another SEC program during the 2018 season. The Crimson Tide are trying to prevent that from happening.

Kennedy, a former four-star recruit, reportedly has interest in transferring to Auburn or Tennessee. The offensive lineman is seeking more playing time.

Alabama has reportedly denied Kennedy's initial appeal to play for an SEC program in 2018.

From AL.com:

Alabama denied offensive lineman Brandon Kennedy's initial appeal to transfer to another SEC school on Monday, sources told AL.com.

Kennedy, who decided to leave the Crimson Tide program in early May, is hoping to join either Auburn or Tennessee as a graduate transfer but is still blocked from even having contact with those two schools as well as any other SEC schools and any future Alabama opponents.

The next step for Kennedy, who graduated in December, is an in-person hearing with Alabama's appeal board.

Kennedy was a backup offensive lineman for Alabama last season before suffering an injury. He's a starting-caliber player for a program that isn't quite as loaded as the Crimson Tide.

Stay tuned for more updates.
