Alabama's Isaiah Buggs will spend one more year in Tuscaloosa.

After a stellar first season with the Crimson Tide following a transfer from the junior college ranks, it looked like Isaiah Buggs could join some of his teammates and leave early for the NFL.

However, Buggs announced this afternoon that he's returning to school for his senior year.

“I want to thank you for allowing me to come here and be apart of this great program," Buggs wrote. "I always dreamed of winning a National Championship. With that being said I will return for my senior year to graduate and try to repeat this feeling of winning a National Championship again.”

Buggs played in all 14 games for Alabama, making 12 starts. He recorded 51 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
